Witless Protection is a 2008 American comedy film directed by Charles Robert Carner and starring Larry the Cable Guy, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg, and Richard Bull. The film follows the story of Larry, a small-town sheriff, who becomes convinced that a young woman he has recently met is in danger. Determined to protect her, he takes her into his custody and embarks on a cross-country journey to deliver her to safety.

Larry, played by Larry the Cable Guy, is the kind of sheriff who has always been more concerned with his own comfort than the safety of his town's citizens. But all that changes when he meets Madeleine, played by Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg. Madeleine is a beautiful and mysterious woman who is on the run from some dangerous criminals. Convinced that Madeleine is in danger, Larry sets out to help her, even if it means defying his own department and risking his job in the process.

The journey that Larry and Madeleine embark on is fraught with danger and hilarity, as they are pursued by the criminals who are after Madeleine. Larry's bumbling attempts to keep them both safe from harm often result in them getting into even more trouble. Along the way, they encounter a series of quirky characters, including a group of redneck survivalists, a kindly diner owner, and an eccentric millionaire who takes a liking to Larry's unique sense of humor.

As they travel farther and farther from their small town, Larry begins to realize that there may be more to Madeleine than he initially thought. As he gets to know her better, he begins to fall for her, despite the danger that surrounds them. But will his love be enough to keep them both safe from harm? And will they be able to evade the criminals who are pursuing them?

Witless Protection is a classic Larry the Cable Guy comedy, filled with hilarious one-liners and physical comedy. Larry's signature style of humor is on full display here, and fans of his previous work will not be disappointed. However, the film also has a surprisingly heartfelt side, as Larry's love for Madeleine grows deeper and he becomes more and more committed to keeping her safe.

The performances in the film are all top-notch, with Larry the Cable Guy proving once again that he is one of the funniest comedians working today. Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg is also excellent as Madeleine, bringing a depth and complexity to the character that goes beyond the usual damsel in distress trope. Richard Bull is also fantastic as Larry's boss, and the rest of the supporting cast all turn in great performances.

Overall, Witless Protection is a hilarious and entertaining comedy that is sure to appeal to fans of Larry the Cable Guy and anyone looking for a good laugh. But it also has a surprising amount of heart, making it a film that is both funny and touching. If you're in the mood for a feel-good comedy with lots of laughs, Witless Protection is definitely worth checking out.
