One candidate for the presidency dies in an accident a couple of weeks before the election. Meanwhile the alderman Mays Gilliam becomes a hero when he rescues a woman and her cat from an old house that would blow up. However his fiancee Kim does not pay his bills and dumps him, and Gilliam loses everything including his fancy car. When Senator Bill Arnot sees the news on television, he plots a scheme with the party advisors Martin Geller and Debra Lassiter to invite Mays to be the party nominee and lose the election for the other candidate, Vice-President Brian Lewis. Four years later, he would be the candidate and would have the chance of winning the election. Mays has a terrible beginning of campaign but when his older brother Mitch Gilliam meets him in Chicago, he advises Mays to be himself. Will he have the chance to be the first African American President of the USA?Written by

[on a bullhorn outside Lewis's office]
Yo, Lewis! Your mother's ass is so big, when she sits down, she's three feet taller! Yo, Lewis!
Sir, I think it's time we prepare for a debate.
Aw, give me one good reason I should debate that jerk.
He talked about your mother, sir!
[Lewis's mother enters and slaps him]
Are you going to just let him talk about me like that?

Chris Rock is usually very funny but not in this flick. Unfortunately for this movie the only funny parts were shown in the trailers for the film. He should have either stuck to just acting or directing but not both. I sat through this movie and the whole time I was thinking that if this was on regular television I would have changed the channel because it was so boring. I didn't think anything about it was unique or very funny, in fact I never laughed once! The story is a re-hash of all the other movies that have already been made about hometown boy makes good and then tries to fix up the old neighborhood he feels loyal to. Definitely NOT worth renting.
