The 2nd error is under the "Building Engineer" position. The word maintenance is misspelled. It is spelled "Maintaince". The 3rd and final one is under the "Data Processing" title."Programing" should have 2 "M's". After all the movie was done before spell check was invented. See more »

A Comedy To Watch. Only To Watch !
14 November 2009 | by elshikh4See all my reviews

I watched it, and kind of liked it. But after 4 years, I ran into it in some channel, to discover that I forgot it wholly. And I'm not that someone who forgets movies that he watched. So why that happened?

It's surely related to everything this movie made, and me. Actually "me" just hated the mean personality of this movie sometimes with all the free sarcasm of the fat women, the neurologically-sick people; namely the old employee of the company with the trembling nick, and the mentally-handicapped people as well which is the ugliest bottom this movie hit.

The rest of the 2 lead's stuff wasn't funny either. There was a complete nut job evil guy, too exaggerated action scenes where Damon Wayans transforms into Batman!, let alone some things that bothered my stomach to the max; such as (Marlon Wayans) and (Almayvonne).

So, what's here to be loved? It's easy: Somehow the plot. And (Damon Wayans)'s performance. Generally, (Mo' Money) isn't a bad movie. It's just offensive at some places, unfunny at many, and have-not when it comes to any excellent factor. Still the good parts make it something to watch. But not to laugh with!
