    Mike Clark USA Today

    Think of a B-grade "Bulworth" with lesser talents than A-listers Warren Beatty and Halle Berry. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Think Jerry Lewis doing Eminem, or maybe it's Eminem doing Jerry Lewis (or maybe it's Pauly Shore doing Vanilla Ice), and you've got B-Rad. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    An unerring sign of the awfulness of Malibu's Most Wanted is a series of the least funny outtakes ever appended to a movie's closing credits. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The comedy is often crass and crude, but it makes telling points about how much of "race" is more about the words and gestures we use than the actual colors of our skins. show more

    Chris Kaltenbach Baltimore Sun

    Malibu's Most Wanted mines a well-worn comedic vein, but does so with a consistent good humor and surprisingly deft touch. show more

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    Has laugh-out-loud moments of inspired idiocy. The problem is that this one-joke skit (done first and better by Britain's Ali G) has been given the Hamburger Helper treatment and stretched to feature length. show more
