  • Summary: Sporting a cut-off flannel shirt and armed with a truck-load of one-liners, Larry the Cable Guy is America's reigning king of blue-collar comedy. Larry makes his feature film debut as a big city health inspector whose life is turned upside-down when he's saddled with a straight-arrow rookie partner and assigned the biggest case of his career.

    It'll give fans exactly what they expect while passing unseen by anyone else.
  2. As an expat redneck, I recognize the deep, dumb need of every group for its own culturally customized minstrel show. Larry, a junker ''star'' vehicle run on arse wind and fan love, fills that niche.

    Entirely comfortable as the crude character he has honed in countless stand-up routines and TV appearances, Larry the Cable Guy sustains a level of likeability that enables him to get away with a lot more than he has any right to. But, he remains very much an acquired taste.

    Though some of his one-liners are pretty good, his shtick can't sustain this dutifully scripted comedy. Megyn Price, who's done time on the sitcom Grounded for Life, is a welcome distraction as the waitress with a crush on Larry.

    ''Health Inspector" hopes to do for Larry what ''Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" did for Jim Carrey, who in this context looks like Noel Coward.

    Laughing at this turkey might not necessarily make you a redneck, but it sure does make you easily amused.

    Very raunchy and inappropriate.

    I'm a fan of Larry the Cable Guy's stand-up comedy, so naturally I thought I would enjoy this movie. As you can tell by my score I was very wrong. The majority of this film's humor is focused on making fun of the mentally handicapped, crippled, and homosexual. Let's not forget about all of the awful poop and fart jokes in the movie. It's a disgusting, unfunny movie and one that is not worth your time, no matter how much of a Larry the Cable Guy fan you are. Expand

    It's actually impressive to me that this runs a meager 89 minutes and yet I felt as though half my life had drained away in that time. I can't even picture the most simple-minded good ol' boy enjoying this. Expand
