Cedric the Entertainer stars as Ralph Cramden, the New York City bus driver who's always on the look out for a get-rich-quick scheme that will put him on easy street, and made famous on TV in the '50s by Jackie Gleason. Ralph's best friend Ed Norton (Mike Epps) believes Ralph is the smartest man in the world, while his wife Alice (Gabrielle Union) tries to be patient. Also with Regina Hall and Eric Stoltz. Directed by John Schultz. [1:25]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A man says, "If we had been pleasured, I think we would have known about it." A man says, "I do my best work down below" (referring to working in the sewers) and his wife says, "Oh, yes you do baby." A man says, "I've got an appetite for tails," and a woman says a velour fanny pack is "kinda' sexy." Two men discuss and debate women's shapes (peach shaped vs. bleach bottle shaped). A man talks about his French female aerobics teacher who was very flexible but "didn't have enough soft spots." A man confesses that he has seen his friend's wife nude and that sometimes he "thinks about her." A man says to another man, "give your man some love" and holds out his arms (nothing sexual is suggested).
 Women wear low-cut dresses and tops that reveal cleavage, and women wear short dresses that reveal their thighs. A man gets into bed with his wife: she is wearing a tank top and they snuggle and sleep.
 A man and a woman kiss, and a man leans over a sofa to kiss the person he thinks is his wife but it is his mother-in-law and she calls him a pervert.
 A bus driver admires a woman standing on a sidewalk, he slams on the brakes, two taxis behind the bus swerve, and the driver backs the bus up, gets out, dances around the woman, and invites her into the bus for a ride. Two men admire a woman walking on a street.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - We hear a dog whimpering in a dumpster, and a man pulls the dog out just as heavy debris falls from a chute into the dumpster. A man burns items in a barrel, and he reaches into the flames to retrieve a card.
 Two men climb down a fire escape, it breaks, they hang from a rail, they drop and land on another section unharmed.
 A man shoves another man in a fit of jealousy. A pool ball bounces off a table and hits a man in the head, he falls over onto the floor, gets up and charges toward the men responsible; we then see them outside the pool hall with their jackets twisted around them. A man chases another man along a street. A man tries to close a door on a man who struggles to push his way back in. A man falls over a sofa and lands on the floor (he's OK), a man falls off a piano bench (he's OK), and a man hits his head on a drain pipe.
 A bus driver admires a woman standing on a sidewalk, he slams on the brakes, and two taxis behind the bus swerve. A man breaks a hole in a wall with a hammer.
 A man yells at a man and accuses him of ruining his life. A man yells at his wife, they yell at each other. A mother-in-law is very insulting to her son-in-law.
 A woman asks, "Should I cut him?" about a man who is trying to persuade two women to make a deal with him.
 Two men walk through a sewer, and one falls under the dirty water. A man siphons gas from a car, gets some in his mouth and he spits it out. A man picks his nose and puts what he finds in a trophy.

Become a Member

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
