Editorial Reviews

Larry the Cable Guy returns for another comic misadventure as a small town sheriff who unwittingly gets involved in a high profile FBI case. Larry single-handedly "rescues" a sophisticated woman from the men who are actually protecting her. The hilariously mismatched duo must grapple with angry FBI agents, quack doctors and Chicago high society in his funniest, most unpredictable adventure yet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lighted Up Folks! June 19, 2008
After reading the other 4 reviews here, I probably wouldn't have rented this movie. However, I really liked Larry's two previous movies, especially Delta Farce, so I gave this one a quick spin around the block. Besides, any movie that the critics hate, I usually like anyway. I must say that this movie is a little more funny that Delta Farce. It is well-casted and had some great, funny moments. The humor surrounding the FBI agents was pretty good (i.e., an agents whose last name is Orange, so "Agent Orange") and it was great to see Yaphett Kotto after not seeing him in a movie for more than 5 years. Also, seeing Eric Roberts roam around in a jacket with the large letters "PMS" was pretty fair, too. I think you really need to be in a certain mood when taking in a new movie. I started watching this movie thinking it would be terrible, yet came out laughing and wanting to go immediately to the nearest video store to buy it. You just gotta have fun with this one!

2.0 out of 5 stars Rent, do not buy June 23, 2009
My husband and I have seen several of Larry the Cable Guy's comedy routines and find him funny so when we saw this for sale for $4 (yes, brand new!) at the store we thought we should give it a try. It was a shocker to see Jenny McCarthey with a very small roll but kind of glad since she did a really bad job with her hick accent and all she did was walk around in a mini skirt and cut off shirts. Anyway, the script was really bad. There were some funny moments, but for the most part there were just corny jokes constantly that didn't get a laugh out of my husband or I. Surely this movie will be left in our album to collect dust and never see the light of day again. If you are a huge fan or Larry, you may enjoy it but it has total B movie (and maybe even C) written all over it.

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Now I love a lot of his standup comedy jokes, but this guy is just an awful actor. I could not even manage a smile throughout this entire movie, much less a laugh. Worse yet, nobody in the entire movie was any good. Rent, don't buy -- it is just not worth it. I'm not even sure about a rental either. The writers should be shot. The story line is nothing short of amateurish. High school kids could have done better -- a lot better. I should have paid more attention to the other bad reviews -- my mistake.

1.0 out of 5 stars Witless is right September 29, 2012
I gave this movie the beneifit of the doubt because I love slapstick and Larry is very amusing on the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour". Larry did not transition well onto the big screen. When I think of redneck, slapstick, sweet and funny with the underdog as the hero, my mind immediately goes to Jim Varney's 'Ernest P. Worrell', whose shoes Larry or other rednecks or redneck wannabes, will never be able to fill. I can't be the only one who sees Larry's attempts to mirror the lovable hayseed, Ernest. There is the hat, the accent, the clothes, the stand-up comedy then moving over into movies. This movie has too much crude humor and disgusting bathroom jokes and there is no excuse for the racist comments, especially in a movie such as this. The(dare I say it?) plot was weaker than the pulse of a comatose patient.*(And I am not making light of people who have suffered or are suffering through this.) "Witless Protection" has deterred me from watching any of the other Larry movies. I think it's best for him to stick to stand-up comedy, which does work better for him. I'm from the South and I think that Larry does give us a bad name. You can do comedy without making fun of other races, sexual orientation or using over the top sexual comments and bathroom humor(One fart joke will do, sometimes). Is this what has become of America? Have we really sunk so low that every ridiculous script/movie is greelighted just because of a t.v. personalities' previous work? A good stand-up comedian doesn't necessarily translate to a good movie actor. Some people have it. Some don't. Larry doesn't.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where's Ivana Milicevic? June 14, 2008
First off, let me say, this movie was not exactly good. All the performers did what they could, but they couldn't make up for the rotten script. It had it's funny moments, but they couldn't make up for the poorly written script. The only reason I bought this movie was because Ivana Milicevic was in it, and she's my favorite actress, so basically I watch anything that she's in. You can imagine my dissapointment when I noticed that she was left off the DVD cover and replaced by Jenny McCarthy, just because she is a bigger name, and the studio felt that her image would sell more copies of this lackluster movie. I thought that this was incredibly unfair to Ivana Milicevic, who in all reality is the female lead in this movie, not to mention also a better actress, and a Hell of a lot classier and prettier than Jenny McCarthy, (which says a lot because Jenny's a ten in the looks department.) Well that's Coporprate America for you, compromise integrity and decency to make a buck. All in all, Parallel Entertainment Pictures really screwed its star here and they owe her a huge apology. Although this movie is not very good, true (male) fans of Ms. Milicevic's will still enjoy this movie, especially Chapter 14 from 1:14:41 to 1:14:55 (you'll see what I mean), because as in all her movies, she's FRIGGING HOT!!!! (SAMA LIJEPA ZENA!!!).
