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.

You could get as many laughs staying home and listening to a dial tone for 90 minutes.

This is the type of movie that, if you manage to get in for free, you still want your money back.

A fairly dreadful comedy.

The senseless chases and unexplained affairs and alliances ... wear on the patience of the audience.

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.

Personally, I found it in the same league as Clerks, and people call Kevin Smith a genius.
