Cheap comedy
16 November 2013 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

There is one good joke with chainsaw here. Every other joke here is completely lame. "Why me" is a cheap comedy full of forced humor and one that pretends to have some charm. The story is something that would fit in one of the "Police academy" sequels.

The good thing about this movie is nice music and the fact it's rather short . "WM" is obviously a farce and not a funny one. The dialogues pretend to be clever and the twists aren't surprising. You can see the punchline of most jokes long before it comes. It's just a cheap manufactured generic comedy from Hollywood for very unambitious audience.

Christopher Lambert ("The Highlander") isn't too good actor , but he's watchable here . Christopher Lloyd ("Back to the future") is always fun, even if the movie stinks like this one. J.T.Walsh is nice as the asshole commissioner.

If you're looking for good action or heist comedy go somewhere else . I give it 2/10.
