Not the best script here considering Cage & Jackson's abilities, but worth a look-see!

Another Great Comedy that Almost Nobody Saw
Donegal Dan | Southwest United States | 05/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know how it is that some very good movies get sidetracked when they are first released. This is one of them and it is well worth watching and owning, in my opinion. Of course, as a previous reviewer noted, it is NOT a re-do of the famous radio show and if you expect it to be, you will be very confused by it. No, this comedy is very much its own black-and-white story and a hilarious commentary on the prejudices and preconceived notions that are to be found even among the most supposedly enlightened of us. The whole comedy stems from erroneous assumptions made about a black man seen in an empty house in a posh NY community at night (he is, of course, the new owner). Both Samuel L. Jackson and Nicholas Cage (cast as a down-at-heels drifter pressed into service by the local sheriff) play their parts to perfection and Dabney Coleman and the cast of supporting characters are also excellent in their various roles as bumbling law dogs, neighbors, reporters, etc. In sum, I found this underrated film to be not only extremely funny but a wise and wry social commentary as well."
Nicolas Cage Does it Again
Canary | USA | 02/17/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ok, this film isn't one for the Academy Awards. But it is entertaining, and it has more truth to it than some of us might like to admit. Cage is funny as the hapless white convict, and Jackson is credible in his role as the successful black man who is viewed with suspicion in the mostly white world he's entered. The pace is not too slow, and in addition to making me smile, it also made me think a little. Maltin's use of the term "agonizing" should be reserved for movies like "Striptease" and "The Water Boy.""
A Very Entertaining Movie!!!!
P. A. Tamblyn | Victoria Australia | 04/17/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I first viewed this movie when it first came out and loved it.I had forgotten all about it untill 2 weeks ago, when while looking on amazon, saw its listing. I ordered it straight away, and would have to say that this is a very entertaining movie. It has a very original story line, and is realy funny. This movie is a must see, rent or buy, you cant go wrong."
