Underclassman Reviews

Andy Kurtz

Nick Cannon is a funny guy. Not only that, he's got talent and charisma. He deserves to be in a film that doesn't try its best to make him look bad.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Meant as a vehicle to deliver young actor Nick Cannon to headliner status, this lame comedy just limps along like a tricycle with bent rims.

Underclassman doesn't even try to be good.

Radio Times

Cannon co-executive produced so he has to accept some of the blame for the lack of laughs and thrills, leaving Hugh Bonneville to ham it up for all he's worth as the school's snobbish headmaster.

Arizona Daily Star

Cannon bounces through every frame hopped up with excess energy, rolling his eyes, spitting off rotten one-liners and overselling his blunt reactions to eye-splitting excess.

At times Tracy's a sensitive guy who just needs a hug; at others, he's an obnoxious motormouth.

Nick Cannon isn't nearly as funny as he thinks he is

This is one of those movies where at the end of the year you'll say, 'Underclassman, what was that about? I don't even remember it.'

Nick Cannon is too likable an actor to be stuck in junk like Underclassman.

Siega's hackneyed, by-the-books action-comedy exhibits few intelligent thoughts in its dunce cap-deserving head.

It's mind-boggling that such relentlessly offensive trash ever finds financial backing from a major Hollywood studio.

As fate would have it, I forgot to bring my Cop Movie Cliché bingo card to the screening. It's a shame, because I know I'd have won.

To the person who once told Cannon he was funny, I wish I could jump into my DeLorean, travel back in time, and administer some Irish kisses to this individual.

The smart-mouth-maverick-cop genre never looked more shopworn and played-out than in this halfhearted, half-baked mess.

Even the chase scenes sag as debut director Marcos Siega disappoints audiences at every turn.

If it weren't for the racist and puerile humour and the general laziness of the production, you could almost understand a movie like Underclassman. And maybe even forgive it.

Consists of little more than tired racial jokes and fish-out-of-water gags.

Cannon is abrasive and obnoxious, the comedy is not funny and the thrills are not thrilling.

Movie Eye

[A] clichéd and callow action-comedy piece that's about as appetizing as a dead worm in the teacher's apple. Hence, the flawed Underclassman simply doesn't make the grade

There's little that's special about Underclassman, certainly nothing that Murphy and Eddie Griffin haven't done better in movies far funnier than this.
