Nothing To Lose: AC3 Laserdisc
Touchstone / 1997 / 98 Mins / Rated R


MOVIE
Now this is a better Martin Lawrence vehicle. Tim Robbins plays Nick Beam an executive that arrives home early to meet his wife but when he arrives home he find's her in bed with his boss. His life in tatters Nick just gets in his car and drives aimlessly not giving a hoot about anything when he is carjacked by T (Martin Lawrence) but things soon get turned around when Nick kidnaps T and so begins one very funny buddy movie where they get into all types of trouble from avoiding 2 inept crooks to Hillbillies with guns. Nick then comes up with the idea to rob his boss of his money as revenge for sleeping with his wife, which just causes more loony fun.

This is a funny movie from beginning to end, look for the director Steve Odekerk as the security guard with bad dancing sense. Very funny.

VIDEO

An average picture at best and is not all that it could be. Shadow detail is lacking and colors are also muted.

Nothing To Lose is framed at 1:85:1 and is not 16:9 enhanced.

There are 2 sides on this Laserdisc.

AUDIO
Encoded in Dolby Digital 5.1 the sound track is not going to set the world on fire but does achieve what it set out to do. Sound steering is minimal but surround use is constant. The .1 channel received quite a bit of use though.
EXTRAS
No extras on this LD, what a surprise.
FINAL THOUGHTS
Great entertaining movie on an acceptable disc. Even if you do not have a LaserDisc player, get it on DVD it's a great movie.
