Goofs

When Johnny ( Damon Wayans ) takes the job memo off the locked bulletin board, you can see some spelling errors. The line "Positions Available" has a error. The word is spelled "Availble". The 2nd error is under the "Building Engineer" position. The word maintenance is misspelled. It is spelled "Maintaince". The 3rd and final one is under the "Data Processing" title."Programing" should have 2 "M's". After all the movie was done before spell check was invented. See more »

Decent movie
26 February 2009 | by (Corpus Christi, Texas) – See all my reviews

Motivated by my other weeks viewing of The Last Boy Scout (8 out of 10), I decided to follow up with another Damon Wayans film, this one directed by Peter MacDonald, the same man who did Rambo III of all films (quite a genre leap!). It is basically a middle of the road Romantic-Action-Comedy date film, the type that were churned out by the truckload during the early 1990's. R rated, so it dates this film a little bit, as the romantic-action-comedy genre is almost 100% exclusively a PG-13 genre for at least the last 10 years.

The film stars a moderately funny Damon Wayans (not his best) as a street wise guy trying to get 'mo money' by applying for a minimum wage desk job, as well as snag a girl. But things are never that simple, and his supposedly boring low paying job leads him into the middle of a laughable crime plot. The film also co-stars his annoying, goofy and much less funny younger brother Marlon Wayans (who always reminds me of a C-list celebrity in the Eddie Griffin style). I didn't recognize any of the other cast. The movie was written by Damon Wayans though, which is worth noting.

This is an average film at best, not unenjoyable, but certainly forgettable save for a couple funny scenes (very much in an In Living Color skit-com style). Every date movie cliché is here too, including the up-tight boyfriend, the fat and lovable comic relief, and the crime-caper sub-plot. Worth viewing only once for Wayans' Brothers fans, but otherwise not worth a DVD/VHS effort. But if it is on TV, check it out.
