    The performances are pretty good--with the exception of the nauseatingly sweet H. Hunter Hall (the son of the director) as Junior and a one-note scowl from rapper The Game, who plays Meat--and the screenplay, by Hall and Darin Scott, has some genuinely funny moments. show more

    Sometimes excessiveness and implausibility are virtues in disguise. Movies this enjoyable don't come about by accident. show more
