The film opens with Barry White's 1974 hit single You're the First, the Last, My Everything. Throughout the film, Chris Tucker's character makes references to the song - including the scene where he proposes a toast and recites the lyrics. See more »
Franklin purports to be Vic Damone Jr when meeting Guy. Guy deduces he's from Damone's marriage to Diahann Carroll. Damone married Carroll in 1987. If they had had any children, the oldest would have been 9 years old and Guy, who claimed to know Vic well would have realized Franklin was much to old to be Vic Damone Jr. See more »

How many buddy films must Hollywood churn out? A mildly entertaining, but repetitive flick for a late-night, TBS watch. It's odd how Charlie Sheen went from starring in one of the best war films of all time (Platoon) to silly movies like this. There are some laughs here, but most of the "comedy" is centered around Tucker's stereotypical "urban blackness". Chris Tucker's only role in this movie (and others) is so that middle-class, white people can laugh at those silly black people.
Sheen is a local TV reporter whose report on a local hustler (Tucker) helps get him arrested. When Tucker's character is framed for a murder he didn't commit, he turns to Sheen for help.
If there's nothing else on television, give it a shot, but don't spend money on it. I recommend the similar, but better (still by no means fine cinema, but funnier and more entertaining than Money Talks) Rush Hour, also starring Tucker along with Jackie Chan.
