Slipshod storytelling, junior high-level acting and direction that resembles Aunt Gertrude's home movies.
A waste of time.
Just rambles around loudly, making little sense, before winding to a close.
The senseless chases and unexplained affairs and alliances ... wear on the patience of the audience.
Personally, I found it in the same league as Clerks, and people call Kevin Smith a genius.
It's not exactly what I'd call brilliant filmmaking, but it is heads above anything any of the Wayans brood have done in a long time.
This is the type of movie that, if you manage to get in for free, you still want your money back.
