A bigoted police detective undergoes a heart transplant and is haunted by the organ's donor, a suave black lawyer, who encourages him to change his slobby ways.
The comedy partnership between the two lead actors works well overall, but the screenplay only has one real joke to run with and doesn't bring anything else to the table. Average, inoffensive and bland. Not nearly enough to get the blood pumping.
5/10
