The stars have no edge to their performances and Worst never comes close to becoming 'best.'
Top Critic
Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times
June 1, 2001
Has too many characters, not enough plot, and a disconnect between the two stars' acting styles.

An uninvolving bore -- a caper comedy that replaces humor and cleverness with tedium and stupidity.

There is an overall slackness and an underlying cynicism that takes this outside of the category of mindless fun and makes it uncomfortably distasteful.

It's hard to imagine that a movie with this cast could come up with so few solid laughs.

The film is fun enough to pass the time, but with a cast like this, you want more than competence.

A dishonest comedy in which far too many of the jokes are based on faulty premises.

Now and then sputters to comic life but more usually wheezes along.

Bumbles along from scene to scene without developing any suspense or comic momentum.

Unlikely to inspire rioting at the box office, unless it's by people demanding their money back.

Even Lawrence's comedic talent can't overcome a sense of narrative futility.

It simply isn't that funny or clever. For a comedy, that's about the worst that could happen.

The film isn't just lightweight, it's weightless. You don't forget it two minutes later; you forget it before it's over.

What's the worst that could happen? This witless mess of a farce starring Martin Lawrence and Danny DeVito, that's what.
