Incredibly dumb, What's the Worst That Could Happen? is complete and utter garbage. Danny DeVito and Martin Lawrence star is a crooked businessman and a petty criminal who get into a no-holds-barred grudge match over a lucky ring. The performances are just awful and the plot makes no sense. Most of the jokes fall flat and the characters aren't that likable. What's the Worst That Could Happen? is a horrible film in which nothing works.

The story focuses on a cat and mouse game between a clever thief Kevin (Martin Lawrence), and a crooked business tycoon Max Fairbanks (Danny DeVito), who turn each other's lives upside down after the former is caught burglarizing the Max's house and instead he gets robbed of his most prized possession: his girlfriend's ring. Now, he will stop at nothing to get the ring that was stolen from him. To help him is the hilarious John Leguizamo and joining them is Bernie Mac as Kevin's uncle. William Fichtner is also unforgettable as the police detective who suspects De Vito of committing insurance fraud.

I actually enjoyed it, although there was too many chacthers, the plot was loose, and it wasn't as funny as you'd expect, but I still liked it, Sort of.

This movie was an absolute waste of time to watch. None of it was even slightly humorous, except for William Fichtner's character, which was a unique and very amusing performance. Otherwise the rest is garbage, and shouldn't be watched unless you are extremely bored or morbidly curious.

I suppose the worst that could happen is good actors are wasted on an uninspired movie like this. Danny Devito and Martin Lawrence can be very funny, but these characters and this script limit them. John Leguizamo and Bernie Mac should round a strong cast, but mostly they go to waste as well. The plot of a homeowner of a burgled house robbing the burglar is one note; nothing of any consequence builds off it. One mildly ironic plot device stretches out over 90 minutes rather than building a more complex situation. Devito's character is not an ideal setup man for Martin Lawrence and his shtick. It is harmless fun, but the sprinkling of cheap light laughs stretches too thin.

One of the many 'OK' movies Martin Lawrence put out after his run of hilarious movies. Not too bad but nothing to get crazy about.

Martin Lawrence (Bad Boys!!) and Danny DeVito (Twins) are not the two people one think will make a movie together, but here they are together and in a funnny movie about a thief who gets robbed by the owner of the house he is trying to rob. It ends well, and fun!

I don't really care for this movie. Danny Devito isn't one of my favorite actors & I'd just rather watch something else.

Martin plays a thief (again) and he robs the wrong guy. The guy ends up stealing a ring from the theif. They fight over a ring. They go back and forth until the end. Pretty simple plot but it is suprisingly very entertaining.

This is one of those movies that I watched all of, hoping that it would become good, and it never did - like Envy with Ben Stiller and Jack Black. "What's the Worst that Could Happen?" ... I saw this movie instead of doing something more productive with my time.

Despite having a talented cast, this "heist comedy" is a drag that doesn't provide many laughs.

What's the Worst That Could Happen? é uma adaptação de Matthew Chapman vagamente baseado no livro de mesmo nome de Donald E. Westlake, dirigido por Sam Weisman. Martin Lawrence é Kevin Caffrey, um ladrão profissional tentando ganhar a vida. Danny DeVito é Max Fairbanks, um rico homem de negócios à beira da ruína financeira. Quando Kevin é preso ao tentar roubar Fairbanks, Fairbanks vira o jogo com o suposto ladrão roubando seu anel premiado. Em uma reviravolta irônica, o milionário que tem tudo isso acaba roubado um ladrão por puro esporte. Mas Kevin e Fairbanks são teimosos, e não vão deixar o assunto morrer. O que se segue é uma batalha de atos vingativo, com cada homem determinado a tirar o anel do outro a qualquer custo. A comedia é incansavelmente sem graça, surpreendentemente curta nos risos. A noção de um bandido sendo roubado durante um assalto, parece engraçado o suficiente, mas algo saiu errado, tragicamente na execução, e o resultado é um filme seco, sem senso de humor, cheio de personagens desagradáveis que ninguém poderia amar ou até mesmo odiar.
