One of the most awful movie I ever watched.
5 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Do not watch this movie! I really think people who give this movie good ratings must be part of the production or something related because this movie is really really crappy. If I can give it minus rating I would.

First the good:

The concept of the movie is not bad. Funny money, a story where a man pick the wrong briefcase and have some troubles because of it. Not very creative but what the hey, sounds like a classic good old fun movie.

Now the bad:

1. VERY crappy acting. You can SEE that they are acting.

2. VERY crappy dialogues. Some might argue "can you write a better one?" YES I CAN. And so can YOU!

3. VERY crappy editing. I cannot say I can do a better job because I have no editing skill whatsoever but where and when they cut the movie to go to another scene is terrible. Any movie-making undergraduate can make this.

4. Actors that are not in sync with each other. It seems the actors are not casted and they just pick some somewhat popular names.

5. Penelope Miller - She is over-acting and it is very very annoying. This is just personal opinion that I'm sure a lot who watched it will agree.

6. Actually, most of the actors are annoying because you can't really follow the logic of their decision.

This isn't even worth watching if it was free!!! Not even if you love with Chevy Chase!
