The plot and dialogue are third-rate and no one, not even Mel Gibson -- Glover and Pesci's Lethal Weapon partner -- could save this clunker.

Gone Fishin' is a slapdash, slapstick waste of time -- hook, line and stinker.

It is testimony to the superior acting skills of Joe Pesci and Danny Glover that Gone Fishin' registers more than a blip on the summer movie radar screen.

Film is so formulaic that virtually every plot point is telegraphed way in advance.

This is a film that misses the boat right from the start through an improper mixture of fools.

Like any Pesci outing post-Goodfellas, this can be described with one word; that word is 'hackneyed'.

A mirthless, graceless slapstick comedy with little to recommend it except some Florida scenery -- which, come to think of it, isn't all that scenic.

The saddest thing about this unfunny, misguided motion picture is watching two performers I admire -- Joe Pesci and Danny Glover -- stumble their way through such obviously inferior material.
