Storyline

A lifelong womanizer (Doug 'Dawg' Munford, played by 'Denis Leary') learns upon his grandmother's death that he stands to inherit her full fortune - that he was unaware she had accrued - pending his fulfillment of conditions set forth in her last will & testament, according to her strikingly beautiful, savvy attorney ('Anna Lockheart', played by Elizabeth Hurley), who would be charged with accompanying him on his journey in order to ensure he properly & honestly accomplishes the "mission", which is to locate and elicit forgiveness from 1 dozen of his former conquests, if he chooses to accept it. Bickering, adventure, road trip, and a few surprises ensue featuring lawyer & heir as they encounter an eclectic array of interesting characters from his past, eventually leading to an opportunity for him to reflect on his lifestyle.

Denis - what happened? (2 out of 10 stars)
22 November 2004 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

It pains me also to say so, since I too appreciate Leary's humour, but this movie was not funny or entertaining at all. Hasting's script and the resulting movie were terrible. In fact, the only thing positive about this movie was that Leary appeared in it. In other words, if he just ate at the funeral's buffet making comments about the grieving chicks the movie would have been just as fulfilling.

This general story idea wrapped around a true Leary character had potential to be good and funny despite following the common Hollywood formula: unsuspecting undeserving egoist must become somewhat changed to get a reward. But, unfortunately the movie was overly predictable and predicated on a stupid task: get a dozen ex-girlfriends to forgive him. ... Most of them still liked him, and banged him again, which made me think he was more of a stud than an a**hole.

Someone seemed to forget that Leary is best playing an a**hole - after all he did write and produce the song proclaiming himself so - and that this script was supposed to be about one. There were so many opportunities to capitalize on his true to life jerk humour that were slap-sickish instead. This is just plain terrible writing. I think given the time Leary could've made this stupid script funny.

I watched the whole thing waiting and waiting, either for Leary to be funny or Hurly to get naked but to no avail. I'm going to watch No Cure For Cancer again to try and forgive Leary for being involved in this waste of a project.
