The Man (2005, USA) C-83m. ** D: Les Mayfield. Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Eugene Levy, Luke Goss, Miguel Ferrer, Susie Essman. Tough cop Jackson, whose partner has just been killed, is about to get in touch with a weapons dealer, when conservative family father Levy steps into his way. The dental appliances salesman is forced to work with Jackson, as the crooks believe him to be the contact. Buddy movie comedy sounds like it's second-rate (which in some parts it is), but you end up being entertained quite well. Levy (AMERICAN PIE) is funny.
