You'll chuckle at least once during the proceedings -- but probably not much more than that.

An occasionally savvy farce that suffers from attention deficit disorder.

Martin & Orloff might have worked as a 10-minute sketch, but Lawrence Blume's low-budget feature quickly wears thin.

A more accurate title: Measly & Awful.

While there are some inspired moments of merriment, the overall product leaves much to be desired.

Despite lightning cameos by Tina Fey and dependably hilarious David Cross, this extended riff on an Analyze This theme flogs each jolting gag into SNL-style unconsciousness.

Suffocated by self-conscious absurdism, this in-joke of a movie is moribund.

Unless you find kicks in the groin hilarious, the lunacy here is considerably more tired than inspired.

One of the few films you could call wildly uneven and the filmmakers would still consider it a compliment.

Sure, it's not much more than a 'sketch after sketch' presentation, but one can forgive an aimless narrative when the gags are this unexpectedly funny.

The movie and its players have a natural, matter-of-fact sense of comedy. It doesn't rub our faces in its jokes.

Even though this film swings for the fences but doesn't quite connect, Martin and Orloff is still a solid double off the wall.

Provides a fairly steady series of laughs thanks to the fully committed performances by the two stars and the sheer brazenness of its humor.

The saw about the shrink who's crazier than his patient gets a workout here, but it's given a likable spin by both of the leads.

A refreshing, original departure from junk like Starsky & Hutch.

Grows on you, as does stress-inducing, carefree Orloff on bemused Martin.
