Led by Griffin's smartly nuanced performance and enthusiasm, the cast has a lot of fun with the material.

Cannot stop laughing with movie!!

One of the funniest movies I have ever seen, kept me laughing from begining to end. Great satire of a lot of other movies.

This movie was so funny I just had to watch it twice! The plot was hilarious, and I like how each side gets their own fair share of both laughs and discrimination.

I laughed til it hurt. Fast paced, lots of action, tons of gags. I don't understand why there wasn't more noise about this movie in 2002, it's one of the year's hippest. It's Shaft meets Austin Powers meets 007. Eddie Griffin was born to play this role. He hits the ground running and the rest of the gang make up an unlikely crew but they all hit their mark and make the movie a real happening.
