Some fun scenes, but the ending was bad! There were 2 alternate endings on the DVD and either would have been better than the one they settled for. Also found the scene with the doorman in the subway a bit serious for a zany comedy.
.Maybe not the most hilarious film I have ever seen or the most exciting but the quality cast and witty script more than make up for that.Very likeable and enjoyable.
Slips down like a cool Guinness and does EXACTLY what it promises, but pity about the last shot. Can't go into it here but a broad grin (think the end of ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA) rather than a mere hint of a smile would have suited MUCH better. 7/10
Not as delicious as I had anticipated but still a worthy comedy although it doesnt feel like it for half of the movie. The laughs come in fast and furious when Eddie Murphy shows up. It is a shame he only had something of a cameo role although the film posters suggest otherwise. He should have come in earlier and had a more developed role. Clearly, the theme of the story is the current public dismay with wall street and associated corporate greed and fraud.-swindling out the regular guy. Several genuine laughs but their fair in between. Mathew Broderick is miscast in this one. On the whole a worthy one and half hour at the cineplex
Often cliched, sloppily written, and consistently predictable, this movie is still amusing. Easy entertainment providing you don't look for the cracks. 5/10.
