(out of 5)
Generally worthless comedy that teams up a smarmy Mel Gibson and a bubbly Goldie Hawn for a forgettable caper. Years after he was presumably killed in a plane crash, Gibson shows up at Hawn’s house and announces that he was living under Witness Protection for having witnessed a crime involving a drug cartel. Now he’s in trouble because someone recognized him under his new identity and the people he helped put away are looking for revenge. Car chases, motorcycle chases, gratuitous butt shots and tasteless gay jokes abound, making for the kind of comedy that would have appealed to teenagers in the eighties but is tired and old by now. The finale inside a city zoo is especially cheap in look and feel.
