MPAA Rating: R

Just minutes after being released from prison, a man with "two strikes" against him is innocently involved in a shoot-out with police and becomes a fugitive from the law in this comedy. With Brian Hooks, N'Bushe Wright, Faizon Love, David Alan Grier and D.J. Pooh. [1:23]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - Lots of sexual innuendo (including references to sodomy, cunnilingus and masturbation). A woman wearing a bra, panties and a garter belt stands in front of a man whose eyes bulge while looking at her; she lies on a bed with him and then he rolls on top of her as the scene ends (it's implied they have intercourse). A woman wearing a tiny halter top and shorts that reveal most of her bare buttocks dances suggestively in front of a man during a few short scenes (her backside is facing the camera); in a later scene, we see the man push her head off-camera toward his crotch and then see his pleasured expression (we briefly see her bare back and part of her bare breast). We see clips of a video game in which two small male and female characters have intercourse in a few different positions with movement and moaning. In a few scenes we see a woman's face (with a pleasured expression) and hear a humming noise along with her moans; in the last scene, she brings a phallus into the camera's view. A man licks his lips while looking at another's buttocks, which are held up in a sling; later, the man unzips his pants in front of the other (the scene fades to black immediately afterwards). A man puts his hand down his pants as he watches some scantily clad women do aerobics on television and daydreams that he's dancing with them. A woman in a cleavage-revealing negligee and robe dances behind a man and rubs a feather boa on his neck and head; she later shows him a box of sex toys, including a paddle and a phallus. A woman runs her hands underneath a man's shirt, a man kisses a woman's bare shoulders, a man thrusts his hips into a bed a few times and a man looks at a woman's buttocks and thrusts his hips toward her several times. We see a few scantily clad women dancing suggestively and serving drinks to men at a bar (most of the women's bare buttocks are visible); we also see a woman's bare shoulders as she's taking a bubble bath and several women in cleavage-revealing tops.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - Mostly played for laughs. Two police officers threaten two men (one of whom has a gun); shots are exchanged, cars are hit and one man is shot in the buttocks (we see blood on his pants as he's rolled away on a gurney); in another scene, many police officers surround a man and start shooting at him (he's not hit, but his car is shot many times). A man daydreams that police officers break down a door and shoot him repeatedly (we see several small bloody circles on his shirt). Two men punch another man in the stomach and grab his shirt; one briefly threatens to rape him and thrusts his hips a little. A man is punched in the face; also, a man is tripped and then repeatedly kicked by many others. A man flicks another's wounded buttocks (we hear him yell in pain), a woman pushes a man, a woman hits a man with her purse a few times, a woman slaps a man twice, men slap at each other, a man shatters a bottle over another's head and a boy accidentally hits a man's crotch with a stick. A police officer puts his hand on a woman's shoulder, and when she knocks it away he threatens her with a gun and has her taken away by a few other officers. A man jumps off a diving board and leaps over a fence (we hear things breaking, but he's not injured). A few scenes of reckless driving during a car chase; a man is knocked to the ground when a car spins and hits him. A man is chased by a dog. A man passes gas loudly several times and we see a man spit.

PROFANITY 10 - At least 76 F-words, some profane finger gestures, lots and lots of anatomical references, scatological references, mild obscenities and racial epithets and many insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Prison, marijuana use, the "three strikes" crime law, running from the law, infidelity.

MESSAGE - Running away from an illegal situation when you're innocent makes you appear to be guilty; it's easy to find and get into trouble everywhere.

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.
