| The opposite of real life, The Movie!
Have you ever seen a movie that represents reality poorly? Ah, well. It is a comedy, right?

I like Mike Epps, but this film might as well have been a cartoon. There were a few short laughs; The biggest laugh by far was Mike Tyson's brief role. He had me rolling. The rest of the comedy was based on "stuck in the 1930's" style racist humor.

White people are represented as universally villainous and overtly racist; Which is supposed to be a joke, but the lines just seem so unnatural that there is no way it could sound authentic. Its like someone went through the film in post production and tried to ad-lib some racist white people from books written a century ago.

I was mostly disappointed in the comedy, bored by the action, and even a great scene with Charlie Murphy couldn't raise the bar on this film. The kids were annoying, the family was deranged, and Mike Epps himself seems too old for the sh*t-head gangsta roles he always seems to get. Casually dropping the N-bomb while looking disinterested and lanky was his main appeal in most films and I think the amusement of that character has run it's course.

Mike, you can play roles where the character has an IQ over 70, I promise! Err...I assume you can.
