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.

While films about one night of stand-up have never pleased me, I rather enjoyed this raunchy yet self lambasting piece of work by Martin Lawrence. While joking about his life, he also jokes about love and child birth. Lawrence's salty language proves to be nothing more than a colorful backdrop to his overall message about life. Sometimes you get kicked while you are down, but you can always get back up from the trials and tribulations of life. If you can look through the language, Lawrence's physical antics on stage make this film worth watching.
