  1. Generic hip-hop soundtrack? Check. Aerial stock footage of milieu? Check. Hardy-har homophobia and misogyny? Check. Emasculated sub-Gump white dude played by Jay Mohr? Double check.
  2. 30
    Devotes its first two acts to establishing the comic monstrousness of all its characters.
  3. Reviewed by: Justin Chang

    An innocuous abduction of viewers' time, if nothing else, King's Ransom is an appealingly cast but terminally bland farce.
  4. Charlie Murphy's hilarious gay gangsta, relegated to the filmic down low, provides a modicum of depth in an otherwise supremely shallow effort.
  5. A desperately strained comedy.
  6. The comic equivalent of a lump of coal.
