Quotes

Martin Lawrence: Here goes all these rumors writin' about me. I see on the paper, one of'em says "Martin tries to jump out of a plane using his jacket as a parachute." Now ain't that some bullshit! As I'm trying to get my life together, they're gonna write that bullshit. I know damn well you can't jump out no plane using your jacket as a parachute. Shit, I know you got to use your pants.

garbage....what else can I say?
18 January 2003 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I like Martin as an actor. He has the ability to be funny. But what was he thinking about when he made this nonsense? I laughed mabye 3 times during this embarrassing performance. Martin seemed to be saying whatever came to his mind as he went, no type of flow. I have no problem with the profanity because when used right, it adds to the humor. But using "M*\_}rF_=*r" every other word doesn't take away from the fact that the material is weak. Then he also started with the "Let's give it up to the ladies" routine to try to gain support for his tired performance. And what was up with the slow pace? Bad enough the gag he's telling isn't funny, but now he want's to drag it out, as if he's waiting for more laughs. I had alot of high expectations for this movie. I was expecting to laugh, not wince. If Martin wanted to answer the critics, he shouldn't have 'wrapped' it up in a movie marketed as a Comedy, and have his fans pay the price. I give this movie NO STARS. Next time I hope he leaves the old, old routines at home and hope he actually practices before he performs.
