Review:

Any movie that starts off with Backstreet Boys automatically gets points with me. No idea why since I was never a fan, but damn it makes me smile.

I don’t know how anyone can think that pretending to be cops is a good idea. They take it even farther by getting a cop car and making it look as authentic as possible. I get that this is comedy and I was laughing, but let’s be real for a minute, that’s a fucking dumb idea.

When that naked dude came running out it was fucking hilarious.

The bad guy is a bit too psychotic. I’m not an expert in drug trafficking and gangs and all that shit, but I really think he’s a little too in to killing people to get that big. I don’t know. Maybe he killed his way to the top. It just looked like he enjoyed shooting up his money and drugs a bit too much in his pursuit to kill.

I thought it was a little long and kind of lost its focus right before the end, but I liked it. It was funny, and even though I called the ending, I had fun. I would not be adverse to a sequel. It made over one hundred million, so that’s pretty good, but the critic reception has been very negative. Who knows what will happen.

4/5
