Did You Know?


In the flashback scene where Smokey is in the car with Hector and his friend, two men can be seen sitting on a block wall in the background. The men were residents of the neighborhood who wanted to be difficult towards the production staff, knowing they couldn't tell them what to do on their property. They remained in the shot despite offers from the staff which included compensation or a walk-on role in the film. See more »


When Smokey calls Big Worm after getting paged, he uses Craig's phone and dials 9 numbers to make the call - too many digits. See more »

One of the funniest movies of all time!---10/10
26 October 2004 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

When someone asks me which movie i have seen the most times, i have to answer Friday. I know the movie pretty much verbatim, and have seen it well over 30 times. Chris Tucker is one of the funniest people ever. This is his best performance, followed closely by Rush Hour. There are so many funny moments in this movie it would be impossible to name them all here. My favorites would have to be when Smokey meets his blind date, who turns out to be fat and bald, and the scenes where Deebo confronts Smokey and Craig, played by Ice Cube. The movie has a hilarious supporting cast, including John Witherspoon, Tiny Lister, and Bernie Mac. Critics don't know anything. If you ever have a chance to see this and enjoy urban comedy and Chris Tucker, don't even hesitate to watch. 10/10
