'Gone Fishin' '

In this unbelievably moronic comedy, Danny Glover and Joe Pesci try to goof it up as lifelong fishing buddies. The result? Some hideous, non-amusing combination of "Dumb & Dumber" and "Grumpy Old Men," as they head to the Everglades to catch "the big one." Instead, they get caught up in madcap trouble and the search for a stash of treasure in the swamps, right around the time a con artist (Nick Brimble) makes off with their car. Cut bait and avoid this trip. Contains scenes of forced, infantile humor. -- Desson Howe
