This movie was Hilarious!
6 November 2001 | by blue850See all my reviews

I think this movie was cool that I watched again. In fact we liked the movie very well that i call my friend Black and he calls me blue A.J. Johnson and Master P's movie was cool doesn't deserve to win any awards but it's still funny. I recommend it to hip-hop fans or anyone who just likes anyone in the cast. I don't recommend it to females cause they'll take offense to a certain part (I am not going to tell you what it is, you'll have to find out yo'self).
