Kevin Spacey is a performer who can do no wrong, and his acting expertise is a big bonus for this seriocomic tale about the man who devised the "ab-clicker."
Though it was intended to help the physiques of those who used it, it ended up injuring many of them instead, landing him in prison as the result of a class-action suit. After he's released, he appeals to his daughter (Camilla Belle) to help him get back on his feet. Heather Graham, John Stamos, Virginia Madsen and "Jackass" icon Johnny Knoxville also appear. *** (PG-13: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
