Storyline

Jamal and Dex are two hapless out of work actors who come to terms with reality when they realize they've been pursuing their dreams for over ten years and still haven't booked a single speaking role. When the two run out of cash and face eviction from their small apartment, they hit the pavement in search of a job. With no job experience, no skill set and little ambition, the audience gets a front row seat to this hilarious journey in which these two bad-luck prone losers can't seem to catch a break.

Not That Bad
14 October 2008 | by rk053169See all my reviews

I took at gander at this just for the hell of it & pretty much expected "crap personified".

However, I actually enjoyed this flick (albeit a bit slow and painful in the early sequences).

Maybe I expected so little that I was mesmerized by the actual effort, but I'm glad I gave it a tumble. There are a few good laughs that begin to occur halfway through the movie, and the acting by the main players was more than decent.

The "ebonics lesson" was very entertaining and the "homeless guy on the street" was hysterical, however I do believe that the editing of the shots and sequences left a wee bit to be desired.
