Witless Protection comes out in the U.S. tomorrow, and there are still no reviews at Metacritic or Rotten Tomatoes. This isn’t too surprising, since the film is being released by Lionsgate, a studio that often avoids showing movies to critics in advance, and it stars Larry the Cable Guy, whose previous live-action films Delta Farce (2007) and Health Inspector (2006) also had critics-avoidance issues. The film will open in Canada three weeks from now, and the local publicist says it “will not be screened prior to release.”
MAR 6 UPDATE: Libertas says the film won’t be opening in Canada at all, now. That wouldn’t happen to be because the film never managed to crack the Top 12 even in the U.S., would it?
