Basic but funny, 21 July 2002
Author: bob the moo from United Kingdom

Jewel thief Miles Logan and his gang are stealing a large diamond in LA. After the robbery Logan is double crossed by another thief, Deacon, but gets away when the police arrive. He stashed the diamond but is sent to jail. When he is released he returns to where he hid the diamond to find it is a police station. He pretends to be a cop to get access but he is partnered with rookie Carlson and sent out to do jobs. However Deacon is also searching for the diamond and Logan must also take care of him as he tries to find the jewel and solve crimes.

I gotta admit that I hate Lawrence – his comedies are always sitcom level and he is like a sub-par Eddie Murphy. Sadly I still find his clowning funny! I can't explain it. Here the plot is no more than an excuse for many funny scenes with all the action brought together in a `dramatic' climax! However it is funny – even if it's very straightforward. I imagine that if you hat Lawrence then you'll hate this but if you're in the mood for a simple no-brain comedy then you can rely on Lawrence to deliver just that.

He actually quite good here – even if he's the same in every film he does the same shtick. It's also good to see Luke Wilson in it – even if he's got a role that is really beneath his talents, although Greene is good. Really it's Lawrence's show and he does well but if you hate him then you'll hate this no matter what.

Overall if you want a silly no-brain comedy then this is worth a shot, but if Lawrence annoys you then don't even bother.
