Our Score
This is possibly the worst experience that could happen inside a cinema. Trite, unfunny and shockingly mediocre, one wonders what lead actors Danny DeVito and Martin Lawrence could have been thinking. Lawrence is a professional thief who steals his way into the affections of sweet English actress, Carmen Ejogo. But her attempts to straighten him out go belly up when he robs crooked mogul DeVito and starts a vendetta that puts each actor at the end of a very large ego bone. Both characters are so immoral and despicable, you wish they'd simply consume each other instead of subjecting the audience to this silly series of one-upmanship gags.


A crook vows to get revenge on the billionaire who turned him in to the police and claimed his lucky ring - but the pair find themselves in an out-of-control spiral of vengeance as their attempts to outwit each other become ever more extreme. Crime comedy, starring Martin Lawrence, Danny DeVito and John Leguizamo.
