A bumpy buddy romp that's mildly winning thanks to its stars.

Audience Reviews for Nothing to Lose


04/09/2011 (ONLINE)

FUNNY! I enjoyed this awkward partnership that made things dangerously hilarious. Putting oil with water only causes separation but if you shake things up you have "Nothing to Lose" right?

This is old-school for me and seeing it now still has me bursting with laughter, not only that but a pretty dramatic situation that intensifies the humor... hoping for the best and laughing at the worst.

You got nothing to do? Put this on... kick back... you got "Nothing To Lose".

Hilarious. Tim Robbins and Martin Lawerence make a surprisingly brilliant comedy act. Must see film!

Bethany Murphy

Doesn't even deserve half of a star.
