A Washington, D.C. alderman (Chris Rock, who also directs) is chosen to be the Democratic presidential
candidate after the previous candidate is killed in a plane crash. He accepts the nomination, believing that he is in the race to win, not
knowing that his campaign manager has a different agenda. Also with Bernie Mac, Dylan Baker, Robin Givens and Tracy Morgan. [1:35]
SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man and a woman kiss a couple of times and a woman kisses a man. A woman touches a man's leg and tries to
seduce him. A man asks a woman for a kiss, a man kisses and nuzzles a woman's neck, a man leans in to kiss a woman but they are
interrupted, and a man and a woman share a milkshake. Men and women dance together in a few scenes. A man apparently grabs a woman's
buttock although we do not see it (she slaps him). A woman makes several insulting comments about a man's sexual abilities. A group of
women (it is suggested that they are prostitutes) in revealing outfits file into a room. A man talks about Thomas Jefferson's sexual
relationship with one of his slaves. A man tells another man that a woman's job is to "sleep with him," and a man asks a woman what she's
wearing while they talk on the phone. A man imagines a woman lifting her top (her breasts are obscured by letters). A man imagines women
dressed in camouflage bikini tops and shorts going through a physical training session. Women wear outfits that reveal cleavage, bare
shoulders, bare abdomens and thighs in several scenes. A party is described as being hosted by people who do business in sexual favors.
Another party is attended by homosexual men and some are dressed in women's clothes.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man is shot (we see a flash, hear a bang, the man grabs his stomach and falls). A man and a woman are
held at gunpoint by Secret Service agents. A cat is inside a building that is about to be demolished, a woman runs in to retrieve her, a
man runs in to get the two of them and they all come out just as the building explodes (we see a ball of fire behind them and they are
blown forward). A man imagines being shot on a podium in several scenes (we hear the gunshot, see him flinch and fall). Two men punch each
other in the face and stomach repeatedly, one man is thrown over a couch and crashes onto a table that breaks. A man grabs a man by the
throat and shakes him. Professional wrestlers are shown kicking and punching a man. A running woman slams into the back of a parked van
(we see her in casts and traction in the hospital later). People throw eggs at a bus. A man punches three men and a woman in the face, a
man punches several men in the face and yells at them, a woman slaps a man in the face, a man slaps a man in the face, two men punch each
other in the stomach, a man is punched in the face, and a man slaps a man in the face. A crowd of people run and scream when a man says
"the roof is on fire" -- not realizing it is an expression. Many people scream and run through a street. A man runs toward a woman with
his fist raised and nearly hits her (he stops in front of her nose). We see a man on a stretcher in a neck brace. A woman is repeatedly
dragged away, with a hand over her mouth, by security, another woman is dragged away and a man is dragged away. A woman yells at a man and
insults him, two men yell at each other, and a woman screams. We hear a woman yelling at a man on a telephone. We hear a news report about
a plane crash that kills a presidential candidate. We hear a news report about guns and bombs having been found in a high school. A TV
commercial shows the White House exploding. A bus drives over a man's bike and leaves it in pieces.
