Editorial Reviews

Possession may be 9/10 of the law but payback is everything to the lawless. Martin Lawrence and Danny DeVito escalate a battle of egosand a battalion of laughsto epic proportions in this fast-paced joke-fest that takes low-down behavior to hilarious new heights! Co-starring John Leguizamo (Moulin Rouge), Glenne Headly (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), William Fichtner (Pearl Harbor), Bernie Mac (The Original Kings of Comedy), Carmen Ejogo (The Avengers), Larry Miller (The Nutty Professor II) and Nora Dunn (Three Kings), this laugh-out-loud comedy proves that "the worst that could happen is missing this film" (Jeffrey Lyons)! Caught red-handed trying to rob a mansion, Kevin Caffery (Lawrence) leaves empty-handed when the house's owner, ruthless billionaire Max Fairbanks (DeVito), spies Kevin's "lucky" ring and claims it as his own!Out of jail and out of his mind with rage, Kevin will do anything to get the ring back. But Max considers it his most cleverly won possession and will do anything to keep it! With battle lines drawn and no risk too great, these two set out to ruin each other's lives and both succeed admirably!

3.0 out of 5 stars AN ANSWER TO THE QUESTION IT ITSELF POSES. May 30, 2004
Starts out with good timing, and some decent laughable banter from Martin Lawrence. Nothing laugh out loud funny but pleasantly amusing schtick. The central premise is actually quite interesting (billionaire stealing a ring from a petty robber etc), but the film fails to take advantage of it, choosing instead to lapse into numerous plot-holes, cliches and mind-bending stupidity. There's even a gay, dog-loving detective who adds fart humor to the mix. And all this leads to a climax that takes a quantum leap of logic and rationality. Perhaps a worthy rental if you're into slapstick, but overall a skippable fare.

1.0 out of 5 stars Formula Martin Lawrence comedy November 12, 2002
By A Customer
Film students, listen up: the formula for a typical Martin Lawrence film goes something like this. Find a comedy script and remove anything that smacks of cleverness and genuine humor - we don't want to upstage Lawrence's own 'natural ability' to provide laughs simply by showing up and looking cross-eyed into the camera. Add to the cast a sexy black woman/love interest who in real life wouldn't give Lawrenece himself or the character he's playing the time of day. Create lots of scenes that defy any semblance of reality and let Lawrence mug his way through with half-assed imitations of Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and just about any other black comedian you can mention.
Speaking of which, I can't imagine Bernie Mac actually found this script funny enough to make an appearance. Believe me, you won't either. Everyone's obviously in it for an easy paycheck. Do yourself a favor and don't encourage them any further.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst that could happen? Watching this film. February 24, 2005
Five minutes in, I was cringing. Fifteen minutes in, I was in pain. It rates one star because the cinematography, lighting, sound, and other techical crews did competent work -- and because it's the lowest rating on the form.

If you love a good comedy caper, read the Donald Westlake book this atrocity was based on. It's clever, thrilling and hilarious -- everything the movie ain't. If you *must* get your comedy capers in movie form, get The Hot Rock instead. On the other hand, if your idea of brilliant humor is the stuff that cracks up 12-year-olds when they think they're being naughty, hey, this may be right up your alley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, very funny October 30, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
These two guys are good for alot of laughs, the supporting cast are great too. I hope they will do more films together in the future.
The plot is one thief robbing the other, the difference is, one is a dirty business man, and a dirt-bag all day long, the other does his deal at night,and is lovable during the day. The way it plays out, its hard to decide who you want to cheer

2.0 out of 5 stars The worst did happen...this movie! April 30, 2002
By Ei
This movie doesn't deserve to much time from me. The best part about this movies is BOSTON. It was filmed in Boston, and as a life time Massachusetts resident, I loved seeing our fair city in yet, another of the handful of films actually filmed here.
It is a city that looks beautiful on film.
Lawrence is playing his usual role of the petty thief who dances and talks way through the film. ....
I do usually like Danny Devito, but I don't know what he was thinking here. His character, Max, has a few funny moments, ....
Lawrence robs Devito, and Devito is in the house when it happens. He steals the ring Lawrence is wearing. The rest of the movie is Lawrence trying to get the ring back.
This movie didn't make me laugh much. When I was laughing, it was when Detective Tardio was on screen. What a hoot! William Fichtner plays him, and he is weird! really weird. At first, I didn't know what the heck his character was for, but I realize now that the movie needed him. He was the best that happened...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favorite movies January 7, 2013
By Jeanne
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For some reason I have always loved this movie. It's a little quirky with a rather silly plotline, I think, but I have always enjoyed watching it again and again.
I'm sure it's the actors that keep pulling me back.
