Trivia

The song played in the background at the bachelor party at Kid's aunt's house is Dr. Dre's 1992 hit "Fuck Wit Dre Day (And Everybody's Celebratin')". Anthony Johnson, who plays a butcher in this film, appeared in the video of that song as "Sleazy-E", an impostor of Dre's rival and N.W.A. bandmate Eazy-E. See more »

Far better than you think
15 April 2005 | by richard-731See all my reviews

I don't really care how bad people assume this film is, to me it is somewhat of a classic.

Bernie Mac steals the show from his opening scene as the dubious uncle Vester. Always about ten seconds away from losing his temper and revealing his true psychopathic side. This alone brings me and a fair few others close to tears.

Add to this Showboat and the cast of ex-con catering and defy virtually anyone not to need picking up from the floor. Hysterics are guaranteed.

Not big, not clever and certainly not in any top 100 lists, but a film that gets better each time I see it.
