  1. Interspersed between the misogyny and flatulence jokes apparently left over from Pooh's co-written script for "Friday," there's a story about an ex-con.
  2. 31
    It's a chilling piece of legal hysteria, and ripe for nasty farce. But Pooh plays it all for buffoonish pratfalls and fart jokes.
  3. 25
    Most of the humor is aimed at 14-year-olds.

    Exuberantly rude and crude, but generally more frantic than genuinely funny.

    The bad news is that it's also vile, not to mention sophomoric and unfunny.
  6. 10
    For every jab at hypocrisy in law enforcement or in the media's crime coverage...there's a scene's worth of uninflected scatology or misogyny.
  7. 0
    Three strikes maybe, but no stars and no thumbs up (except the one way, way up its own ass).

    My roommate and I watched this while hungover one afternoon, and both laughed pretty hard. It's a dumb movie, but is so stupid, you can't help but laugh. Expand
