In a desperate attempt to save director Sam Weisman's screwball comedy catastrophe, Martin Lawrence delivers his typical loose-lipped shtick while Danny DeVito reprises his money-grubbing character from the 1986 film Ruthless People. Lawrence plays an amateur robber who becomes the laughingstock of the underworld when his not-so-lucky ring is stolen by the cash cow clinger he is trying to ransack. This unfortunately sets off one ludicrous cat-and-mouse plot twist after another, which eventually fizzles down to a far-fetched finale of bribery, public scandal and debauchery. Involved are a sex-crazed soothsayer (Glenne Headly), a multilingual partner in crime (John Leguizamo) and a David Bowie lookalike as a flamboyant detective under caked mascara and a ratted wig (William Fichtner). This otherwise failed film does succeed in one respect, by becoming the answer to its own interrogative title.
