The Shipment

"Terrible"

The Shipment Review


File under why?

Not only is the premise of The Shipment tired, its execution is just shy of painful. The shipment in question is Mexican Viagra, the kind of phony remedy you read about daily in spam emails. Presumably the reason you never receive that Viagra when you order it is because the shipment didn't quite make it to its destination.

Enter mobsters, who head into the "country" in search of their lost drug shipment, encountering yokels like sheriff Matthew Modine and Crazy Jose (Paul Rodriguez), who ends up with the goods.

Extremely violent (in the hopes that you will somehow find endless murders funny), this "comedy" never even makes you break a smile. It's painfully unfunny, a hopeless derivative of classics like It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. It even makes Rat Race look good in comparison.

Avoid.
