Movie Reviews

Good sweet lord.

"Not since the birth of Paris Hilton has such an unholy atrocity as this movie been unleashed on the world. Seeing as I don't have enough PTO to list what's wrong with this movie I'll list what's right: absolutely nothing. If someone you know puts this on, gouge your eyes out and smear the blood on the tv screen to prevent others from being subjected to it."
It was funny sometimes, but not enough times

"I happened to be passing through the channels on cable and came across this movie and saw Anthony and decided to watch. All I can say is Thank Goodness I saw this on cable. It had a few funny scenes like when Anthony was bossy to Jay, but most of the movie didn't make any sense. I mean what are the odds of 3 people thinking of kidnapping somebody on the same night, especially since one of the culprits was himself. Too farfetched and not funny enough to be given more than 2 stars. Sorry Anthony."

"Malcolm King is a wealthy and arrogant businessman whose ex-wife to be has plans to take him for everything he's worth in their divorce settlement. Determined to avoid losing his fortune to her, Malcolm plans his own kidnapping with the help of his dim-witted mistress and her ex-con brother. Unfortunately for Malcolm, he is not the only one with a kidnapping plot. This movie is a silly slapstick comedy. You shouldn't watch this movie expecting to be moved to anything but laughter.
"A Noire Comedy"

"2/09/06 Although it was a "spoof" on black culture(at the corporate level)(with a Caucasian Alzheimer granny & her confused Causian grandson thrown in for good measure) and it had no redeeming values (unless if one looked for the subtle messages) , due to an excellent acting cast/crew lead by Anthony Anderson & a few of its "this can't be happening scenes" ,it's worth the viewing."
