As Carl Black gets the opportunity to move his family out of Chicago in hope of a better life, their arrival in Beverly Hills is timed with that city's annual purge, where all crime is legal for twelve hours.
Darryl Witherspoon is a young black college student who wants to win annual junior analyst competition, which can land him a job in a big brokerage company. He becomes a guinea pig for the drug developed at the college which is promised to heighten all senses by ten times.Written by
During the scene where Matthew Lillard's character thinks that Darryl has suffered an overdose, his friends who follow him in the room suggest that he needs a shot of adrenaline to the heart. This is a reference to Pulp Fiction (1994), in which Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) suffers an overdose and is given a shot of adrenaline to restart her heart. NOTE: This method would not actually work if someone suffered an overdose. See more »

Just like any one of a hundred fart-joke inspired comedies trundled out every year this movie has it's moments and is at times very funny. Wayans is pretty good mainly because he can be ridiculous without over-acting and therefore becoming annoying. However, there is nothing here that you haven't seen before and to know exactly what's going to happen before it happens becomes tiresome. If you want low-budget comedy you'd be better off watching the inspired Ski School 2 or Happy Gilmore and give this one a miss.
