    A pleasant and surprisingly polished fish-out-of-water comedy.

    In the end, even Foxx is drowned out by the parade of one-note supporting characters.

    Would not even make a decent five-minute TV sketch. At any length, it smells.

    A lot of it works for two reasons: the situation allows for plenty of business with small-town eccentrics, and Jamie Foxx has been given a loose rein in the central role.

    It looks like the film is angling for a "Northern Exposure" reunion, except with none of the regional eccentricity.
  6. A real dud, with few laughs, no characterization, little story, a cluster of stereotypes and clichés and just plain nothing for Foxx to do.
