Had me laughing from beginning to end
21 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. Ironically, I didn't want to see this movie. I mean how many movies can you see dealing with drugs and thieves? This movie had me laughing from the beginning to the end. The ending was very surprising and not how I thought it would turn out which was very refreshing. Great line up and chemistry between the actors. Mike Epps and Avon (I know thats his Wire name but hey that mind as well be his real name because thats how he will always be remembered) were great together. Mos Def also surprised me at how funny he could be. The Latin chick, although served her purpose as the eye candy, acting could have been a lot better. I was happy to see her since she is so pretty but what was the purpose of Lauren London's character? With everything said, the summary does the movie no justice. I was laughing the hardest in the theater. Will definitely get the DVD.
