It's Worth Watching If You Have A Dirty Sense Of Humor
The only reason I gave this film a 7 out of 10 is because a flat 6 seems too low but it does feel a bit below a 7 as well. Let me explain myself first.
This movie started off very hilarious. This kid who always gets picked on finds himself trying to help women cross the streets and wound up escorting this whore to her club. I think the concept of a snot nose kid and his pet rat who's white but comes off as a ghetto raised thug and making these funny one-liners all the time was hilarious and makes the movie all worth watching.
The voices were very good and done by a very nice cast. The voices fit the personalities quite well and makes the jokes even funnier, if Junior sounded like a regular kid do you think you would've found his jokes funny or feel an innocent vibe with him? Nope! Bernie Mac and Ludicrous were my favorite appearances though, even though the others were really good.
The animation was admitting crappy but so what? You can't always judge a good film on its looks. I think it's about time someone stood up to the harsh media world and say "Hey, I can make a crappy looking film and make it hilarious!" Seriously, why would people even comment on how bad the movie is but only mention the animation. All that does is make you look stupid and push all your opinions aside for anyone who has enough common sense to know that comments like that aren't needed.
The downfall was where the comedy started to fall flat. Many may think that Weathers was the only comedy in the movie but I beg to differ. At 1st he was hilarious and had me asking for more, until I realized he is really pretty aggravating and makes his one-liner comments in every other 3 to 5 sentences. The more Weather's mouth opened, the more his jokes actually seemed to fall. By the end of the movie not only did I stop laughing at his jokes but I started getting upset by them.
Besides Weathers actually irritating me, the storyline should've ran on a gag instead of running on a story. Seriously, like I stated in this comment before, the regular concept of a shrimpy white boy experiencing the life of a pimp was funny enough but when I started to realize that there was a real storyline going on then I started to get disappointed because the jokes started failing to make me laugh, the characters were being pretty off, and the story itself was pretty stupid and fell away from what the film started off as.
With all said and done I still think this movie is worth the watch and should definitely be rented if not bought.
