Once Upon a Time in Venice is a sterling example of how a lazy star can make a bad movie even worse.

That hissing sound you hear is the air being let out of Bruce Willis as he struggles mightily to reconnect with once-vital action-comedy chops in the dim, unfunny Once Upon a Time in Venice.

Of course Willis employs his trademark smirk and his familiar sarcastic line readings. Of course we've seen him play variations on this downtrodden, wisecracking cynic in better movies. But B-movie Willis is still kind of a hoot.

Once Upon a Time in Venice frequently sags underneath its own general lethargy, and not even the snarkiest John McClane can fix that.

It's as much a snapshot of a screwball neighborhood as it is a loose-ended shaggy dog story, with a weird, buoyant spirit that lifts it up over its somewhat sloppy storytelling.

Bruce Willis' latest effort to dislodge his film career from a stubborn rut goes unrewarded with "Once Upon a Time in Venice," a wincingly unfunny comedy caper set along L.A.'s funky beach community.

A tiresome imitation of smart-alecky Shane Black whodunits like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Last Boy Scout.

A bunch of well-known faces look lost in "Once Upon a Time in Venice," which is billed as an action-comedy but has little comedy and less action.
