Goldie Hawn gives a performance which more than makes up for some of the short comings of this cliched comedy. Hawn is laugh out loud funny in this film as the spoiled lawyer for which she was perfectly cast, and it is one of the funniest roles I have seen her in. The scene where she is driving around using Mel Gibsons foot as the gas pedal is hilarious, and again when she is being chased by chimps, I found myself in hysterics. Surprising, considering I'm not usually a fan of this kind of comedy.
Sometimes the laughs are few and far between, and this is pretty much your average run of the mill film where someone is on the run to prove their innocence, despite this there is something endearing about it. There is no doubt Goldie is that endearing quality, backed up by Gibson, who to his credit gives a good performance, and a script which is relatively original. If your fan of Ms Hawn, or if your just looking for a laugh without much thought then I would recommend this film. 8 out of 10
