Review this movie
PatC.Jun 14, 2007The ease in which the hilarity oozes from this movie obscures its greater achievement, which is the deft way it presents its plot. It takes a broad spectrum of characters and plays them off each other in a merciless mix of outrageousness and serious restriant. This is textbook on how to tell a story. Top drawer comedy.
Sep 2, 2011Many of the jokes fail and those that are funny are played out far too long. Nothing is done to make the "wrongfully accused" cliche more believable. There are a couple great scenes, and Aykroyd and Murphy both try hard, but their characters almost never interact with each other. Wasted potential.
Jul 2, 2013This comedy succeeds where most comedies fail; it has a plot while also providing laughs. Its sole purpose was to not just provide cheap laughs, but to also tell a story. Murphy and Aykroyd were both good in their roles and overall, I enjoyed this movie a lot.
