Darryl Witherspoon is a young black college student who wants to win annual junior analyst competition, which can land him a job in a big brokerage company. He becomes a guinea pig for the drug developed at the college which is promised to heighten all senses by ten times. Written by
During the scene where Matthew Lillard's character thinks that Darryl has suffered an overdose, his friends who follow him in the room suggest that he needs a shot of adrenaline to the heart. This is a reference to Pulp Fiction (1994), in which Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) suffers an overdose and is given a shot of adrenaline to restart her heart. NOTE: This method would not actually work if someone suffered an overdose. See more »

Yes. This movie is predictable. You do not have to watch very long before you may guess almost everything that will happen, and sure enough, it does. No surprises anywhere. In addition, as in many other movies which Marlon Wayans appears in, a lot of the jokes is pretty juvenile and of "low" quality, focusing on stuff you thought were funny when you were five years old and very tired. The again, some of the jokes, still being juvenile, is actually funny. So, as it turns out, as a whole, the movie is entertaining. Not the best comedy ever made, but I have seen a lot worse too.
Wayans does his stuff as can be expected, not raising any eyebrows (for his performance anyway) nor disappointing. However, personally, I hoped for David Spade to have a bigger role. In my opinion he is a very good comedian but does not have any chance to show it in this movie.
To conclude, do not have the greatest expectations, sit back and enjoy.
