Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Full of very obvious spoofery, and funnier in concept than in execution."
‑ Godfrey Cheshire, Variety
"Outrageous is the key word here. In many successful scenes, the Wayans deftly play on our assumptions and cliches."
‑ Esther Iverem, Washington Post
"If you really want to appreciate this film, go see all the hood movies from the 90s - good and bad."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"The thin plot is merely the frame for gags, and there are more a few good ones here."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"One of the funniest movies of all time"
‑ Kevin Fiddler, Henderson Home News (Henderson, NV)
"A free-for-all comic spoof that brings the 'hood' genre of Hollywood films full circle."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Things might be bad, the movie suggests, but they're not so bad you can't laugh."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"...the Wayans use a sledgehammer to drive in a thumbtack."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Laugh yourself stupid....Wayans classic!"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"There are zero laughs in this stupid, stupid movie."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Rude, crude and outrageous."
‑ Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today
"Strangely sour and ultimately wearisome."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"There's maybe three or four half-decent chuckles to be found in this otherwise interminable 90-minute mega-chore."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"[A] pleasant hour and a half."
‑ Dragan Antulov,
"The gags -- like most of the Wayanses' humor -- range from astute satire to lowest-common-denominator yucks."
‑ Barry Walters, San Francisco Examiner
