While the story and action are silly and unrealistic in many scenes, the main duo of Martin & Latifah bring charisma to their roles, while the story is spiced up by subplots, one involving a character played by Eugene Levy (The Dad from the American Pie films), another involving veteran English actress Joan Plowright, and additional supporting roles by Jean Smart as Martin's ex-wife and another actress playing a nasty sister-in-law. …
