The movie stars Larry the Cable Guy as Deputy Sheriff Larry Stalder, a country lawman who is smarter than he seems. Larry wants to become a federal lawman, but previous efforts have led to disaster.
One day, while hanging out with his friends and his waitress girlfriend, Connie, in the local diner, he sees a beautiful city girl accompanied by men in suits and dark glasses. He thinks the men might be kidnappers, so he steals the girl, whose name is Madeline, and takes off with her in his truck.
Larry finds out that the men are FBI agents and Madeline is the only witness against her former boss, a crooked businessman named Arthur Grimsley. Even so, Larry keeps the girl, because he believes the FBI agents are not following procedure. They must be crooked, he tells Madeline.
Larry’s suspicions turn out to be true. He fakes Madeline’s death and infiltrates Grimsley’s social circle to find a computer disk that will support her testimony.
WITLESS PROTECTION is filled with crude and lame humor, including vulgar references to sex, body parts and bodily functions. Despite all the stupidity, there are some intelligent moments where Larry displays his detective abilities and outwits the bad guys. Those moments are few and far between, however.
