This was one of the worst movies ever!
19 March 2005 | by basketballgirl878See all my reviews

Don't waste your time or money to sit through this dumb movie. Vin Diesel can not do comedy! He needs to stick to the movies where he only has a line or two. Not only does this movie have no plot to follow but it doesn't explain anything. There are no funny moments. I have no clue why people call this a comedy. It was very random but not in a good way. It was also cliché and very predictable. This movie tries to make Vin Diesel look tough and macho but he's no where near that. This is not a good movie take your family to see. I suggest you skip this movie. This movie tries way too hard. I am utterly disgusted that I wasted six dollars of my hard-earned money and two horrible hours of my valuable time on this piece of trash disguised as a 'comedy movie'. Ha.
