Great Hip-Hop movie
1 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

5.2??? I saw this film was rated 5.2 so I went to watch it expecting a pretty poor film...

I WAS VERY WRONG! This film is hilarious!!Method man and Redman (suprisingly) made me laugh so much and soooo often!! Especially in the "get him" scene! It may a good movie but its definitely aimed at all you hip-hop/comedy lovers.

Essence Atkins looks HOOOT too!!!

GOOD MOVIE-great fun for all those wanting a movie...lacking a great story line but filled with loads of laughs.

8/10 is a very fair score-give the movie a try. you'll like it
