The movie was funny in parts but not quite what I was expecting. It's more aimed at younger people which my grandson thought was funny. I found it a little ridiculous but I like Larry so that's why it was bought. It's worth watching if you're looking for something totally different.

Lighted Up Folks! June 19 2008
By TotallyOnHolliday - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
After reading the other 4 reviews here, I probably wouldn't have rented this movie. However, I really liked Larry's two previous movies, especially Delta Farce, so I gave this one a quick spin around the block. Besides, any movie that the critics hate, I usually like anyway. I must say that this movie is a little more funny that Delta Farce. It is well-casted and had some great, funny moments. The humor surrounding the FBI agents was pretty good (i.e., an agents whose last name is Orange, so "Agent Orange") and it was great to see Yaphett Kotto after not seeing him in a movie for more than 5 years. Also, seeing Eric Roberts roam around in a jacket with the large letters "PMS" was pretty fair, too. I think you really need to be in a certain mood when taking in a new movie. I started watching this movie thinking it would be terrible, yet came out laughing and wanting to go immediately to the nearest video store to buy it. You just gotta have fun with this one!

Rent, do not buy June 23 2009
By Christy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
My husband and I have seen several of Larry the Cable Guy's comedy routines and find him funny so when we saw this for sale for $4 (yes, brand new!) at the store we thought we should give it a try. It was a shocker to see Jenny McCarthey with a very small roll but kind of glad since she did a really bad job with her hick accent and all she did was walk around in a mini skirt and cut off shirts. Anyway, the script was really bad. There were some funny moments, but for the most part there were just corny jokes constantly that didn't get a laugh out of my husband or I. Surely this movie will be left in our album to collect dust and never see the light of day again. If you are a huge fan or Larry, you may enjoy it but it has total B movie (and maybe even C) written all over it.

Simply Awful Acting and Pitiful Story Line. Save your money! Oct. 13 2008
By M Cox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Now I love a lot of his standup comedy jokes, but this guy is just an awful actor. I could not even manage a smile throughout this entire movie, much less a laugh. Worse yet, nobody in the entire movie was any good. Rent, don't buy -- it is just not worth it. I'm not even sure about a rental either. The writers should be shot. The story line is nothing short of amateurish. High school kids could have done better -- a lot better. I should have paid more attention to the other bad reviews -- my mistake.

Witless is right Sept. 29 2012
By S. A. S. L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I gave this movie the beneifit of the doubt because I love slapstick and Larry is very amusing on the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour". Larry did not transition well onto the big screen. When I think of redneck, slapstick, sweet and funny with the underdog as the hero, my mind immediately goes to Jim Varney's 'Ernest P. Worrell', whose shoes Larry or other rednecks or redneck wannabes, will never be able to fill. I can't be the only one who sees Larry's attempts to mirror the lovable hayseed, Ernest. There is the hat, the accent, the clothes, the stand-up comedy then moving over into movies. This movie has too much crude humor and disgusting bathroom jokes and there is no excuse for the racist comments, especially in a movie such as this. The(dare I say it?) plot was weaker than the pulse of a comatose patient.*(And I am not making light of people who have suffered or are suffering through this.) "Witless Protection" has deterred me from watching any of the other Larry movies. I think it's best for him to stick to stand-up comedy, which does work better for him. I'm from the South and I think that Larry does give us a bad name. You can do comedy without making fun of other races, sexual orientation or using over the top sexual comments and bathroom humor(One fart joke will do, sometimes). Is this what has become of America? Have we really sunk so low that every ridiculous script/movie is greelighted just because of a t.v. personalities' previous work? A good stand-up comedian doesn't necessarily translate to a good movie actor. Some people have it. Some don't. Larry doesn't.

Git R' Don't? Feb. 27 2008
By John Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
I'm about to commit some kind of sacrilege. I love Larry the Cable Guy, I stuck up for his past few movies, which got almost panned across the board and I really was hoping that this third time would be the charm, that a few critics would lighten up and the movie would draw some decent cash. Sadly that is not the case and I am about to half heartedly recommend Larry's newest movie.

Larry here (still playing himself so arguably his presence is a natural one) is a small town deputy sheriff who is in training to be an FBI agent. He's in a cafe chatting away with his pals and his gal Connie when an SUV filled with suits suddenly pulls over for a break and among the group is Madeline, whom Larry believes has been kidnapped. Smelling not a fart, but an opportunity to prove himself of being an FBI agent follows the SUV and takes the girl Madeline, only problem is that she is WITH the FBI and now he kidnapped her. Larry however remains convinced that she was kidnapped and builds his evidence along the way to a conclusion where hilarity doesn't ensue.

Why not? Admittedly Larry's catchphrases and shtick which play better on stage are wearing out at the theater and Madeline actually gets better lines then Larry does which shouldn't happen. Madelin and Larry's chemsitry is weird too, a proper European woman with a Southern Bumpkin who warm up to each other chugs with a the grace of a dying Chevy. No one scene in Witless Protection really soars or made me laugh out loud either, some scenes just play out with lines I know are supposed to be funny but didn't work. The polo match where Larry bull in a chinas hops his way to a win is the only case and that was slight. A fist fight in a museum room could have been great but also misses.

By the way, did I mention Yaphet Kotto's character name is the same here as it was in the vastly superior Midnight Run? Thats a crime.

Larry, I love you but this movie wasn't that great. It was better a movie then I thought it would be, but it's not as funny as it should have been. At least for Larry's crybaby audience his gay/foreigner humor is toned down, which is good, but people will still whine at what is left in the movie, especially Larry's attempt to get a hotel room. Irregardless the film wasn't as funny as it should have been and I'm afraid that if another Larry movie tanks, his screen name could be Larry the Direct to home Video Guy.
