This is one of our family's favorite movies. Quaid & Turner are great but Stanley Tucci steals the show. My kids have many of the lines memorized. This is a movie that is fun for all.

For entertainment, this movie is tops. It suits New Orleans' reputed ambiance as The Big Easy.

I love this film. Stanley Tucci plays a great loser!

"I happened across this film on a cable network that will remain anonymous. I saw that Kathleen Turner and Dennis Quaid were in it, and it was a comedy, so I watched it. All I can say is....I laughed my butt off! I was shocked because I had never heard of this film. It must have been made and send directly to video, although that's no indication of it's quality."My name...is Muerte!" The supposedly streetwise thug played by Tucci says when he mugs his victims. Morty, as Quaid calls him, meets his match when he meets ex-CIA, ex-FBI agent Jeff (played by Quaid).On vacation after the birth of their first child, Quaid and Turner go to New Orleans to enjoy some good food and music, but end up getting pulled back into service of the government when a terrorist organization is trying to buy up a lot of an experimental high explosive.The action is good, and the comedy even better. There is no adult humor in this film, so it's suitable for even younger children, although the fight scenes might be a bit much for very young kids.If you like any of the actors in this film, or just like comedy, you should pick this up, it's one of the best comedies out there."
Action comedy at its best.

"What is the matter with the critics? They all say that Undercover Blues is trash, while in reality it is one of the best comedies ever! Despite all the bad reviews in the newspapaers I decided to give this movie a change and I ended up buying it. Turner and Quaid, obviously enjoying themselfs in their somewhat unusual roles display an unexpected talent for comedie and the movie has a better plot than one would expect. Now some fools may think that all comedy must be in Jim Carey style, but personally I much prefer the calmer, better organised style that Herbert Ross achieved here. Good camera work and a nice soundtrack help and a special award should have been reserved for Stanley Tucci as an imbecile assassin. A great movie for all the family."
Good, good fun

"Is this great art? Will this film be remembered in 100 years as one of the best works of cinematography of the 20th Century? Will Kathleen Turner and Dennis Quaid identify this as the high points of their careers? No, on all counts. On the other hand, is this good, solid fun? Is it suitable for all audiences? Does it have a high degree of rewatchability? Can you throw it in the VCR at any time and get some smiles, some laughs, and a giggle or two? Absolutely. This is a steal on VHS. So when's the DVD coming out?"
