Oh My God.

I was previewing the DVD last night and had to turn it off after 15
minutes. The character introductions were barely less subtle than if
they had come out and said "Hi, I'm Anthony Anderson, but today I'm
playing Malcolm King, a rich man that people hate." There was not an
ounce of subtlety. It was disgustingly awful.
I'm sure that there are people out there that like Anthony Anderson -
people who thought that the time spent on his character in Barbershop
DIDN'T distract from the main story and damage the
otherwise-entertaining film. I'm sure that there are people who don't
find his high-pitched voice grating on the ears. I'm sure there are
people who don't want to vomit at the site of him in a film. They MAY
find this film entertaining. Anybody with an ounce of taste, however,
will be turned off immediately.
Then again, people with taste would see him on the poster or DVD box
and wouldn't watch it anyway. I did it because it's my job to try and
watch this crap. You don't have that excuse. Save yourself.
O.k. I'm a black guy. And I usually grade on a curve for black
comedies, but this was the worst movie I've ever seen.
Any screenplay writer knows that you are suppose to set-up what's going
on in the movie in the first 10 minutes. How about 20 minutes later I
still didn't have a clue, then all of my friends and I walked out of a
I'm not even going to waste my time writing a plot review for this
movie, because I didn't see the whole thing. Two words: IT SUCKS!
Save your money don't rent the DVD, wait for it to come on HBO or
better yet wait 3 years until it comes on TBS and they will show it
every day if they can edit the harsh language.

Way funnier than what I thought

I saw this at a sneak peek the day before it came out and laughed a
lot! This movie is hilarious. I will be buying it on DVD when it comes
out. It's nice to go to a movie and just be able to laugh out loud and
this is definitely that type of film.
I love Anthony Anderson and I am glad he was recently cleared of all
charges in that Memphis trailer fiasco which I didn't believe in the
first place. All in all this was a very cute movie and my boyfriend and
I found ourselves reminding each other of different funny parts and
laughing about them after the movie.
Enjoy the film!
