There’s the great and compelling movie you’d rush to theaters to see immediately. Then there is the mediocre one that sparks a hint of interest, but you’d rather wait to see it when it’s released on video. And then there is the rather pathetic movie that you’d only watch if you were completely bored, had nothing better to do, and it just happened to be airing on cable TV. Well, this cat and mouse hodgepodge by director Reginald Hudlin is one of those cable TV losers. Matthew Perry stars as the Chandler Bing of James Bondian process servers whose wannabe suave and intensity is as real and convincing as Pamela Anderson’s breasts. However, the Friend’s performance is at least more forgiving than the exceedingly bouncy and bubbly trophy wife of an adulterous cattle rancher, played by Elizabeth Hurley, who needs her own set of pompoms to make her overzealous cheerleader-esque personality complete. Together the two misfits team up and become entangled in juvenile competitions, monster truck rallies and impotent bulls as they play Who Can Deliver the Divorce Papers First. Writing duo Jay Scherick and David Ronn collaborate on the screenplay for I Spy, due out later this year, which does not bode well for that TV series adaptation after the likes of this big screen disaster.
