Vote now to get it in the bottom 100
7 May 2004 | by (Isle of Skankilly, Scotland) – See all my reviews

I disagree with some of the other comments that the film isn't so bad it's funny, I thought this was so bad it was hilarious! Watching Big Pun wearing a Big Pun T shirt and mumbling along reading his lines from a board - I could barely stop laughing through the whole thing. Luckily the final (brutal) cut makes the movie just under an hour. Watch it if you get the chance.

1/10 for acting, directing, story

10/10 for the mumbling fat man

Register your vote, this deserves a bottom 100 place. Just confirms that rappers and movies generally don't mix well!
