Audience Reviews for What's the Worst That Could Happen?

  • Jul 06, 2015
    Incredibly dumb, What's the Worst That Could Happen? is complete and utter garbage. Danny DeVito and Martin Lawrence star is a crooked businessman and a petty criminal who get into a no-holds-barred grudge match over a lucky ring. The performances are just awful and the plot makes no sense. Most of the jokes fall flat and the characters aren't that likable. What's the Worst That Could Happen? is a horrible film in which nothing works.

    The story focuses on a cat and mouse game between a clever thief Kevin (Martin Lawrence), and a crooked business tycoon Max Fairbanks (Danny DeVito), who turn each other's lives upside down after the former is caught burglarizing the Max's house and instead he gets robbed of his most prized possession: his girlfriend's ring. Now, he will stop at nothing to get the ring that was stolen from him. To help him is the hilarious John Leguizamo and joining them is Bernie Mac as Kevin's uncle. William Fichtner is also unforgettable as the police detective who suspects De Vito of committing insurance fraud.

    I actually enjoyed it, although there was too many chacthers, the plot was loose, and it wasn't as funny as you'd expect, but I still liked it, Sort of.
