Filled with crass dialogue, unlikable characters, and overdone slapstick gags, King's Ransom is an utterly inept would-be comedy.

The script, by TV writer Wayne Conley, shares some elements with the old Danny DeVito comedy Ruthless People, but humor isn't one of them.
King's Ransom lumbers forth clumsily, choreographing its slapstick pratfalls with all the class and taste of a Courtney Love relapse.
Basically an improv scene sprawling to feature length.
Marital bickering, a mistaken-identity sex romp and booty shots galore follow, but few laughs.
King's Ransom is a wit-deficient barrage of obnoxious characters and second-hand punchlines.
Little in this film suggests 'director' Jeff Byrd and writer Wayne Conley possess any facility -- or familiarity -- with irony or any other comedic device.
This slapdash comedy barely coughs up more than a couple of funny scenes as the story moves in predictable fits and starts before sputtering out of fuel half way through.
The wordplay of the title here is the only slightly clever element of this extremely lame comedy.
Anthony Anderson shows he can star in a movie without a kangaroo in this kidnapping plan gone crazy.
The thing looks like it was written in a week, directed in two, and forgotten about by all involved in less than three.
King's Ransom deserves to be bashed, burned, and have its ashes scattered over Hollywood
It is, quite plainly, like watching a movie that's trying to go out of its way to be horrible.
