'Lethal Weapon' stable-mates Joe Pesci and Danny Glover star as two buddies out on a fishing holiday in Florida, dreaming of catching the elusive 'big one'. However, when the guys' car is stolen they find themselves caught up in a search for stolen jewels with two glamorous ladies.
The disastrous Gone Fishin'
has been called "the Ishtar
of the 90s", but that's giving it too much credit. Danny Glover and Joe Pesci (who could have used their Lethal Weapon
series buddy Mel Gibson in here) star as slow-witted friends who take their dream fishing vacation in the Florida Everglades and end up having a series of disasters. Trouble is, director Christopher Cain can't get a handle on any of the comedy essentials for a project such as this. The result is a badly timed, badly toned, unfunny movie wasting a lot of great talent across the board. --Tom Keogh
