Comment: Lawrence stars as a professional thief who has his ring stolen by crooked tycoon DeVito, then turns his life upside down to try and get it back. A great comedic cast and premise, but the film fails to take advantage of them. There are far too many lapses where the humor seems nonexistent. Fichtner provides a spark as a gay, dog-loving detective. **
