Childish Rotten Angry Puerile
5 April 2020 | by CelluRobSee all my reviews

A foul mouthed 12 year old black kid ("Kareem") discovers that his mother is having an affair with a 40-something white cop ("Coffee") - I think that's the humorous element done with.... The boy hates this idea so hires a local hoodlum to scare him off. This all backfires - and he has to team up with his nemesis to stay ahead of the gang and their drug-running bosses. The comedy has something in common with the hair on Sir Patrick Stewart's head; and the soundtrack is loud, noisy and almost as irritating as the constant tirades emanating from just about every mouth for 90 minutes. If this is an example of what Netflix are doing with their increased fees, then no wonder Disney+ are creaming the market just now.
