Nothing to Lose Reviews
FUNNY! I enjoyed this awkward partnership that made things dangerously hilarious. Putting oil with water only causes separation but if you shake things up you have "Nothing to Lose" right?
This is old-school for me and seeing it now still has me bursting with laughter, not only that but a pretty dramatic situation that intensifies the humor... hoping for the best and laughing at the worst.
You got nothing to do? Put this on... kick back... you got "Nothing To Lose".
Probably one of the better films of 97 actually, a real surprise haha can't stress how surprising it was that this film was good!
Nick Beam: What?
T. Paul: There's a spider on yo head.
Nick Beam: Look, I'm sorry, I'm not up on all this jive talkin', home boy lingo, what's that supposed to mean? "There's a spider on your head"?
T. Paul: It means there's a spider on your motherfuckin' head, man!
Nick Beam: Well get it off! GET IT OFF! GET IT OFF!
T. Paul: I ain't touchin' that shit!
As I write this review, I am watching this movie on television and enjoying it. I have seen it a number of times and find it entertaining enough. It's nothing special, but it has its moments and is perfect for a late night viewing when you've got...nothing...to...lose...
Tim Robbins and Martin Lawrence make the ridiculous team in this familiar buddy movie about an odd pairing forming between to people to hopefully get what they want.
In this case, Robbins' character happens to have witnessed a terrible sight, loses it, and drives off. Lawrence attempts to carjack him, but does not succeed. This results in a strange road trip, where the two eventually bond, and decide to do what they believe is right together; rob Robbins' boss.
Of course this movie is mainly about the chemistry between Lawrence and Robbins and for the most part it works, mainly out of the whole opposites attracting aspect.
John C. McGinley, among others also shows up in a supporting role, showing once again how great of a character actor he is in any part.
It's an entertaining movie for the most part and as I said, very good if you just happen to catch it on TV and decide to stick around.
Nick Beam: Now honestly, which one of us was scarier?
Henry: [Looking at T] He was scarier.
T. Paul: Hah!
Nick Beam: Really? You didn't find what he did as contrived?
Henry: No it was scary.
Nick Beam: What part?
Henry: The 'freeze motherfucker' part was scary and he lead me to believe that if I moved my ass, it might be blown off.
Fave line: You must be really fast..
