    The movie made me laugh a lot anyway. It has a big, inventive cast of loons and a great premise.
  2. Mostly a lazy string of setups and sight gags, of tongue-in-cheek confrontations between the two stars that barely amount to sketches.
  3. This frothy little crime comedy isn't half bad, bubbling with caper-farce energy supplied by a game ensemble cast and a source novel by prolific pulp writer Donald E. Westlake.

    Struggles for any kind of movement and cohesion -- and most of all for any kind of humor.

    Among the disconnected scenes are a few that are downright hilarious, and the actors do their best to rise above disjointed material.

    A film with almost zero redeeming value.
  7. Maybe the worst thing that can happen is that every other movie at the multiplex will be sold out this weekend.
