“Protecting America's assets.”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “During a routine day spent patrolling his small town, sheriff Larry witnesses a beautiful, high-class woman, Madeleine, being held against her will by four mysterious, black-suited men. Recognizing the opportunity to save the day, Larry ‘kidnaps’ her, only to learn that Madeleine is actually a key witness in a high-stakes Chicago crime case and her captors are FBI agents assigned to protect her. Madeleine is furious. But Larry, who rightly suspects the agents are crooked and Madeleine is in danger, forces her on a harebrained trip to Chicago to solve the case himself. Together, the mismatched duo must grapple with angry FBI agents, quack doctors and Chicago high society.”

…Sitcom wackiness… third-grade lunchroom witticisms… the slapstick and action set pieces are lame…
—Matt Zoller Seitz, The New York Times
…vulgarity, flatulence, misogyny, racism, sexism, excrement jokes… fails the Three Stooges test of finding hilarity in imbecility…
—John Anderson, Los Angeles Times
…the movie is breathtakingly offensive at times… what a pathetic anachronism this guy is…
—Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
…a plot that wouldn’t have been fresh on ‘Matlock’ in the 1980s…
—Stephen Schaefer, Boston Herald
…Sexual quips compete neck and neck with bodily function gags… Jesus’ and God's names are misused several times…
—Plugged In
…harebrained plot… People light their farts, fart in fear and pretend to fart…
