Team Cable Guy has made a junky, throwaway comedy that will almost certainly appeal to his fans, for at least the first half hour. Then it runs out of gas. Or jokes. The gas Larry seems to have in no short supply.

Poor Joe Pantoliano, Kid Rock, and Joanna Cassidy get mixed up in the flatulence.

It reeks of desperation, among other things.

That's how awful this picture is. It can't even come up with new diarrhea jokes.

Dumb comedy should be cited for bad taste.

What is surprising and worth noting, though, is the quality of talent that's sadly squandered in comedian Larry the Cable Guy's feature film debut.

It's not a movie; it's a cause for dismay.

More depressing than unfunny.

The film is a toxic stew of stupidity that is so foul and rank that even the most forgiving fans of such corn-pone humor are liable to slink out of the theater.

At least Larry the Cable Guy's brief movie career kept Hollywood's fart-sound proprietors in business. What, you thought an opening shot of his bared plumber's crack was an arbitrary artistic decision? That there's foreshadowin' right there!

Larry isn't an evil movie, but it is a symptom of the problems inherent in gross-out humor.

If the movie's witless, it's also pretty harmless.

The job involves an upcoming cooking contest, a sleazy mayor, a corrupt restaurateur and a supporting cast of characters so ugly, stupid and hygienically revolting that they make Larry seem almost tolerable.

Virtually unwatchable and laugh-free.

Shoddy screenwriting devices simply pass the time for Whitney to sling hillbilly-isms at admirers of his stand-up comedy.

Whenever Larry isn't pensively biting on his chaw, he's barking out obscene one-liners in a guttural, noxious stream of little nasty explosions. He's a greasy, oil-burning joke jalopy.

I'd pay to see "Ron White: Health Inspector and his stupid sidekick Larry," but Larry alone just cain't "Get-er-done."

Unpleasant, uncouth and painfully unfunny, Larry the Cable Guy attempts lowbrow humor with neither the wit of the Farrelly brothers nor the raunchy inventiveness of Keenen Ivory Wayans.

Though some of his one-liners are pretty good, his shtick can't sustain this dutifully scripted comedy.
