A mundane sitcom with feature pretensions, the kind where the comic 'situation' is simply a coat-rack for hanging a rag-tag assortment of inflated sight gags and telegraphed punch lines.

Spade serves as both star and co-writer of this lame, crass romantic comedy. Most of the jokes he's written fall flat, and his delivery isn't much better.

Nothing but a cynical, astonishingly inept attempt to copy Mary's formula.

Spade's wise-ass persona grows tiresome fast.

It would be difficult to imagine material more wrong for Spade than Lost & Found.

Lost & Found is such a low-class, low-laughs rip-off that it makes "Mary" resemble a Noel Coward comedy of manners!

A love story, but Spade is way too smug to appear the slightest bit sincere in his scenes with Marceau for it to work at all on that level.

It's only intermittently funny.

Spade is uncomfortably awkward as a romantic lead -- he's better employed in supporting comic roles.

The toilet humor and There's Something About Mary dog joke retreads lead Lost astray.

Funny for 15 minutes and then fades into mean-spirited cruelty and stupidity.

anyone who went to the movies last summer will recognize 'Lost' for what it is: a diluted variation on 'There's Something About Mary.'

Spade may be a professional when it comes to mugging for the camera, but he can't save this thing.

Love that cute-as-a-button cairn terrier, but the rest of the movie really stinks!

David Spade's exuberant efforts are wasted!

The whole thing collapses into a tries-too-hard comedy without a distinct identity.

Audience Reviews for Lost and Found

One of the last movies where we can see Spade playing a normal guy and actually believe it. This films is cute and quirky, but also has a nice combination of comedy that makes it very funny and entertaining to watch. As a big fan of Spade, I loved this movie. The overall story is the same as any romantic comedy, so I didn't rate it higher, but truthfully I don't care about that. If you love Spade as much as I do, you have to see this movie!

A few good gags and entertaining, don't change how the film is, cliche and silly.
