    Starts out with good timing, and some decent laughable banter from Martin Lawrence. Nothing laugh out loud funny but pleasantly amusing schtick. The central premise is actually quite interesting (billionaire stealing a ring from a petty robber etc), but the film fails to take advantage of it, choosing instead to lapse into numerous plot-holes, cliches and mind-bending stupidity. There’s even a gay, dog-loving detective who adds fart humor to the mix. And all this leads to a climax that takes a quantum leap of logic and rationality. Perhaps a worthy rental if you’re into slapstick, but overall a skippable fare.

    Five minutes in, I was cringing. Fifteen minutes in, I was in pain. It rates one star because the cinematography, lighting, sound, and other techical crews did competent work — and because it’s the lowest rating on the form.

    If you love a good comedy caper, read the Donald Westlake book this atrocity was based on. It’s clever, thrilling and hilarious — everything the movie ain’t. If you *must* get your comedy capers in movie form, get The Hot Rock instead. On the other hand, if your idea of brilliant humor is the stuff that cracks up 12-year-olds when they think they’re being naughty, hey, this may be right up your alley.

    Formula Martin Lawrence comedy, November 12, 2002
    By A Customer
    This review is from: What’s the Worst That Could Happen? (Special Edition) (DVD)
    Film students, listen up: the formula for a typical Martin Lawrence film goes something like this. Find a comedy script and remove anything that smacks of cleverness and genuine humor – we don’t want to upstage Lawrence’s own ‘natural ability’ to provide laughs simply by showing up and looking cross-eyed into the camera. Add to the cast a sexy black woman/love interest who in real life wouldn’t give Lawrenece himself or the character he’s playing the time of day. Create lots of scenes that defy any semblance of reality and let Lawrence mug his way through with half-assed imitations of Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and just about any other black comedian you can mention.
    Speaking of which, I can’t imagine Bernie Mac actually found this script funny enough to make an appearance. Believe me, you won’t either. Everyone’s obviously in it for an easy paycheck. Do yourself a favor and don’t encourage them any further.
