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!

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

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.

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.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say I think this is the best film either Tim Robbins or Martin Lawrence have ever done. Kiss-ass corporate drone Nick Beam thinks he has it all - and he does - until he finds his wife in bed with another man, spins out of control and takes a small-time carjacker on the ride of his life. I love this film despite the nasty language, but I wish the writer had had some class and written the script without it. It would still tell a ROCKIN' good story about two men who, despite being down on their luck, still have a lot to lose and finally get smart enough to know it. Special props to Steve Oudekerk for the excellent script and direction (watch for him as a dancing, lip-synching security guard). CAUTION: Some may find this film's language and violence disturbing.

Before Hollywood got it's hands on him, Martin Lawrence was an outrageous and hilarious stand-up comedian. In recent years, he was been toned down, in an effort to turn him into another Will Smith, but back in the day, there were few who were as funny or extreme as Martin Lawrence. Nothing To Lose is a great example of just how good, Lawrence was during his prime. The story follows Nick Beam, (Tim Robbins) a man who has seen something that no man should ever see. Devastated and downtrodden, Beam drops everything and goes for a drive, when a street thug named T, (Martin Lawrence) puts a gun in his face and tries to take his car. Beam's responds by laughing and saying, "Boy did you pick the wrong guy on the wrong day," and then he floors it, taking us into an improbably, but terrific adventure. Ever since his portrayal of Andy Dufresne in The Shawshank Redemption, Tim Robbins has been tight-cased into these high profile dramatic roles, making it hard to remember that he actually got his start doing comedy. The lanky, loveable, anger-crazed man he plays in this film is absolutely hysterical. The chemistry between Robbins and Lawrence is what makes this film work. They both have a distinct form of comedy that you wouldn't expect to work as well as it does, but I can say without hesitation that this under the radar comedy is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a very long time.

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!

So funny. Tim Robbins thinks his wife is in bed with his boss. He get's bent out of shape. Get's in his car and drives off, he is at a red light and Martin Lawrence tries to rob him. Robbins get's mad and takes Lawrence on a ride neither one of them will forget. Some of the things that happen are so funny. There is a lot of F words, but Lawrence is known for that. Why , I don't really understand. Bill Cosby was funny and he was not foul mouth. Go figure. Still a very funny movie.

This is a classic in our home. Martin Lawrence is his own brand of comedy with his facial expressions and body language, he is easy to read and fluent in sarcasm. Tim Robbins has a sly boyish smile that draws you in and makes you feel like family. He doesn't have to work hard to be a goofball, his tall lanky frame gives him the extra edge. When these two team up by accident in this fast paced comedy, you are sure to laugh your face off! I have watched this movie at least 30 times and still laugh every time. If you're having a bad day, this is the movie you want to watch to turn that day around. Family friendly for teenagers on up. Language and one suggestive scene.

While it is dated and has clichés this film is still hilarious. A man who suspects his wife of infidelity kidnaps a would be carjacker and they go on a crime spree. With John C. McGinley and others I sure got a kick out of this movie especially the Scat Man bit where Tim Robbins' shoe catch on fire.

This release doesn't do this film justice. A LaserDisc sourced fiom print that isn't anamorphically enhanced and a mere theatrical trailer. No deleted scenes and no commentary. I'm hoping this eventually comes out on Blu-Ray disc.
