    All About the Benjamins has: flash, cash, and enough videogenic eye candy to make ''Miami Vice'' look like ''Little House on the Prairie.''
  2. This is a movie fantasy, folks -- like James Bond, without the smarm and martinis.
  3. The strange case of a movie that clunks in every possible way but the ultimate way -- it entertains.

    Boilerplate crime comedy.
  5. Ice Cube possesses real screen presence, and it's a shame to see him squander his talents here. He and Epps made me laugh in "Next Friday." They made me squirm here.
  6. This movie, a chaotic caper film at heart, wrecks its comic tone with some moments of gruesome violence.

    It's painful watching a talented thespian diminish himself so. It's clear he did it for the Benjamins.

    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
