Amusing story and good action.
With action comedies you normally do not expect much of the plot, but with Bruce Willis I have gotten to expect just a little more - e.g. The Whole Nine Yards. This movie has it to some extend, but not fully. It good but will never become a classic.
To be honest I blame Tracy Morgan AND the writer for this. Tracy's character Paul is very far out and already borderlining silly comedy, and when played by Tracy Morgan, this just pushes him and the movie over the edge for me. Too much slapstick and easy bought comedy based ridicules behavior. I am sure he would make a fantastic stand-up comedian, but for this particular he pull the rating down, in my opinion.
Sean Willam Scott is also borderlining but manages to keep in check, and actually delivers a quite good action part. I am not however not pleased with the way he is pulled back out of the plot again.
The movie really does have quite a few good action scenes, and those parts are highly entertaining. Plus points for that!
In general a good movie for a an amusing evening on the sofa.
