Full of very obvious spoofery, and funnier in concept than in execution.

If you really want to appreciate this film, go see all the hood movies from the 90s - good and bad.

There's maybe three or four half-decent chuckles to be found in this otherwise interminable 90-minute mega-chore.

The thin plot is merely the frame for gags, and there are more a few good ones here.

Outrageous is the key word here. In many successful scenes, the Wayans deftly play on our assumptions and cliches.

If I see one more movie featuring that current favorite of obnoxious movie stereotypes -- the pair of abrasive Asian convenience store owners -- I'm not going to even going to think twice before getting up and leaving the theatre.

Too many gags fall flat, or are cheap and sleazy instead of clever and witty.

Rude, crude and outrageous.

Things might be bad, the movie suggests, but they're not so bad you can't laugh.

The gags -- like most of the Wayanses' humor -- range from astute satire to lowest-common-denominator yucks.
