Review: "The Out-Laws"


This Happy Madison production has Adam Sandler written all over it -- not a compliment in this case, as the cast of talents and funny premise are undermined by some of the Sandler-style antics.


The Out-Laws lets the genuinely funny Devine and icons Brosnan and Barkin get overwhelmed by a mish-mash of gags and gross-outs.


The film lands some laughs, mostly exploiting Devine's physical comedy and Brosnan's physical attractiveness (watch for the Bond reference).


But the gratuitous violence and crass humor muddy the tone.


Comic Kind is in especially good form as the nerdy dad, but Jagannathan, so sophisticated as the mom in Netflix's Never Have I Ever, is miscast as a heartless mobster.
