Product Overview

Larry the Cable Guy returns for another comic misadventure as a small town sheriff who unwittingly gets involved in a high profile FBI case. Larry single-handedly "rescues" a sophisticated woman from the men who are actually protecting her. The hilariously mismatched duo must grapple with angry FBI agents, quack doctors and Chicago high society in his funniest, most unpredictable adventure yet.

Editors Note
Note Standup comedy phenom Larry the Cable Guy (CARS, BLUE COLLAR TV, DELTA FARCE) brings plenty of girth and mirth to his latest film, the police caper WITLESS PROTECTION. Larry (real name Daniel Lawrence Whitney) plays Deputy Larry Sandler, a small-town sheriff's deputy with good time buddies, a sassy but adoring girlfriend named Connie (Jennie McCarthy), and dreams of being an FBI agent. Providence comes Larry's way when he spots Madeleine Dimkowski (Ivana Milicevic) and concludes that her FBI escorts, led by Yaphet Kotto (HOMICIDE), are not on the level. Larry kidnaps big city snob Madeleine, who is a key government witness against corrupt businessman Arthur Grimsley (Peter Stormare), and resolves to deliver her to the proper authorities in Chicago. Hotly pursued by Kotto's bogus FBI agents, as well as Grimsley's devious security chief (Eric Roberts), Larry and Madeleine must learn to bridge their many cultural differences if they are to make it to the trial alive. Lampooning everything from celebrity adoption habits to Homeland Security, the film cuts a broad swath of unabashed political incorrectness on its cross-country escapade. Farcical and fun, WITLESS PROTECTION aims to prove that, no matter what our backgrounds or biases, nothing brings out the best like doing what's right.

ReviewSource The Onion A.V. Club
Review With the possible exceptions of right-wing radio hosts and left-wing documentary filmmakers, nobody has benefited more from the culture war than Larry The Cable Guy. If this were a just, utopian world where liberals and conservatives could calmly discuss their differences and arrive at solutions everyone could live with, Larry The Cable Guy wouldn't exist. He'd still be known as Dan Whitney, a harmlessly hacky radio DJ treating his small cadre of listeners to hiii-larious zingers about Michael Jackson running day-care centers, between Nickelback and Hinder cuts on the morning zoo-crew shift...With Witless Protection--another lazy, wretched entry in an epically undistinguished filmography--Larry reveals that the joke is ultimately on his fans, and he's yukking it up all the way to the bank...Larry The Cable Guy is a cancerous boil on the ass of comedy, but it's still sort of shocking how little effort he puts into his movies. Surely a man who ranks among the most successful comics working today could attract better collaborators than Witless Protection writer-director Charles Robert Carner, whose past credits consist entirely of TV movies like 1994's One Woman's Courage with Patty Duke and 2002's Christmas Rush (also known as Breakaway) with Dean Cain and Erika Eleniak. Then again, talent like Carner comes cheap.

Betty Jo Tucker, Reel Talk Although they're not Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable in It Happened One Night, [Larry and Milicevic's] bizarre chemistry seems to work.
