Once Upon a Time in VeniceSteve Ford: a detective who's good with the ladies, bad with the punches, and wild about his dog, Buddy. But when his beloved pet is stolen by local thugs, Steve makes a questionable alliance with their devious leader, Spyder. Teaming up with his best friend, Steve pulls out the big guns in search of Spyder's stolen cocaine and cash in order to set things straight and get Buddy back where he belongs. Thomas Middleditch, Famke Janssen, and Kal Penn co-star in this bullet-ridden action-comedy that shows just how far one man will go for his dog.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Once Upon a Time in Venice"RogerEbert.comJune 16, 2017
Once Upon a Time in Venice frequently sags underneath its own general lethargy, and not even the snarkiest John McClane can fix that.Detroit NewsJune 16, 2017
It's as much a snapshot of a screwball neighborhood as it is a loose-ended shaggy dog story, with a weird, buoyant spirit that lifts it up over its somewhat sloppy storytelling.VarietyJune 15, 2017
Bruce Willis barks up a number of wrong trees in this scattered, only sparsely amusing shaggy-dog mystery.indieWireJune 15, 2017
Bruce, you're better than this.Los Angeles TimesJune 15, 2017
Bruce Willis' latest effort to dislodge his film career from a stubborn rut goes unrewarded with "Once Upon a Time in Venice," a wincingly unfunny comedy caper set along L.A.'s funky beach community.AV ClubJune 15, 2017
A tiresome imitation of smart-alecky Shane Black whodunits like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Last Boy Scout.Mark Reviews MoviesJune 15, 2017
Looked at from a certain angle, Once Upon a Time in Venice plays as a document of how much humiliation Bruce Willis is willing to undergo for a paycheck.Film Journal InternationalJune 15, 2017
This charming, scruffy dog story pits a laid-back Los Angeles P.I. against a motley crew of lowlifes, wastrels and crooks...think Keanu with a very cute pup.Chicago Daily HeraldJune 15, 2017
[Once Upon a Time in Venice] feels like a really bad, star-studded Oceans 11 prequel which, like a first pancake, should have been thrown out.FilmDrunkJune 15, 2017
Feels sort of like a drunk, racist dad's take on 'The Big Lebowski,' which is often terrible but occasionally surreal.Blu-ray.comJune 15, 2017
"Once Upon a Time in Venice" doesn't come through with any enlivening clarity, and while Willis isn't revelatory here, at least he's awake. Sort of. That's almost worth a recommendation alone.Philadelphia Daily NewsJune 14, 2017
Surely, Willis was hoping the movie would be more like Pulp Fiction, less like Cop-Out. No such luck.
