The movie is neither here nor there plot-wise and needs some better female characters-ladycops, anyone?-but coasts merrily along on Tatum and Hill's tremendous chemistry and charm. Pointless? Yes. Fun? The most.
Despite some inevitable lulls, several scenes are as consistently funny as anything we've seen for years. And, like Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in last year's The Heat, the dialogue between the two leads makes up for the holes in the plot.
While this film is dominated by vulgar, slapstick humor, it is not exactly brain dead. There is a certain self-aware, self-mocking quality to it. It also helps that the characters are basically good guys.
