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 with Tim Robbins in it is ever that bad, and with this in mind, I watched Nothing to Lose. I only saw it two hours ago and my memory of it is already starting to dwindle, this is unusual as usually I remember films in all their detail months if not years after seeing them. This just proves how superficial and light weight this comedy is, OR I'm losing my short term memory at an alarming rate. There are good things about this film and there are bad things. One good thing is that its short, light and fluffy and relatively entertaining. The bad thing is its stereotypical, unoriginal - just how many buddy films can we see? and only some of the jokes/laughs work. A lot of the time you can see why the writers thought a scene would be funny, and why certain situations would work but the problem is that most of the scenes just are not funny at all- but I'm sure some people will disagree, depending on your taste in humour. Tim Robbins and Martin Lawrence work well together, but there is no chemistry between them. They don't live up to the standard of Gibson/Glover, Chan/Tucker or Gooding/Cruise where the energy just bounced off one another. The twist in the plot was good although perhaps a little contrived, and the ending you could see coming a mile away. But this film rates higher than it should because of the appearance of Tim Robbins, without him though, this film would have been a dead loss.
