Nick drives past a sign that reads "Welcome to Arizona" but the desert landscape is clearly Mojave not Sonoran. See more »
Where do I start? It's not you. Well actually it is you. Look, I'm just not... I'm not attracted to you anymore. I need space. You kinda... you kinda gross me out. In the beginning it was different. In the beginning, you were better. But then I got to know you real well, and I came to realize... that you're a fat idiot.

After the credits are finished, a mailman brings a letter to the hillbilly whose gas station was robbed. The letter is marked "Hillbilly Motherfucker", just as T. called him in the movie. Inside is a few hundred dollars cash. In the cut version this is changed to "Hillbilly at the gas station". See more »
'Nothing to Lose' tries to be a few movies. Buddy Movie, Fish Out of Water Movie, Road Movie, Mistaken Identity Movie and Heist Movie. And in not settling for one it falls short of greatness. But that does not mean it's not fun.
The writer-director, Steve Oedekerk, is clearly a fan of movies , as he tries a bit of everything
The film stars Tim Robbins as Nick Beam, a corporate executive who comes home one afternoon to find his wife (Kelly Preston) in bed with another man. He believes it to be his boss. In a daze Nick drives off, where he is carjacked by a loud Martin Lawrence.
There are good moments. And some big laughs, some supporting actors get some good laughs too.
Rebecca Gayheart is lovely to look at, and stands out, while John C. McGinley is worthy of note too, and is reliable as always.
Predictably, spoils things a bit, as at the end of "Nothing to Lose'' everything falls nicely into place.
