Hilarity ensues. Except when it doesn't, which is pretty much the entire movie.

If a white filmmaker were behind the wretched ugliness that is The Wash, he'd be branded the most racist director since D.W. Griffith.

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

What could have been a delicious hoot about dysfunctional dynamics in a disillusioned workplace merely ends up as a woeful, clunky comedy of errors.

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

It's intermittently hilarious, though more of a drag.

No one will claim it steals that famous old MGM motto: 'More Stars Than There Are in Heaven.'

Overall, the phrase 'It is what it is' has never seemed more appropriate.

A poorly written, directed and performed mishmash of vignettes that the participants apparently thought would be funny.

This ain't no Friday; in fact, you'd be wasting a perfectly good high on it.

A depressing, stereotypical affair that can be thanked by the African American community for portraying their race as lazy, drug-addicted, and whorish.

Snoop Dogg (as Dee Loc) and Dr. Dre (as Sean) let their natural chemistry go completely to waste.

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

Hardly anything about this comedy is remotely funny, unless you get a kick out of Snoop Dogg getting stoned and dropping f-bombs every few words.

[Script] has all of the signs of being computer generated. The N-word and the F-word are mixed liberally and randomly...
