Cliched and endlessly self-referential, Who Is Cletis Tout? doesn't add anything original to the crime genre.

Quirky, often-fun film.
It's just a little too self-satisfied.
Merely a diversion, but clever enough to divert.
At best, Cletis Tout might inspire a trip to the video store -- in search of a better movie experience.
It won't hold up over the long haul, but in the moment, Finch's tale provides the forgettable pleasures of a Saturday matinee.
Cletis is playful but highly studied and dependent for its success on a patient viewer.
On the level of the dime-a-dozen Tarantino wannabes that clutter the bottom shelves at the video store.
There's a sweetness to it that's disarming and diverting -- mostly thanks to performances of Slater, Richard Dreyfuss as his partner in crime, and Portia Di Rossi as Dreyfuss' daughter.
The whole mildly pleasant outing -- the R rating is for brief nudity and a grisly corpse -- remains aloft not on its own self-referential hot air, but on the inspired performance of Tim Allen.
If you love movies, it's hard not to like Who Is Cletis Tout? or at least smile through it.
Overall, Cletis Tout is a winning comedy that excites the imagination and tickles the funny bone.
A great idea becomes a not-great movie.
Mildly entertaining. Storyline was only ok, but presented in a unique narrative style. Ru Paul's character was unnecesary, and distracting. Doesn't work on every level, but not too bad. Passed away an afternoon for me...
Christian Slater stars as a crook who gets a new identity after breaking out of prison. He's given the name Cletis Tout, which turns out to be the name of someone the mob wants dead. While Slater is looking for a box of diamonds that his friend (Ricard Dreyfuss) in prison hid when he was younger, he gets help from Dreyfuss' daughter (Portia de Rossi).
The movie wants to be a smart Get Shorty type of mob comedy, but it never reaches that level. The only reason to watch this movie is for the performances. Believe it or not, but Tim Allen steals the show as a movie loving hit-man. Tim Allen shows here and Redbelt that he's wasted in the crappy family comedies that he usually makes. The guy can actually act and can handle more serious roles. Although, I wouldn't mind seeing him as "Tim the Tool Man Taylor" one more time lol.
