The brand of humour relies on shock value, but every now and then it will hit you with something clever that comes along like a slice of pizza in the middle of a low carb diet.

Coffee & Kareem's predictable twists involving bent cops and gangsters who aren't as tough as they seem are reasonably entertaining, but it's difficult to shake the suspicion that this film is fundamentally misjudged.

Coffee & Kareem is a film that consistently takes the low road with no regard for the potholes it finds along the way.

A buddy romp that plays like "Training Day" meets "Role Models," only nowhere near as realistic as the former and nowhere near as funny as the latter. No, "Coffee & Kareem" is way too raunchy.

This loathsome movie has a perverted fixation on boys being sexualized ... There isn't much of a plot to Coffee & Kareem, which seems to exist for the purpose of making a Black boy look as ghetto, ignorant, and nasty as possible.

It does exactly as promised and never pretends to be anything else. [Full review in Spanish]

How was this movie really born from a pun? That's bold, and that's awful.

I got a few laughs in it...I'm caught between it scraping by, but just the premise alone was lazy and it feels like they made all this because of a pun...

...a familiar setup that's employed to pervasively erratic effect by Dowse...

Movies like Coffee & Kareem just leave you wishing that Netflix would choose to invest in more interesting and inventive projects instead of wasting its assets and its subscribers' time on such dismal dullness.

Unfortunately, Helms's schtick is painfully unfunny, much like that of his pint-sized co-star Terrence Little Gardenhigh, whose character's casual homophobia and dropping of f-bombs isn't cute just because he's supposed to be 12...

That's what drove me nuts about the new comedy Coffee & Kareem; there's genuinely funny stuff on the margins that kept getting pushed back by a tired central premise.

The stranger choice is letting much of the supporting cast show they're willing to play along, but bench them for much of the movie.

A profoundly irritating, cacophonous mess.

Unbelievably bad, what was everyone involved even thinking?
Apr 14, 2020
Over-the-top violence, language in moronic buddy comedy.

Look: Is your bar as low as your energy right now? Does a new buddy-cop movie sound diverting enough? You got Netflix? Choose this over the endless, listless Spenser Confidential.

Things quickly escalate into chaos and stay there, but they do so in ways that are not quite funny enough to make you forget the implausibilities or the way serious stuff is played for bad jokes.

"Coffee & Kareem" is an unfunny, insensitive, exploitative mess that is awful from even the very first sip.

...come on, aren't we a bit old for all these gags...
