I could go on and on about how funny this film is, because it is truly great comedy.

It's often a sloppy and muddled tale - but there are much worse ways to spend a random 90 minutes.

In this refreshingly shameless celebration of money and expensive stuff, director Kevin Bray grabs every retro action-film cliché.

It's fun to watch the stocky, scowling Ice Cube and skinny, jittery Epps play off each other.

It's refreshingly low-tech, more like a '70s action movie than a modern-day one.

I was expecting much worse from the film, but it actually was a nice change from stupid urban comedies like How High.
