She ain't no bitch, huh? Oh, I see - you "like" this girl? Shit, man, come on! She tricked you: just another ho manipulating your sorry ass to get what she wants.

If you think the movie was supposed to be serious, you missed the point...
I had absolutely no idea that this movie was supposed to be a silly, spoofy action film when I saw it at the theater. The first 10 minutes makes this perfectly clear. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie for just being "guilty pleasure" escapist entertainment. Yes the movie is silly and corny - but that was the intent of the film.
Its more than understandable that this movie isn't for everybody, either you love it or hate it. However, if you watched the movie and took it seriously (ie the breakdancing during the first 'hit'), then you definitely missed the point. 8 out of 10.
