“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector (2006)
How bad is it? Even the title has flaws. Should you see it? No. Fans of anyone in the cast should not be deceived.
First the obvious: a guy whose name includes his profession plays an unrelated profession. I don't hate redneck humor or bathroom humor, but this does both very poorly. Larry's sent to posh restaurants to find the source of food poisoning and manages to develop a love interest in a waitress. David Koechner, Tony Hale, Joanna Cassidy, Joe Pantaliano, Lisa Lampanelli, Kid Rock and Jerry Mathers all have roles (the last two mere cameos). The film is nothing but gross-out humor, but it's all completely expected and obvious and there's no interest in the characters or the plot.
