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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

The picture shamelessly steals gags from the vastly superior There's Something About Mary.

Maybe Adam Sandler isn't so bad after all.

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

There's not enough story to get you interested in Dylan's plight and not enough laughs to compensate for the lack of a story.

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

It makes Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls seem like Shakespeare in Love.

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

Spade's wise-ass persona grows tiresome fast.

Can't decide whether it wants to charm or gross out its audience!

David Spade's exuberant efforts are wasted!

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