Lost and Found Reviews

Top Critic

Globe and Mail

A mundane sitcom with feature pretensions, the kind where the comic 'situation' is simply a coat-rack for hanging a rag-tag assortment of inflated sight gags and telegraphed punch lines.

Spade serves as both star and co-writer of this lame, crass romantic comedy. Most of the jokes he's written fall flat, and his delivery isn't much better.

Nothing but a cynical, astonishingly inept attempt to copy Mary's formula.

It makes Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls seem like Shakespeare in Love.

Spade's wise-ass persona grows tiresome fast.

There's not enough story to get you interested in Dylan's plight and not enough laughs to compensate for the lack of a story.

Lost & Found is such a low-class, low-laughs rip-off that it makes "Mary" resemble a Noel Coward comedy of manners!

Will soon be lost on the trash-heap of failed comedies.

The picture shamelessly steals gags from the vastly superior There's Something About Mary.

There's precious little to boogie about in Lost & Found!

A movie about characters of limited intelligence, who wander through the lonely wastes of ancient and boring formulas.

Maybe Adam Sandler isn't so bad after all.

Why was the sight of scrawny Woody Allen kissing pretty Diane Keaton never revolting, while scrawny David Spade kissing beautiful Sophie Marceau in Lost & Found is the creepiest cinematic sight of the year?

If the standards for feature films starring former Saturday Night Live cast members weren't already so low, you could be forgiven for thinking Lost & Found was dragging them down.

It would be difficult to imagine material more wrong for Spade than Lost & Found.

Can't decide whether it wants to charm or gross out its audience!

Too many of the jokes are predictable, and, as a result, not especially funny.

A rancid little nothing of a movie!
