By the end, even the irrepressible Mr. Foxx seems tired and defeated.

Held Up is a fish-out-of-water comedy that is all wet from the start.
January 1, 2000
This slow and talky sitcom may leave its paying customers feeling Held Up.
January 1, 2000
There's enough nice timing and character surprises to make it click at least half of the time.
January 1, 2000
There are points in the movie where you think you're ready to laugh, but, like the movie as a whole, they don't amount to much.
January 1, 2000
Everybody's timing seems off the beat, as if they're trying to get a handle on the script, which has more tone than jokes.

Maybe a few years from now Held Up won't look like the misstep for Jamie Foxx that it appears to be today. But it probably will.
