What's the Worst that Could Happen? takes a while to get going, but once it does, it's surprisingly effective, just as long as you appreciate it for what it morphs into - a no-holds-barred wacky comedy.

I can't ask much more of a movie from which I expected so much less.

I don't know when a bad movie has made me laugh as much as this one.

This dumb-dumb comedy keeps enough silliness rolling across the screen to make audiences overlook its flaws.

For a quick, disposable comedy, you could do worse.

One of the funnier, well-acted comedies to come down the pike in a while.

It could have been all about Lawrence and slapstick, but it takes the smart road, doesn't dumb down the plot, trusts the audience to keep up with all the characters and delivers laughs all the way through. That's a nice surprise.

If you're on the floor in fits of uncontrollable laughter, then it doesn't matter that there are plot holes.

Isn't a great comedy by any stretch of the imagination, and it keeps going long after it runs out of story. But it definitely has five bucks worth of matinee mirth for a lazy summer afternoon.
