Storyline

Debo has escaped from prison and is looking to get revenge on Craig. So Craig's dad takes him to Rancho Cucamonga to hide out with his Uncle Elroy and cousin Day-Day, who moved to the suburbs after winning the lottery. But once he gets there, Craig and Day-Day have a set of suburban misadventures that make his South Central experiences look tame. Written by <jgp3553@excite.com>

your reviewer is culturally ignorant...
30 May 2003 | by whooizitSee all my reviews

... or else how would you mistake the mexican-american characters (this is LA, remember?) for puerto ricans?

There are plot and story weaknesses, but they don't take away from the enjoyment. The movie is funny - that's all it aspires to be and that's enough.
