    An engaging, often very funny fish-out-of-water story that provides Hugh Grant with his best part to date.
  2. Reviewed by: Jay Carr

    It brings an enlivening wit to a comedy of culture collision.
  3. A lightweight comedy that has more than enough laughs to justify its silly, scatterbrained premise.
  4. 50
    A lifeless, confused mess, peppered with laughs, yes, but illogically and crudely plotted and smothered in tonedeaf music cues.
  5. A limply derivative, disappointingly trivial and hokey fish-out-of-water crime comedy.
  6. It strains to hard for laughs, with stale jokes about unweildy corpses.
