A concert film of comedian Martin Lawrence's 2001 RunTelDat tour.
In his first blush of popularity about a decade ago, with his stand-up comedy, films and sitcom, Martin Lawrence was unavoidable. Arguably, he is a bigger star now. His audience rapport is probably still strong enough to survive "Martin Lawrence Live: Runteldat," a comedy concert filmed in Washington. This picture is mostly a lump of run-of-the-mill profanity sprinkled with a few remarks so geared toward engendering audience sympathy that you might think he was running for office — or trying to win over a probation officer. — Elvis Mitchell
