Totally not Funny
15 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

This film is not very good. Cederic the Entertainer can be quite funny as a stand up comic, and he was hilarious in both "Barbershop" films, but here he is not funny, nor is the rest of the cast. This is a poor attempt to make a spy comedy, and spy comedies are usually not that good to begin with.

The only spy comedies that I have found to be hilarious were the 1983 film "Bullshot" and Leslie Nielson in 1996's "Spy Hard" The old amnesia attempt is used here to string together 90 mins of absolutely no laughs.
