David Spade gets a beautiful French girl to fall in love with him. It seems that none of the filmmakers really stopped to think about that part.
26 October 2000 | by (Luoyang, China) – See all my reviews

David Spade is a very funny man, but his brand of comedy gets real old real quick. He admittedly relies largely on his weaknesses to be funny. You know, the sarcasm, the blow-dried hair, the all-around geekiness. Unfortunately, it seems that he never really tried to develop his acting skills. I have laughed myself to tears because of David Spade in his two best movies, Black Sheep and Tommy Boy (in both of which he played virtually that exact same character), but Lost & Found just wasn't amusing to me. Too much reliance on fourth grade humor and not enough of anything new for anything really good to be said of the film.

And what was Sophie Marceau thinking?! She went from playing a significant (although relatively small) role in the spectacular 1995 epic Braveheart to this garbage? She must have been pretty desperate. Sure, she looked good in the movie, but the film itself is totally inconsequential and immediately forgettable.

David Spade revealed in interviews just before the theatrical release of Lost & Found that he was worried about how the public would react to an actor with his iconography actually getting the girl, and frankly, I think he should have thought about that a long time ago. Watching David Spade kiss someone as stunningly beautiful as Sophie Marceau is like watching a junior high school kid make out with a 30 year old woman. Disturbing, to say the least.

The entire film was a jumbled mess of goofy and pointless jokes and bonehead antics, mainly on the part of Spade, as he tries to keep his idiot dog-napping scheme a secret. The gay jokes, the making fun of the foreign guy (whether he deserved it or not), the fact that Spade spends any amount of on-screen time at all running around naked all come together to form a boring comedy that should be blissfully ignored by everyone. Just look at the cover of the movie. David Spade is naked and covering himself with a small dog. This is not something that you want to purposely subject yourself to.
