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 »

Goofs

In the courtroom, Max is wearing two rings; his wedding band which the robbers supposedly just stole, and the ring the robbers wanted to steal. See more »

tough movie to rate/review
13 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WTWTCH is a genuinely funny film. In particular, Lawrence and Leguizamo have many hilarious moments. I started watching it even though the RT scores on dtv were low, but it never seems to take long for Martin to get my attention and give one of his movies a chance like I did this one. SOmetimes they've been surprisingly watchable(Blue Streak, Nothing to Lose), and sometimes they haven't(Black Knight, Death at a Funeral).

The film isn't great, but it does seem to throw out a genuinely funny scene about every 15 minutes.

The problems with the film lie in the plot, or the lack of a plot. I know we here this a lot in reviews, but this film falls right there with Expendables 2 for most 'acceptable' film(not good mind you) that has ABSOLUTELY ZERO PLOT. Even if you try to discern a plot - the characters within just don't fit in it.

The films ending is dreadful, and completely undermines and belittles what little plot there might have been. You really ask yourself what in the world the film was all about when it's over.

I'm stuck between 4 and 5, but I'd watch it again just for some of the funny moments, so I'm going with the latter.

I still can't recommend it and look in someone's eye's while doing so, and I won't do it on-screen either.

If you think Martin is hilarious, then rent or watch this knowing that you'll get those occasional, funny moments, and little else.

48/100
