I had heard some pretty horrible things about this movie but i love
Anthony Anderson so i decided to give it a shot. Kings Rasom is a
comedy about a rich man named Malcom King (Anthony Anderson) who
decides to get a divorce to avoid giving his wife a divorce settlement.
I never knew how being kidnapped would help achieve this but were just
led to believe that somehow this will work. He enlists his girlfriends
(Regina Hall) aid to help him who has the IQ of a raising and calls her
creepy convict of a brother to help her (played by the brilliant
Unfortunately 2 more sets of people get the same idea of kidnapping
him, at the same time what are the odds on that? You have the
disgruntled employee who was passed up for a vice president position
and you have a lovable looser who is stepped on by Malcolm king.
Kings Ransom does have some funny moments and interesting turns. But
allot of things fall flat. Were supposed to believe that a man who
built a company would make his bimbo girlfriend vice president? So many
coincidences? The feds don't get involved when a millionaire gets
kidnapped? My experience with the film was bipolar. At the begging i
was hating it, then i started liking it, hated it, loved it, and in the
end disappointed. Its as if the script self destructed being pulled in
so many directions at once it just gave out. The ending was tagged on,
character disappeared, had no purpose or just got lost in the shuffle.
Quite frankly if this was rewritten I think it actually could have been
up there with kidnapping classics like "Ruthless People" but instead
its just one more movie for the bargain bin.
