Hilarious
2 June 2002 | by SMLA11See all my reviews

Chris Tucker and Charlie Sheen are excellent and hilarious in this great movie. Almost all of the jokes that Chris Tucker made I laughed at. He proved once again, after Friday fame, that he is a great comic. Charlie sheen does really good in this one, too.

Overall the whole movie is a great comedic flick and I definitely, definitely recommend this to the average person. Rating 10 out of 10.
