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.]]>

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!
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.Read more ›
