I began hating it not just for its utter lack of quality as art or entertainment, but for the blackness of its very soul.

Witless, lowbrow fun is the signature of this so-so comedy with Larry the Cable Guy in fine fat form as a country bumpkin deputy sheriff with delusions of grander than smalltown cop

The movie doesn't even have the common decency to be under 90 minutes. What a bore.

should once and for all spell the end of Larry the Cable Guy's horrendous run of Hollywood hokum.

Witless Protection is disgusting, racist, clueless, sexist, charmless, unfunny, infantile, mean-spirited, amateurish, and insulting. In other words, it stars Larry The Cable Guy.

From this kind of witlessness, the only protection is not to see it.

Lowbrow comedy is crude -- and not very funny.

You have what might very well be the worst movie of 2008. And 2009. And probably 2010, too. Did we fail to mention the exploding farts?

Larry The Cable Guy is a cancerous boil on the ass of comedy, but it's still sort of shocking how little effort he puts into his movies.

About as charming as being slapped by a stranger.

In many ways, this movie reminds me of an Uwe Boll flick

During the last part of this wacky comedy, it loses the amusing push-pull intimacy between its 'odd-couple' protagonists.

One can only hope that Witless Protection is targeted at a vanishing species of American Neanderthal. In the meantime, perhaps Larry and his accomplices at Lionsgate could take some sensitivity traning.

The otherwise genial Witless Protection scrapes bottom whenever a black person or an Asian or an Arab is wheeled on for just-kiddin' laughs.

I've got an idea for Larry the Cable Guy's next dumb movie. Maybe the lowbrow bumbler with the big heart and even bigger beer gut could play, oh I don't know, a cable guy?

In Witless Protection, Larry the Cable Guy plays a small-town deputy, fantasizing about becoming an F.B.I. agent. Sitcom wackiness ensues.

It's the audience that deserves Protection from this Witless Larry the Cable Guy vehicle.

Maybe there are only two kinds of people in this world. Those who think Larry the Cable Guy is funny, and those who do not. I am in the latter camp.

Did someone give a starring role to a Matador, one of the obese male cheerleaders who perform during time outs at Chicago Bulls' games?

Merely an excuse for the viewer to delight in the hilarity generated by Mr. Cable Guy breaking wind, vomiting, producing various gastric noises, etc.
