A very bad match-up of actors
14 December 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This inconceivably bad movie teams up comedian Joe Torry and former LB Brian Bosworth in what can only be described as an action/comedy. It fails, however, in being much of either. The scenes look barely choreographed, the dialogue is insipid, the characters look uncomfortable with one another, the action is stilted, the F/X look twenty years old, the plot has no connection whatsoever with anything resembling reality, and the continuity makes the scenes look like they were put in order by drawing them out of a hat. Of the hundreds of movies that I've watched and rated, this is one of four to receive a rating of "one."
