Some energetic performances from the cast may make this accessible to a wider audience.

Manages to rock pretty steady, largely due to the efforts of its huge cast, sprinkled with some real and promising talent.

[Snoop's] funny, charismatic, delivers weak material with a look on his face that will still crack you up and has the best hair of any actor working today.

Two roommates start to antagonize each other after one becomes the other's superior at an LA car wash, and the conflict is played out with grittiness and flippancy.

Snoop, Dre and their buddies take it all in stride -- if they were any more laid-back, they'd be napping in their trailers.

The lame, underdeveloped jokes far outweigh the fresh ones, the women are all chirpy airheads, and the whole thing hangs on a feeble storyline.

You've really got to wonder sometimes how talented people end up in hopeless misfires like this film.

August 5, 2002
A 100% feeble comedy that exposes the dire acting abilities of two otherwise well respected hip-hop artists.

a plotless, mostly humorless time-killer that exists primarily as a 90-minute commercial for a star-studded soundtrack. ... the movie has all the earmarks of the "let's just make it up as we go along" school of filmmaking.

The Wash is Santo & Johnny through a swamp of mounting disinterest.

There is some comic insight here, however unfocused it may be.
