Code Name: The Cleaner (2007)
Did they run out of money?
Watching this movie, I kept thinking they couldn't afford to have a
real script written, and must have run out of money when they were
about 2/3 of the way through, and couldn't finish editing it. Not to
mention, they probably couldn't afford Martin Lawrence for the lead
role, so they filled it with Cedric the Entertainer, who does better in
supporting roles. Cedric does have several funny scenes, though.
The plot is completely unintelligible, and undeveloped, but based on
the genre you can predict most of the action. It's the ever-popular
"hero has something secret the bad guys want, so they can sell it to
terrorists for a fortune, but it's missing." Not to mention, the scenes
or "shticks" that have been better done elsewhere. For example, every
time Cedric tried to be funny with judo moves, I kept thinking that he
ripped that off from Martin, who does it much better. There is a brief
cat-fight scene that is far inferior to the one in Undercover Brother
(which is an excellent movie, and much funnier overall).
