  • 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.

    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
