All Critics (85) | Top Critics (28)

This is a film that's better than it has any right to be.

Top Critic

Orlando Sentinel
Top Critic

Violent waste of talent.

I thought this was funny at parts and entertaining. It's not great though and the plot has been seen in a lot of different movies over the years.

Jason Spencer

Super Reviewer

Fun comedy with some twists and turns in it, especially at the end. Eddie Griffin is a comic genious. And Orlando Jones's not bad himself.
