Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Todd Kristel
If you're looking for a movie that bears a strong resemblance to the old TV show, an original comedy that offers a clever plot and witty dialogue, or a tightly constructed spy film that provides genuine thrills while also tickling your funny bone, then you've come to the wrong place. Unfortunately, this film doesn't offer much except the rapport between Eddie Murphy and Owen Wilson. The action sequences are pedestrian and generally quite boring, the hackneyed plot is flimsy even by action-comedy standards (although some viewers may enjoy spotting the continuity errors), Famke Janssen and Malcolm McDowell are wasted in their respective roles, and the movie doesn't even offer its fair share of good one liners. Nonetheless, the banter between Murphy and Wilson, who don't play characters so much as variations on their comedic personae, is entertaining. The two actors seem to enjoy feeding off each other and provide most of the film's energy. It's not enough to make this a good film, but it may be enough if you're just looking for an undemanding popcorn movie that's worth an occasional chuckle.
San Francisco Chronicle
A loose, lighthearted romp that's a notch above the usual buddy comedies. --Carla Meyer

A smart but nerdy spy (played by Owen Wilson) must team up with a boxing champion (played by Eddie Murphy) to recover a stealth fighter plane that is stolen by a crooked, rich businessman (played by Malcolm MacDowell). Meanwhile, the heroes work together with a mysterious, sexy spy (played by Famke Janssen). I had high hopes when I started watching this movie because the trailer made it seem like it would a good action-comedy. Boy was I disappointed! This movie is not funny, the actions sequences are dull and boring, and the dialogue is just plain stupid!! I kept looking at my watch wondering when this movie would end. My friends and I had one word to describe this movie after we watched it: TURKEY! It could have been a much, much better movie, considering the talented cast. I was really disappointed. Don't waste your time and money on this movie.

I don't even need to write a review because all I'm going to say about it is not even close to nice.

I didn't bother watching the rest of it. Acyually, I wish I never rented it. It's so terrible, it should be along side with the worst movie of all time, Gigli.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I can't see why some people would bother to see this movie. I only saw half of it and got bored. This movie is the second worst film next to Gigli.

I, for one, actually found this movie pretty entertaining. I had bought it a while ago, but had only ever seen part of it, but then I sat down recently and gave it a watch through, and I actually enjoyed it. In some ways, it reminded me of certain titles like the Rush Hours and Shanghai Noon & Knights...except that it was a spy story instead, and instead of Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson/Chris Tucker, it was Owen Wilson and the ever so hillarious Eddie Murphy. I actually thought it had a few pretty decent scenes of action, and I found myself laughing frequently in it, especially at Eddie Murphy. He is so funny. Would I call this movie great? No, but I did find it enjoy it and found it rather amusing. I myself would actually recommend this one...though not over the Rush Hours or the Shanghai's though...because I was more entertained by those, but yeah...I don't know why this movie was so hated. I like it.
