Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Numbingly incoherent. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Watching [the events] unfold is like being at the mercy of a compulsive channel surfer who can't stop flipping between a bad UPN cop show and a stock WB sitcom. – Steve Daly, Entertainment Weekly, Feb 28, 2011

Rotten: If the movies that make 'best lists' are filet mignon, the culinary comparison here probably is bait. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Bait makes a fatal mistake, one this kind of movie should never make unless it actually is The Matrix or Terminator 2: Judgment Day: It's long. – Andrew O'Hehir,, Jul 7, 2010

Better than it looks

From the outside it looks fairly pedestrian and formulaic, but this movie is actually pretty darn good. Well made and worth a look.

Jamie Foxx Funniest!!!

Wow, I cant believe critics slammed this movie. I think it's the kinda of movie that you're not supposed to take that serious. I think is by far Jamie Fox's funniest movie and probably one of the last before went serious on us with Ray. I always enjoys this movie and laugh like it's my first time seeing it. I hope they release it on Blu-Ray in the near future.
