King's Ransom (2005)
Critic Consensus: Filled with crass dialogue, unlikable characters, and overdone slapstick gags, King's Ransom is an utterly inept would-be comedy.

Critic Reviews for King's Ransom
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for King's Ransom
This movie never made a lot noise but was good...would of been a B movie if the cast didn't pull it off!!
This movie had me laughing so hard!! I go into comedies looking for laughs not a story but everyone now a days think they are hard ass critics judging movies like they can do any better!
As terrible as this movie is, i only watched it for one reason...Nicole Parker is drop dead beautiful!!! I love that woman.
