  1. Who knew Samuel L. Jackson and Eugene Levy would make such a dynamic comic duo?
  2. While nothing in the movie - least of all the two main performances - is especially fresh or original, it does have a few decent gags and amusing moments.
  3. Both Jackson and Levy are better than director Les Mayfield's ("Blue Streak") meandering comedy.
  4. Reviewed by: Mike Clark

    In Roy Orbison terms, enduring this movie is like working for The Man.
  5. 38
    Nobody needed to make it, nobody needs to see it, Jackson and Levy are too successful to waste time with it. It plays less like a film than like a deal.
  6. Less a movie than a longform, live-action Celebrity Death Match between its leads, this wheezing comedy may herald the death knell of the interracial buddy-cop farce.
  7. 0
    It's just awful. Pointless, lazy, derivative and paralyzingly dull.
