  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. A criminally slow, all-but-laughless blaxploitation comedy.
  4. Reviewed by: Joe Leydon

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

    Could have afforded to be a little loftier and still be quite funny. Instead, it's a waste.
  6. 10
    A dumb and sloppy movie.
  7. This needlessly vulgar exercise in overuse of the n-word bills itself as a comedy. Even the outtakes over the closing credits don't live up to that.
