Plot Summary
Finds Craig (Ice Cube) and Day-Day (Mike Epps) back in the old neighborhood where it all began. It's Christmas time and a ghetto Santa Claus breaks into their run-down apartment, stealing all their presents, along with anything else he can stuff into his sack, including the rent money hidden in their stereo speakers. Their only hope to not get evicted before Christmas is to take jobs as security guards at a local mall, where they learn some comic lessons about the true meaning of the holidays.

  • I guess there's an audience for it, and Ice Cube has paid dues in better and more positive movies ("Barbershop" among them). But surely laughs can be found in something other than this worked-over material. show more

  • Loaded with priceless encounters that would seem incongruous in any other movie but play here as low-comedy facts of some parts of black life. show more

  • The movie's 85 minutes speed merrily along on a steady stream of outrageous antics, entertaining performances from seasoned pros (like John Witherspoon, as Craig's dyspeptic dad), and unforgettable introductions to new talent. show more
