Previews don't show what the movie is really about. I thought it was a little too long in getting to the real plot of the movie...got a little bored, to be honest. Eddie Griffen, as the handicapped sidekick, stole the show, in my opinion. I thought there would be more "hero action" so I was a little disappointed, but still worth watching.

The previews made this seem like a different kind of movie, so I went in with some expectations. The movie turned out being something else, but still it is a good comedy that kept my interest even with the flawed lead character. Eddie Griffin stole the show. He was likeable, funny and wiser than his friend with the "gift." The film takes place post-Katrina, and attempts to show that despite what we're told, there is no rebuilding for the less fortunate residents that stuck it out. I didn't know, for one thing, that Stephen Dorff is known for making making bad movies. Had I such low expectations, I would still have liked this movie.
