This is one of the movies that I dont see why people hate it. It was too me a funny movie. Maybe it's the fact im a fan of the talent involved with this movie. John Candy is good like usual. Eugene Levy is good as usual. Meg ryan looks good.. :D what? Was this supposed to be the godfather? no. its just fun, and funny movie. It's too me a good movie. But since I am trying(and failing) to add more meat to these reviews i post here's the plot outline i stole from imdb. heheh
Frank Dooley is an ex-cop, thrown out of the force after being framed by corrupt colleagues. Herman Kane is an out of work attorney who quit because he lost his nerve. Both men turn to a private security firm to find employment, but everything goes quickly wrong when the first warehouse they guard gets robbed! Dooley and Kane suspect foul-play, and there's something fishy about the security firm's union too. Our two heroes decide to investigate, and uncover intrigue and conspiracy, with only their ingenuity and resourcefulness keeping them alive
Thanks to Simon N for that plot summary. It's a decent plot, I still cant see whats so bad about this movie. Oh no. theres one scene that might offened people but im not going to get into how stupid i think getting offened by a movie is: but that scene is when candy and levy go into this sex store and stuff happened. I wont ruin it because that's probably the funniest part of this funny movie. 7/10 or 70%
