fairly enjoyable, a little off-kilter, a solid Robbins with a not-too-annoying Lawrence
This kind of "buddy" picture is something rather unexpected considering the director (behind such comedy "classics" as Ace Ventura 2 and Kung Pow: Enter the Fist, not that they're bad films). While it's not without some share of stupidity, it also has its share of brains too, somewhere. It's basically a B comedy with A-list stars and a pretty high budget, but it doesn't sell its audience short of the goods. Martin Lawrence will have his fan-base here as strong, if not stronger, than in some of his other starring vehicles. He does get some dimension to his character, as a guy who has the usual Lawrence-type sarcasm and humor and also some conflict with his life. It's a good balance with Tim Robbins, with his own sort of crisis as well. The plot involves a robbery, and some hold-ups, some hicks, and a dancing security guard. The overall scope of the film, with a soundtrack fairly standard, isn't anything great (although one scene where a song by Scatman as Robbins puts out a certain fire is one of the funniest scenes he's ever done). But this is made up for by some clever bits, and a good repore by the stars.
