...Blue Streak is simply unable to overcome the scenery-chewing excess of Lawrence's hopelessly incompetent turn.

Lawrence has become involved in a film that makes us acutely embarrassed for him.

You watch this movie for Lawrence's antics but soon realize he doesn't really involve the audience in his comedy, the way Murphy did in 48Hrs.

Much of Lawrence's verbal humor is more miss than hit, with the misses certain to come off as juvenile to the uninitiated.

For all of his comedic efforts, though, Lawrence can't make this cubic zirconia into the jewel it wants to be.

Lawrence seems trapped in his jug-eared, slightly clownish nervousness, like a sidekick suddenly shoved into the spotlight.

A pooped, poorly executed buddy-cop comedy with more cliches than expletives.

The contortional physical shtick familiar from Lawrence's sitcom, laden with a dollop of Three Stooges violence, should keep the boys happy.

The result is an action comedy where the comedy frequently hits the bull's-eye but is overpowered by the action.

Still, the movie is pretty bad. It's Rush Hour meets 48 Hours meets Bad Boys except this time around there's only one bad boy and the script and direction are subpar.

The film may be routine, but Lawrence is anything but.

A formula picture that never rises above the generic but entertains nevertheless.

Succeeds as an undemanding, fast-paced comedy.

Apart from Lawrence's goofing, Blue Streak isn't much of a movie and its formula of stunts, anti-authority humor and a chase-and-crash finale is predictable enough to be depressing.
