Customer Reviews

It had an all-star cast but this film totally bombed.
T. Winston
I remember seeing the previews of this movie, thinking to myself,"I wouldn't waste my money on that! All the funny scenes were just shown in the preview!"
Blueberry Muffin
It is very funny and has some good lessons... I would recommend this movie.

I happened to be passing through the channels on cable and came across this movie and saw Anthony and decided to watch. All I can say is Thank Goodness I saw this on cable. It had a few funny scenes like when Anthony was bossy to Jay, but most of the movie didn't make any sense. I mean what are the odds of 3 people thinking of kidnapping somebody on the same night, especially since one of the culprits was himself. Too farfetched and not funny enough to be given more than 2 stars. Sorry Anthony.

Malcolm King is a wealthy and arrogant businessman whose ex-wife to be has plans to take him for everything he's worth in their divorce settlement. Determined to avoid losing his fortune to her, Malcolm plans his own kidnapping with the help of his dim-witted mistress and her ex-con brother. Unfortunately for Malcolm, he is not the only one with a kidnapping plot. This movie is a silly slapstick comedy. You shouldn't watch this movie expecting to be moved to anything but laughter.

2/09/06 Although it was a "spoof" on black culture(at the corporate level)(with a Caucasian Alzheimer granny & her confused Causian grandson thrown in for good measure) and it had no redeeming values (unless if one looked for the subtle messages) , due to an excellent acting cast/crew lead by Anthony Anderson & a few of its "this can't be happening scenes" ,it's worth the viewing.

Jeff Byrd, the director of this movie, made absolutely clear his lack of any talent whatsoever in making this film- and he has not directed since, thank goodness.

The script, characters, and storyline are high-school caliber; the movie is EXCRUCIATINGLY UNFUNNY to the point of insulting your intelligence. This guy (Jeff Byrd) had no business in film whatsoever. How he managed to convince the studio to give him this job is beyond me.

Mr. Byrd, I hope you've found more gainful means of employment as you've proven without a doubt that you have no place in film. Maybe as a technician pulling cables and/or setting up lights, but should be the extent of your duties.

Not since the birth of Paris Hilton has such an unholy atrocity as this movie been unleashed on the world. Seeing as I don't have enough PTO to list what's wrong with this movie I'll list what's right: absolutely nothing. If someone you know puts this on, gouge your eyes out and smear the blood on the tv screen to prevent others from being subjected to it.

This was a great movie! we had to buy a copy.. It is very funny and has some good lessons... I would recommend this movie. One of my co workers asked me if I had seen this movie and I told them that we have seen the movie. My co worker also thought that it was a great movie and very funny. I am surprised at the reviews. Try it for your self.. great add on to your comedy collection!

While this movie could not be considered wildly funny it did have funny moments.

Unfortunately the funny moments could not be strung together well enough to make for a funny movie.

The plot, a man arranging his own kidnapping, that goes awry is a good starting point.

However from there the execution goes downhill.
