"Dumb, unfunny, pointless."
1 stars

A jewel thief, Miles Logan (Martin Lawrence) hides a jewel in a building and 2 years later has to retrieve it from what is now a police station by going undercover as a cop.

The second rate Eddie Murphy gags provide a few amusingly ironic moments but for the most part itís an unbelievable, run of the mill no-brainer and everyone in the film seems to have an IQ of 50.

The funniest parts were when Miles shows some cheering white cops how to bash their suspects to get information and near the end when a French criminal has to work out whether Miles is a cop or criminal.

You could argue that the film has a message that cops need to get a little dirty and get around the left wing laws to get justice but that may be reading too much into yet another piece of Hollywood junk.

If you enjoyed Life then this may be your kind of movie, but otherwise catch it on a TV rerun in 5 years time! (Gawain
