Out of control
3 March 2003 | by whoTheFuqRyouSee all my reviews

I was a little suspicious at first but when I finally saw it, I was glad it wasn't like Next Friday which was kinda dull. This one was funny at first then got really out of control at the end, Clifton Powell was the surprise comedic performance in this as Pinky - g he had me laughing pretty hard but it's John Witherspoon and Mike Epps who really made this funny... This was hella fun but not better than Friday, still good though
