1.5 of 5

“..the title doesn't really match the performances - no one here goes out on a limb for anything. The entire production set it's goals so low that even though everyone involved hits their mark..”
by Clayton Hollifield [Clayholio Watches Movies]
1.5 of 5

“..so predictable-even if the movie tries to surprise you by proffering almost zero clues-is a marvel of cinematic ignorance..”
by Paul Arrand Rodgers [Fear of a Ghost Planet]
2.5 of 5

“..a stinker buddy cop comedy that is the antithesis of convolution, and possibly the definition of slow moving. Edge and Kennedy have no chemistry..”
by Nate Boss [High-Def Digest]
