I agree that the movie is laced with profanity--but then again, some of the profanity does add humor and I am an adult! Enjoyed the sets and costuming, loved the poke they took at the old gangster movies, the sting made me laugh thinking the mobsters got what was coming to them. Perhaps the most colorful character for me was was Della Reese and her interactions with Eddie Murphy--had me roaring. I gave it a 6, but maybe I need to change that to a 7.
