    Spike Lee had high aspirations in this film. It's supposed to give us world peace and jobs for everybody by the time the final accord is signed. It's a great dream and one we must have thought at some point was shared by all. But it's fairly evident now that it isn't and it wasn't.

    wished I'd seen it sooner. agree that it's uneven. The original was pure comedy and so this one's comedy, when injected, causes the unevenness. i was impressed with the very very end's plot twist, which I found clever and hadn't seen coming, but then realized there had been fore shardowing, and actually made a lot of sense.

    Almost works. Again, Spike suffers from an incoherence here, threads that just don't come together. But it's some of the most alive he's been as a filmmaker this millenium. Some enjoyably brash and confrontational stuff here.

    This movie is incredibly bad. The more I think about it over time, this may be the worst movie ever

    Very different film, but I really liked it and the movie talk about an important theme in our society.

    I wanted to love this movie -- and I loved the spirit of it -- a rally against the forces that seek to stereotype, marginalize, and oppress Black communities. That said, I didn't love it.

    This movie was very intriguing...I thought the main focus on stopping the violence was an success. I love spike lee with his mental thinking...I will tell everyone about this....

    Clever movie but, the rhyming was a little elementary at times. Great idea of expounding this movie from the original literary piece!!! That bed scene almost to the end was SUPER LAME!!!
