James Russell: I want some answers!
Franklin Hatchett: Hey man, me and Guy just down here, checkin' out some fly rides, and mackin' some hos and chillin'.
James Russell: Imagine that. It's like a G-Dog on a fly tip. Flossin' wit da posse. Cuttin' in da crib. WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT MEAN?
This movie just fits right into my guilty pleasures list. Its an enjoyable action/comedy that features Chris Tucker buddying up to everybody. Charlie Sheen also stars, but he pretty much just gets to react to Tucker's antics.
Franklin Hatchett: You know guns don't kill people, stupid motherfuckers with guns kill people!
The story involves a local street hustler, Tucker, getting mixed up in some sordid affairs involving some French bad guys. Long story short, Tucker is on the run after being positioned as an accomplice in a prison break and cop murders. He was partially put in this position by a local news reporter, Sheen, and must now hideout with him for the weekend.
Some action ensues, as Tucker gets involved in a scheme involving the recovery of 15 million dollars worth of diamonds. Money will eventually talk as Tucker must con his way into getting rid of everyone who is after him.
James Russell: I need this for sweeps week!
Franklin Hatchett: Sweeps week? Man fuck sweeps week, my life's on the line and you're talking about a damn broom!
People give director Bret Ratner a lot of flack for his party boy attitude and the fact that he's made four Chris Tucker movies and is essentially blamed for X3, but dammit if he doesn't deliver a movie that is quick paced and a lot of fun.
The plot is silly but it delivers a lot of laughs, makes good use of Tucker and his interactions with the supporting cast, which includes Paul Sorvino, and has a good amount of 90s R rated violence. Fun stuff.
James Russell: You fuck up the suit, we've got a problem.
Franklin Hatchett: Fuck the suit, we've already got a problem!
