When a man (Robbins) believes he has discovered that his wife is having an affair with his boss, it sets off a chain reaction of events. First he wanders into a ghetto where a robber (Lawrence) tries to take his money at gunpoint, but instead sets a wild ride from California to Arizona. The two eventually become reluctant friends. Discussing robbery techniques, they decide to get back at the boss by robbing an office safe containing hundreds of thousands of dollars. Life is further complicated by another pair of robbers who chase the first two for infringing on their territory. Written by

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 »
I used to think the Eddie Murphy movies with the black man/white man partners were the best. At least until I seen this movie. Whoever casted Tim and Martin together, made an excellent choice. Not only are they completely different in their appearances (tall white guy and a short black dude), financial status, outlook on life, but they learn to gain a common ground. I laughed from beginning to end and have loaned out the movie to all my close friends. The misunderstandings in the flick are hilarious. Talk about robbing the wrong guy at the wrong time. The desert scene with the shoes on fire and the Scatman song playing in the background is one of the funniest moments I've ever seen. (I almost wet myself laughing) It's one of those movies where you don't know what's going to happen next. When a guy's down on his luck and all goes wrong, he really has "Nothing to Lose." When is the Nothing to Lose two coming out?
