I enjoyed this film and Anthony Anderson outdid himself in playing the role of a stuckup,obnoxious business executive with questionable judgement. He was such a Heel that he attempted to engineer his own kidnapping to get out of paying a high divorce settlment, but he had pissed of a number of others to the extent that his estranged wife engineered a plan to kidnap him to make sure that he doesnot get out of settlement. He had passed over promoting his top administrator to being his assistant and gave the assistant position to his emptyheaded mistress. The offended female worker engineered her own plot with two of her friends to kidnap him as well. A fellow applying for a job at his company was pressured by his sister who had broken out of jail to get her $10,000 or she was going to tell the law that he was mastermind of the robbery that got her put away in prison,when this fellow applied to mr king for a job. Anthony Anderson insulted him and turned him dow flat-this fellow engineered his own plot to kidnap him. So there were four kidnap plots against this one obnoxious man. The story took on a halarious turn when all of the kidnappers tripped over each other to kidnap the star. Loretta Divine kept the comedy alive as well. That action was improbable but the film will keep you in stiches.

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.

throughout this whole film, beginning to end, was comedy!
a lot of black comedy films always know how to bring the funny!!!!
i highly recommend this movie to anyone who would like to have a good laugh on a friday night!
anthony anderson, jay mohr and regina hall were probably the funniest actors in the movie
but overall, everyone was funny and watching the special features adds more to the package!

I saw this movie a couple of years ago and have never laughed so hard all movie long. Unfortunately, I could not remember the movie's name or Anthony Anderson's name. I have been searching for this movie the last couple of years to no avail. Even doing a search on the top black actors, but did not see Anthony Anderson.

About a week ago I was watching Harold and Kumar going to white castle and boom at the burger shack was the guy in the hilarious movie. Did an [...] and it was "Anthony Anderson". Started looking through the movies and found it "King's Ransom".

I told my wife we have got to watch this again. It has been so long. I am already laughing. Can't wait to purchase it here on amazon.com

I don't understand what some of these reviewers are thinking. All of have to do is sit back, don't think and just laugh at this comedy "Masterpiece"

Absolutly love it. If anyone knows other great lesser known movies like this comment them to me!

Thanks.

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.
