    All About the Benjamins has: flash, cash, and enough videogenic eye candy to make ''Miami Vice'' look like ''Little House on the Prairie.''

    It's fun to watch the stocky, scowling Ice Cube and skinny, jittery Epps play off each other; they click on screen.

    Oddly, the most appealing thing about the movie is that in an age of ever-escalating special effects, it's refreshingly low-tech, more like a '70s action movie than a modern-day one.

    Boilerplate crime comedy.
  5. Strings of four-letter words are a poor substitute for dialogue, and it's not until the movie is almost over that someone realizes there's no reason, other than assumed macho posturing, for Cube's character to go after these bad guys so hard.
  6. 30
    A witless, bloody, unpleasant mismatched-buddy movie.
  7. 20
    The comedy is tepid, the action is dopey and even the violence is boring and occasionally cruel.

    Why do people seem to like this? It's just a run of the mill, action movie with african american cultural overtones to make it seem edgy.Why do people seem to like this? It's just a run of the mill, action movie with african american cultural overtones to make it seem edgy. Quite frankly it's not in any way shape or form edgy, and it's action scenes are far from entertaining, the director must have been smoking something along with the actors for this. Expand
