Right Up Your Asset
11 June 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Fat small-town sheriff Lawrence Whitney aka "Larry the Cable Guy" (as Larry Stalder) rescues beautiful blonde Ivana Milicevic (as Madeline) from what he believes are kidnappers. She is actually a "Witness Protection" woman waiting to testify against some big oil baddies. Accompanying "Larry" makes it more like "Witless Protection" (get it?) for Ms. Milicevic. This leads to danger and misadventure for the duo. In a smaller appearance than the film's promotional material suggests, Jenny McCarthy shows off her curves. Eric Roberts and Yaphet Kotto are among those trying not to embarrass themselves. "Witless" is too elevated a description.

* Witless Protection (2/22/08) Charles Robert Carner ~ Larry the Cable Guy, Ivana Milicevic, Yaphet Kotto, Eric Roberts
