Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Ice Cube cowrote, produced, and stars in this action caper. Bucum (Cube) is a bounty hunter (get it?) with dreams of big money. Reggie (Mike Epps) is a small-time grifter who also has dreams of big money and is at the top of Bucum's list to boot. Yep, you guessed it: tough guy/funny guy buddy flick. All About the Benjamins is pretty much a by-the-numbers piece of work. There's plenty of macho posturing, gunfire, big-ticket items exploding, and curse words inserted into the script in lieu of actual punch lines. The plot has holes big enough to drive a locomotive through, but then again the plot isn't really the point. Epps's attempts at wacky comedy wear thin early on, but Ice Cube does a fine job, and together they do make quite a few moments hit. Best recommended for when you want turn-your-brain-off excitement. --Ali Davis

Product Description

Ice Cube and Mike Epps are the driving force of this high style, high impact, action/comedy. One's a top dog bounty hunter, the other a two-bit hustler. Add to the mix a botched diamond heist, a lost sinning lottery ticket, and one thing becomes clear...that it's All About the Benjamins.

5.0 out of 5 stars I give you "BENJAMINS", you give me funny! September 30, 2002
Format:DVD
Here is a movie that you don't have to take seriously to have a good time. Ice Cube as a bounty hunter was really on the money, because he had the grit and savvy to pull it off, but the show belonged to Mike Epps, who played the con artist. Epps is no Chris Tucker, but he's also not afraid to go the distance, and that is what makes his appearances memorable. This time around, Mike portrays a con-artist with more on his plate than his latest scam. Not only is he being chased by Cube, but he makes the mistake of stumbling onto a murder involving 26 million dollars in diamonds. On top of that, he loses his wallet with the killers. Scary enough they know where you live, but what if the wallet contained a lottery ticket that your girlfriend paid for with her hard earned money, and it hit for sixty million? Throughout this flick, both actors looked like they were having a ball. If your looking for a load of comedy mixed with a little mayhem, this could be for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay ride. April 20, 2002
By A Customer
Tell them about the Benjamins Baby"
What's it about? Trying to stop some criminals responsible for a Diamond heist. There's a bounty hunter, Bookman (Ice Cube) who wants to open his own PI firm so he can make more money. However, he needs cash for start up. So he works hard and always brings in his man. One day in the pursuit of a wanted small time con-man, Reggie (Mike Epps), he stumbles across a diamond heist forcing himself and the "criminal" to become allies. Along the way Reggie's girlfriend, Gina, and Pam, Bookman's co-worker, get involved in the pursuit of "The Benjamins".
"All about the Benjamins" just wasn't my kind of movie, without Valarie Rae Miller's presence, I wouldn't have even seen it. So perhaps my review is a little bias. "All about the Benjamins" is a comedy with elements of a caper. The movie is basically cookie cutter bad guys, bag 'em shoot em up, money (Benjamins), ice (diamonds), and Cube getting to play tough guy with a silly comedian side kick that seems to be akin to Chris Tucker (who of course made his mark with Ice Cube in Friday). Oh yeah, and a couple of girls for the guys. It's an Ice Cube movie, I didn't
really expect Oscar winning performances. It's a nice movie to rent and sit around and watch with your friends for a couple laughs. Being a Dark Angel fan, I had to support Valarie Rae's movie. I probably would have ignored the film without her. Anyway, Pam (Valarie's character) is only one of three designated girls. The other two being the villain'slove toy and Reggie's (Mike Epps) long term girlfriend Gina (Menedes). The women are downplayed, even villain's girlfriend who gets to be the only tough girl in the movie. Gina is a gutsy girl next door and Pam is ready for adventure and offering to be Bookman's partner.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't stop laughing!! August 25, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This film is one of the funniest films I have seen all year. Ice Cube and Mike Epps work so well off of each other. Every scene they shared had a little something different to make us laugh. It's not like most buddy comedies where they take one funny idea and play it out making the film boring. These two will having you laughing from beginning to end!
And speaking of the beginning of the film, we get a great performance from my favorite actor, Anthony Michael Hall. Now I can honestly say I've seen AMH do it all. We finally get to see AMH play a trashy trailer park thuggin' blackish red hair sportin' ex-con with a flare for using the current slang like "cheese". " You don't get no real cheese anyway.."
" BABY! Get his ... baby, get him! Shoot that motha' ...! "
And I must say Ice Cube found a very clever way to use a tazer when trying to subdue Lil' J (AMH) This movie is non-stop laughs! Mike Epps is so goofy and it mixes so well with Ice Cube's hard core visage!
This movie is worth buying! It's a great film to watch with friends! Throw a party and have this movie handy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good fun March 10, 2002
Once again Ice Cube delivers a funny, upbeat comedy that is terrific! The humor does not denigrate or "put down," any group. The characters are lovable, but real.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great action-comedy June 3, 2002
By A Customer
I thought this movie was hilarious. Mike Epps and Ice Cube are a good team in this movie, combining comedy with action. I recommend this to own on DVD. Judging by the previews I thought this movie was going to be about another action heist resulting in a lot of money at the end, but to my surprise, Mike Epp made me and the whole theater laugh from beginning to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars SIMPLY OUTRAGEOUS!!! July 28, 2002
Format:DVD
Putting it in simple words, if Mike Epps is going to be in the movie, you know its going to be funny. Once again, Mike Epps has put his talents to work and made us all laugh who went to see the movie. This is a must own DVD for those who like to laugh. Let's not forget about Ice Cube either, he is a great actor. It's not everyday you see a rapper/actor, etc. who can actually act. I must recommend this DVD to everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars BOOK-EM November 27, 2010
Format:DVD
First off, there is no one in the movie named Benjamin. Benjamin comes from Benjamin Franklin, whose face is on a $100 bill. The opening scene is Ice Cube, as a bounty hunter (Bukum, pronounced Book-em), going into a red neck trailer park to capture his bounty. The yahoo has the proverbial Confederate flag hanging from his wall and is watching old slightly racist Loony Tunes. As it turns out this is an NRA trailer park and Ice Cube is shot at by the yahoo's girlfriend (foot is in a cast) as well as some old lady next door. As he collects his bounty we discover he is not in full employment, but semi-freelances. The secretary at the bail bond's place wants to be Ice Cube's partner, although he would rather go alone. His next gig is to bring in Mike Epps, a petty con man. During the chase Epps and Bukum end up at a murder scene over some diamonds. Now to make this more interesting it seems Epps has a winning lottery ticket worth $60 million, but through a series of events it ends up in the hands of the murderers. Ice Cube is leery about Epps' story and uses him to go after the murderers.

The movie is funny and keeps moving. The character of Epps as a talkative, cowardly, pretending to be brave con artist compliments the series role of Ice Cube. The movie drops the MF bomb and frequent use of the "N" word. Gansta rap as a background is used 3 times as far as I could tell: opening credits, ending credits, and the climax scene.
