Witless Protection (2008)

How bad is it? Not the worst Larry the Cable Guy film, but not good.
Should you see it? Um, that would be a no.

Having said that I thought the biggest problem - besides being unfunny - of Larry the Cable Guy's films was that he's made out to be a genius in disguise, I was told that this one was different. Here he plays a police officer who dreams of being an FBI agent (though he doesn't know what the letters in 'FBI' stand for), runs across FBI agents escorting a woman in witness protection and he gets the idea that they're really bad guys and she needs his help. It turns out that they're really bad guys and she needs his help - so, once again, Larry's the smart one. Ugh. Even discounting the stereotypes, the sloppiness (in direction, acting, writing, etc.) and the crassness, it's just not funny. Jenny McCarthy, Yaphet Kotto (why, Yaphet, why?), Eric Roberts and Joe Mantegna are all wasted.
