An amiable but decidedly lukewarm confection geared entirely around the two star turns.

What could have been an interesting and funny period piece under the directorship of original screenwriter Edwards is turned into a tedious, infantile mess by director Benjamin.

It's certainly not a subtle movie, but with memorable performances, ludicrously over-the-top one-liners and amiable zaniness, it qualifies as a lot of fun.

One wishes the only pairing of Clint and Burt were better, but City Heat is still fun.

One of Mr. Benjamin's main contributions to the film is a good-humored buoyancy, even when things are at their most muddled.

In the end, it is all pretty woeful.

Under the direction of last-minute replacement Richard Benjamin, the results are insufferable -- grotesque, chaotic, demoralized.
