"Yeah, like ANYBODY would buy that."
1 stars

If Martin Lawrence can pass off that easily as a cop, then shit, I could easily pass off as Saddam Hussein and nobody would notice it. If cops are really the retarded assholes like this trash bag says they are, well then fuck me, I could be a damn cop too any day, right?

This film is utter shit; it’s so pointless and so dumb, it’s enough to make you go outside and beat the fucking hell out of Martin Lawrence for being the god damn hack that he’s turned out to be. Never mind about his supposed comedic talent, that’s ancient goddamn history. Martin Lawrence hasn’t been funny since Nothing to Loose, and even then he was already reaching. It’s obvious that since Bad Boys, Martin started to think of himself while looking in the mirror, “I’m short and thin, but I have a sexy smile, a nice moustache and can kick your motherfucking ass in a heartbeat, Boyee!” RIP Martin Lawrence the comedian. Hell, not even his brain survived the metamorphosis, since every film he’s done since then, except Nothing to Loose has been bad, with following one being worse than the one before.

Check the skinny out: Dumbass thief hides a jewel in an air duct on a building under construction. He then gets busted and thrown in the brick. 2 years later, he’s released and searches for the building where he stashed the diamond, and he finds it. The only problem is that it’s a Police Station, so how to retrieve the diamond? Simple: pass off as “the new cop in the division.” Well, I’ll be fucking damned, what an incredible solution, the guy’s a genius, he’s such an inspiration! And the cops, being the complete dumbasses that they are, they’re going to buy it.

Never mind the whole unbelievable premise that the freaking diamond is going to be there in that same place after two years (by then the freaking air conditioner maintenance guys would’ve found the damn thing noisily clunking in the ducts). This thing doesn’t even pass off as a comedy and much less like an action film; the whole premise is so retarded and stupid, that it immediately looses credibility. And thanks to Lawrence’s gags and antics and hilarity that simply fall flat, and the utter stupidity of the cops he hangs around with make it for some seriously annoying and angering shit that will only insult the audience’s intelligence up to a boiling point. I could’ve easily switched channels in order to avoid more of this shit to be fed into my brain, but I decided to hang on in order to see if it would suddenly get a sudden spark of intelligence. That moment never came, and now I’m kicking myself since then, since I wasted and burned 93 minutes of my life and my brain in this crap.

In the end, avoid this fucking movie like Lucifer. May Martin Lawrence and everyone involved in this sack of shit burn in hell for wasting our times with this crap which set humanity back a couple more years. That motherfucker, if I ever see him in the street, I’ll knock his ass down and yell him, “How ya like that shit? VERY FUNNY, HUH BRUTHA??!!! 0-5
