Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With a story that's too flimsy to support its running time, this road-movie comedy has plenty of problems, but at its best it's a surprisingly inspired vehicle for the clever teaming of Tim Robbins and Martin Lawrence. Robbins plays an addled advertising executive who comes home early one day and discovers his wife in bed with his boss. To make matters worse, he's later carjacked by a struggling, unemployed family-man-turned-petty-thief (Lawrence), and that's when he loses his cool completely. He takes the carjacker hostage and recruits him on a road-trip scheme of revenge against his wife and boss. Plotting to break into his boss's high-security vault, Robbins gets a criminal assist from Lawrence, but they're also on the run from another pair of would-be thieves who trail them to the vault's location. The routine plot is occasionally limp and sluggish, but writer-director Steve Oedekerk (who makes a wacky cameo appearance as a security guard) mines comedy gold during several scenes that detour from the plot for the sake of sheer lunacy. Robbins and Lawrence have great comedic chemistry (if you can tolerate Lawrence's constant profanity), and although the movie ends on a false note with some unlikely turns of fate, it's definitely good for more than a few solid laughs. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

This hugely funny action-comedy hit stars big-screen favorites Martin Lawrence (BAD BOYS) and Tim Robbins (HIGH FIDELITY). Advertising executive Nick Beam (Robbins) has completely bottomed out. His career is a mess, his marriage is on the rocks ... and a fast-talking would-be carjacker (Lawrence) has just jumped into his car! So what does he do? Nick throws common sense out the window and turns the tables on his captor! Soon this mismatched pair speeds off on a comical crime spree that includes holdups, high-speed chases, and revenge! Set to a hot hit soundtrack, NOTHING TO LOSE is another wild comedy success from the creator of ACE VENTURA and THE NUTTY PROFESSOR!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorites January 16, 2000
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Don't pay attention to the amazon.com reviewer, this movie is one of the best comedies ever! The dynamics between Lawrence and Robbins are great and the plot's VERY nice and twisty. If you don't much care for "boyz in da hood" type movies, don't worry - this isn't one. It's just a great comic adventure that'll make you almost fall out of your chair laughing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Laughed 'til I cried October 21, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite comedies. Robbins and Lawrence are a really good team; the "spider-freak-out" dance by Robbins, and the goofy security guard routine by Steve Oedekerk were hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars PLEASE DONT KILL ME FREAKY JASON! April 5, 2007
Format:DVD
THIS IS DEFINITELY TOP TEN FUNNIEST MOVIES I HAVE SEEN! MARTIN LAWRENCE AND TIM ROBBINS WERE WELL MATCHED IN THIS COMEDY. MY FAVORTIES SCENES ARE AS FOLLOW:

1. WHEN NICK AND T. ARE FIGHTING OVER THE CREDIT CARD AND NICK DOES THIS WEIRD ELBOW TO FACE HIT ON T.

2. THE SCENE WITH THE SPIDER AND NICKS SHOE CATCHING ON FIRE AND T CATCHES IT ALL ON CAMERA

3. WHERE T. ACCIDENTLY SHOOTS NICK IN THE ARM( MORE LIKE GRAZE )

4. AND OF COURSE THE SCENE IN THE STORE AND NICK ASKING THE OLD MAN CLERK WHO WAS MORE SCARY

ALL IN ALL GREAT FILM TO HAVE!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mindlessly Hilarious June 26, 2007
Format:DVD
A man comes home early and catches his wife in bed with his boss, just after his boss asked him to take a meeting so he could "get lucky" with her. Having been deeply in love with his, wife the emotional backlash is not insignificant. When he finds himself at gun point in an attempted robbery, the maelstrom that follows makes up the plotline of the movie.

"Nothing to Lose" is nothing of not predictable. Even though I won't mention how it all pans out, anyone could predict it anwyay. Despite that, the movie is still gut-wrenching in its hilarity and zany situations. The scene where Nick asks a store clerk what was scarier, (his cool and calm approach or Terence's loud, profanity pumping approach), was a hoot. Especially when the clerk tried to make Nick feel better about himself.

For a good laugh, this is a hard movie to beat. Tim Robbins is great and Martin Lawrence even manages to be less annoyingly squealy than he normally is. Like other reviewers, I love this movie and have seen it a number of times. Want a good laugh? See this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely hilarious April 29, 2007
Format:DVD
Watching Tim Robbins dance with his shoe on fire while trying to get a spider off of him led me to the hardest I've ever laughed in my life. Martin Lawrence's character's response to it as well as the back ground music made it even funnier. I had tears in my eyes and my side hurt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely funny! December 1, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I'm a fan of Tim Robbins. I saw this at the movies and just had to have it in DVD. The story is a typical buddy film but the chemistry between Robbins and Martin Lawrrence was priceless. The funniest line from Robbins in response to the real spider crawling on his head was, "I'm not up on all this jive talkin' homeboy lingo". This is a must see!
