This is comedy! Sometimes people are offended by stuff like this, but really! How could anybody be offended by silliness like this? Some reviewers found Akroyds "personalities" offensive. I found them amusing as they, of course, should not be taken seriously. It's slapstick, not Ingmar Bergman!
The movie was well paced, and reasonably suspenseful as such a movie that tries to follow in the footsteps of movies like "48 hours" should be.
There's one thing I dislike about this movie, however, and that's Dom DeLouise. He tries his best to ruin this movie, as he tries to ruin every other movie I have ever seen him in. That man simply cannot act! It makes you wonder why he's in so many movies. Does anybody know?
Based on the other reviews I almost didn't watch this, but once again it shows that what's comedy for someone is not necessarily comedy for everyone.
I enjoyed it a lot this late evening, and will probably watch it again, and give it a solid 8.
Possibly because I was positively surprised after reading the other reviews...
