The original announced release date was 14 March 2003. After a disastrous test screening in which half of the audience walked out, it was then pushed back to 11 July 2003. It was pushed back again to 24 October. After a very troubled production, Sony has pulled this film from their theatrical schedule entirely, suggesting that it might go direct to video or maybe even direct to the Internet via Sony's new Video on Demand service.

This is one of the few films that hits the nail on the head. They set about making a kid a pimp and they succeed, while having a laugh along the way. The choice of characters is superb, as well as being extremely well scripted. Bernie Mac was made for the part of Fruit Juice, and there was no better choice for Tony Gold than William Shatner.
With a pretty much all star cast the only things that were lacking was length (113 mins isn't long enough), and the total lack of advertisement. I stumbled across this little gem in my local video shop and only rented it to see what the deal was with having a comedy legend such as Bernie Mac teamed up with Captain Kirk. The Results? a masterpiece!
