Nothing to Lose [1997]

Stars: Tim Robbins, Martin Lawrence, Patrick Cranshaw, Giancarlo Esposito, Rebecca Gayheart
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama
Rating: R (Restricted)
Runtime: 98 minutes

Tim Robbins and Martin Lawrence star in this stupid comedy about a stressed-out white executive who takes a black carjacker hostage and forces him to go along on a road trip to nowhere. The duo, of course, forge a bond but find their journey interrupted by a tarantula, a pair of stickup men, a lip-synching security guard, and loads of dull sight gags. The film looks like it's supposed to suggest increasing depth for writer-director Steve Oedekerk (writer for The Nutty Professor), but he seems content with merely purloining the outline of a classic story (a white man and a black man, worlds apart, go on the run together) and filling it in with complete fluff. With Kelly Preston. The DVD release includes optional widescreen and standard formats, optional French and Spanish soundtracks, and original theatrical trailers. --Tom Keogh
