The plot and dialogue are third-rate and no one, not even Mel Gibson -- Glover and Pesci's Lethal Weapon partner -- could save this clunker.

Joe Pesci and Danny Glover need to get their agents on the phone, pronto.

Gone Fishin' is a slapdash, slapstick waste of time -- hook, line and stinker.

The saddest thing about this unfunny, misguided motion picture is watching two performers I admire -- Joe Pesci and Danny Glover -- stumble their way through such obviously inferior material.

A mirthless, graceless slapstick comedy with little to recommend it except some Florida scenery -- which, come to think of it, isn't all that scenic.

Film is so formulaic that virtually every plot point is telegraphed way in advance.

Like any Pesci outing post-Goodfellas, this can be described with one word; that word is 'hackneyed'.

I hope the person that greenlighted this was fired.

This is one of the summer's sorrier excuses for a major-studio release.

An unfunny, meandering film attempting to be a comedy.

Joe Pesci and Danny Glover, mumble so many of their lines that a large portion of the film is incomprehensible.

Maybe the sequel will even make me laugh.

After this and 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag, maybe the Academy will ask Pesci to return his Oscar.

There's certainly nothing inherently clever about the premise.
