While Freeman and Vega are mildly entertaining, the story is too safe and precious to elicit anything more than a passing sense of amusement.

A Hollywood hotshot played by Morgan Freeman, befriends a supermarket cashier just so he can get familiar enough with acting like somebody poor, to get into character for his next movie, and the effort fails miserably.

filled with tiny moments that are instantly amusing, then immediately forgotten when the movie's over.

This slight piece of work, written and directed by Brad ilberling, has some amusing moments and thanks to the great chemistry between Freeman and Vega is perhaps more enjoyable than it should be.

Will go down as tasty as a fast-food guacamole.

[Morgan] Freeman is clearly enjoying himself, but his charisma and heavyweight presence can't quite redeem this featherweight concoction.

It all feels like an insubstantial short that's been stretched to the breaking point.

10 Items or Less is a good-natured but failed experiment in meeting cute -- indie-movie style.

With a less camera-friendly duo, this movie could have been a real dud. Even so, it's nothing much. It does have the great virtue of being only 82 minutes long, though.

It's a shame that at the final checkout, the movie wants to choose paper, but instead goes for plastic.

A film about nothing should at least be interesting, and while Morgan Freeman has done some great things in the past, this is just about his mugging for the camera, and unless you're going to be his stalker, that's not something one should be willing to

This sale is void.

10 Items or Less adds up to zilch.

10 Items or Less is a hybrid of Nacho Libre and Spanglish directed by Moonlight Mile's Brad Silberling, and yes, it's as unbearably cloying and uplifting as that description sounds.
