The movie was pretty funny, i give it an A+. Reading thru the comments and seeing a lot of "future of America" complaining about this movies makes it more enjoyable lol they expected getto stuff comedy involving black humor... sad that someone's imagination doesn't go beyond that 🤔

This was in the Mystery & Suspense genre, which is itself a mystery. Really though, it's more of an Action movie. It does have a good dose of suspense, some comedic aspects and yes, some, if little, mystery. Even though it had a bit too much gun play for a typical family's viewing we found it a good evening's entertainment. The plot is fairly simple and the outcome was not a real surprise. This is not a heavy movie, so even though there are a few murders and fair amount of violence, the overall feel is one of slapstick comedy with bits of dark and light comedy interspersed on top of lots of action.

There were about 2 to 3 jokes that weren't forced to the point of being cringy. The rest were utterly unfunny or just dumb. Ryan and Russel didn't really have any chemistry in their scenes together. Ryan tried too hard to be the comic relief and Russel seemed wooden at times trying to be the straight man. Overall, not even a meh movie. Don't waste your time.
