It's impossible to dislike Paul Hogan, and almost as hard to like his movies. They're as goodhearted as they are simple-minded.

Hogan should hang up his spurs until a truly original impulse comes along.

The film has no internal comic rhythm to match its faltering sense of humor. Much of the time, it plods along like a mediocre conventional western.

Politically incorrect jokes (endlessly) about hearing impaired (Gooding) make for tasteless flick.

Lightning Jack feels like a film you might stumble across late at night on the USA Network.

The relationship between Ben and Jack never really develops any warmth or resonance, mainly because it seems never to have been thought through.

It's a long slow trek from gag to gag.

A good-natured, if laconic, oater that rides along nicely on the screen persona of writer/actor Paul Hogan.
