I was pretty surprised to find this was just so entertaining.

Ryan O'Neal gets more laughs in a few scenes than Chris Rock managed in all of Head of State.

Malibu's Most Wanted absconds with a simplistic but imaginative plot and elevates it beyond the realm of sketch comedy into legitimate cinematic territory - for real, y'all.

I laughed during the whole movie...the trick to stupid comedy is earnestness - these guys have that out the wazoo.

B-Rad is a harmless, lovable guy... something that can't be said for the characters played by superstars Queen Latifah and Steve Martin, who appear on the next screen over.

If you're looking for something artistic and brilliantly conceived, I suggest you search elsewhere. But there's something to be said for a straight sitcom flick that delivers the laughs.

Most Wanted isn't aiming for social commentary, but it isn't too difficult to enjoy its good-natured humor.

In Malibu's Most Wanted, Jamie Kennedy's white suburban rapper persona makes a smooth leap from television skit to big screen.

Purposely and often brazenly politically incorrect, it is essentially a one-joke film, but that joke happens to be about race in America, a subject that resonates long after the quick laughs are gone.

This might be the first movie about player-haters that's not hateful itself.

Kennedy skewers the stereotypes that Bringing Down the House merely regurgitated and he plunges into the social satire that Head of State merely skimmed.

Malibu gets to the heart of the manner by showing that sometimes Blackness is just an act - a collection of style, slang and movement being packaged and sold to everyone via three-minute music videos.

Despite being a one-trick pony with a horrible ad campaign, this is one of the funniest flicks of 2003!

Yes, it's dumb and yes, it's a 15-minute skit stretched out to 80 minutes, but I have to admit it -- it is very funny.

Kennedy and the filmmakers (including a director with the amusing moniker of John Whitesell) ask us to understand that B-Rad is, in his own way, genuine, even though the character's about as believable and subtle as Jar Jar Binks.
