Hilarious
12 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My girlfriend and I went to view this movie and we laughed throughout the whole movie. Being in my mid 30's and her being in her mid 20's we found this movie as comical as In Living Color. The other reviews posted with negative feedback by the way they write seems they don't have a scene of humor or poor quality of judgment by saying 22 jump street with all the homosexual hidden humor was comparable. This movie is a must see. Both actors fit the part perfectly. One educated less rick taker and the other the complete opposite. One entry posted mentions added Jack Black, wow that sounds lame and boring since his movies all put me to sleep. School of Rock, ya so boring. The diversity in the movie was a great idea. Its refreshing to see an educated Black man on screen and not portrayed as the stereotypical non sense of this world. Dwayne Wayne Jr's character mentioned a reference about "scaring brothers" which was uncalled for but guessing writers added to relate to ignorant public that relate to that comment.
