It's sad to watch Yaphet Kotto, as the shady fed, clothesline the stereotypical Muslim motel owner who's already been threatened by Larry with a trip to Gitmo.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
Witless, lowbrow fun is the signature of this so-so comedy with Larry the Cable Guy in fine fat form as a country bumpkin deputy sheriff with delusions of grander than smalltown cop
The movie doesn't even have the common decency to be under 90 minutes. What a bore.
| Original Score: .5/4
I've got an idea for Larry the Cable Guy's next dumb movie. Maybe the lowbrow bumbler with the big heart and even bigger beer gut could play, oh I don't know, a cable guy?
| Original Score: 1.5/4
During the last part of this wacky comedy, it loses the amusing push-pull intimacy between its 'odd-couple' protagonists.
From this kind of witlessness, the only protection is not to see it.
Gratuitous support-our-troops iconography and post-9/11 paranoia permeate a harebrained plot.
| Original Score: 1/6
Merely an excuse for the viewer to delight in the hilarity generated by Mr. Cable Guy breaking wind, vomiting, producing various gastric noises, etc.
| Original Score: .5/5
Ranting about Witless Protection's political incorrectness -- not to mention its general stupidity -- would be a waste of breath. Even so, the movie is breathtakingly offensive at times.
Larry The Cable Guy is a cancerous boil on the ass of comedy, but it's still sort of shocking how little effort he puts into his movies.
| Original Score: F
It's the audience that deserves Protection from this Witless Larry the Cable Guy vehicle.
The otherwise genial Witless Protection scrapes bottom whenever a black person or an Asian or an Arab is wheeled on for just-kiddin' laughs.
| Original Score: 1/4
You have what might very well be the worst movie of 2008. And 2009. And probably 2010, too. Did we fail to mention the exploding farts?
In Witless Protection, Larry the Cable Guy plays a small-town deputy, fantasizing about becoming an F.B.I. agent. Sitcom wackiness ensues.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Makes his previous effort, Delta Farce, seem a classic by comparison.
One can only hope that Witless Protection is targeted at a vanishing species of American Neanderthal. In the meantime, perhaps Larry and his accomplices at Lionsgate could take some sensitivity traning.
Maybe there are only two kinds of people in this world. Those who think Larry the Cable Guy is funny, and those who do not. I am in the latter camp.
The nastiest and silliest of Larry the Cable Guide big-screen vehicles, Witless Protection, the formulaic road flick, is Witless Comedy par excellence.
