The outtakes in the closing credits were the funniest parts of the movie.

The talented comedian mugs his way through an utterly deflated film.

This is the kind of movie where everyone looks like they are having a lot more fun than the audience.

Even as a comedy all of this begs credulity.

Cedric and Lucy Liu...may want to give their agents a good talking-to.

...it's not merely that the script is a sloppy, by-the-numbers action farce; it's more the leaden hand of director Les Mayfield...

Hollywood certainly didn't waste anytime in turning out its first insulting blaxploitation flick of 2007.

Because of its clever story, funny leading man and two gorgeous supporting actresses, 'Code Name: The Cleaner' is a welcome January surprise.

...I humbly submit that Cedric the Entertainer be required to give up the "Entertainer" portion of his nom de plume until he actually starts entertaining us.

Cedric's style of humor seems to be stating the obvious, but doing it really fast. He mumbles out loud and makes lame observations.
January 5, 2007
Not the kind of movie you need to rush out and see, but if you're sitting at home trying to decide between doing your own cleaning and watching The Cleaner, I'd pick the movie.

[A] cheerfully dumb spy comedy filled with ridiculous stereotypes and plot holes as big as cartoon anvils.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

...the comedy half doesn't work without the intrigue half, and director Mayfield doesn't look like he would know intrigue if Martin Scorsese brought it to him wrapped in butcher paper with a bow on top.

I'm sure by May Encore will be broadcasting it ten or so times in row on one of their various channels.

How do films this stale and generic continue to get made, let alone with topflight talent? Cedric has been stealing scenes from bigger names for nearly a decade; he deserves better than a few amusingly-improvised minutes at the end of his own movie.

It's a bad sign for a comedy when viewers are left pining for more ineptly staged shoot-'em-up sequences.
