Trivia

Martin Lawrence, when walking after the uncomfortable, frozen stance he took on the stairs as to not set off the laser, says: "I can't feel my ass!" In Nothing to Lose (1997), he limped out of Tim Robbins' car, whining: "My ass fell asleep! My ass fell asleep!" See more »

Hilarious!
15 July 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately, a lot of people seem to give this movie lousy reviews, and I can't figure out why. Both Martin Lawrence and Danny DeVito are totally hilarious, and this entire film is packed with great jokes. Also, a great supporting part by William Fichtner as the dog-loving Detective Alex Tardio, a must-see for any fans of his. The rest of the cast is great too, as is the soundtrack. DeVito and Lawrence are a great pair, and the way they battle with witty comments makes this movie 10 times better, as if it wasn't funny enough already. What's The Worst That Could Happen? is definitely watchable again and again. One of my very favorites. Love it!!!
