Good fun!!!! Funny! Funny! Funny! I could believe the rating from the critics! But then again most critics hate movies like this, you know, the kind that make you laugh. It's a slapstick comedy, not a drama! For a comedy, it's a great movie! You won't be disappointed!
I thought the movie was pretty good. I definitely think there is a gender bias in the ratings for this film. Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon have good chemistry and they both are entertaining to watch and the car chases were fun and the slapstick comedy as well as the plot on how they caught the robbers. Maybe some male reviewers did not like the fact that the movie was more centered around women than men. I have found that on this site that movies that focus more on women than men are not rated as highly. At any rate, this movie was entering and enjoyable to watch. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't have a problem with women being protagonists in a movie instead of arm candy or mother nurturers (madonna/whore roles)
