Irreverent as ever, Larry The Cable Guy plays a big city health inspector who's happy with his usual beat of greasy spoon diners and low-rent ethnic restaurants. His easygoing life is turned upside-down when he's saddled with a straight-arrow rookie partner (Iris Bahr) and assigned the biggest case of his career: investigating an outbreak of mysterious food poisonings at the city's swankiest restaurants. Infuriating restaurateurs with his bad manners, Larry still manages to charm a sweet, shy waitress (Megyn Price) into a budding romance. But when his unorthodox methods cost him his job, Larry has to go undercover to bring the conspirators to justice and 'Git-R-Done!' Written by

You called me in, sir?
You gotta be kiddin' me. First I lose my promotion to the pissed off crippled feller that's only been here three weeks and now you expect me, a man of my tenure, to work with a dadgum boy?
I'm Amy... Butlin.
So your parents gave you a girly name to toughen you up? I like that.
I've been, uh, very eager to be part of a collaboration ever since I graduated from the academy, I really want to get out on the field and prop...

Comedian Larry the Cable Guy's acting debut, playing a redneck health inspector who, alongside his female partner (who dresses down like a librarian out of a 1950s comedy), ferrets out a conspiracy to destroy fine-dining establishments. Slovenly humor goes back decades, and of course is often very successful, but there may be something deviate about Larry the Cable Guy's sense of humor; it's irrelevant to his core audience--who just want to have a mindless good time with the toilet jokes--but the film's rampant ugliness belies a hatred of people that coats the whole sub-modest enterprise like pond scum. Anyone with a semblance of grace or a modicum of style or good breeding is considered a candidate for the local gay bar (the movie is very fond of putting down "the queers"), while Larry's unattractive co-hort is never allowed to blossom (she's all business, which to Larry means she must be kept in her place, as that of a stereotypical spinster). There's a half-hearted, played-for-jokes romance somewhere in the middle of this wretched picture, but to bring that up is really about as useful as criticizing the witlessness of the entire conception. Audiences high on this kind of low-ball humor don't want profundities or helpful criticism; they only want to see the flies in the food. This movie gives them what they want. NO STARS from ****
