All About The Benjamins (2002)

Ice Cube is a bounty hunter! He runs into one of his old foes, a clowing-around broke-ass that-word-I- can't-say-cause-I'm-white from way back, who just so happens to escape and hide in the van of a murderous psycho who just stole 20 million dollars worth of diamonds - but they aren't real. The clowning-around so-and-so just won 60 million dollars on lotto, but dropped his wallet while fleeing from the same guys who are now chasing him for the diamonds, who ironically have no idea about that lottery ticket they're handling while searching for a third-worth of riches aaaand it gets messed up!

All in all, it's a classily crazy Ice Cube action flick that reminds me a little of Ride Along, just not as polished towards an international audience. Also with a somewhat superficial (yet expected) motive: it's all about that $$$. Mike Epps (the clown; progressive sidekick) doesn't have the same comedic effect as Kevin Heart (maybe cause he's taller than Ice Cube?), sometimes coming off as plain annoying, but it was a blast anyway, an action comedy that never really slows down! Until it's over. Eva Mendez makes a surprise appearance too. Good watch!

 rated 3/5: not bad

    oh cool you watched it!! Mike Epps isn't bad. He has the same goofy, wimpy, lanky black guy character that he also portrayed in the last two Friday movies. Would have been better if Chris Tucker was playing the role; I don't think Kevin Hart existed then...Only a 3/5??

    Oh, he was in those movies too. Can't say I remember much from any one Friday movie I've watched... but he seems to have been in a bunch of movies! I was surprised when I looked up his IMDB page, thought I recognized him as a musician only.

    He does have a mostly fun and goofy kind of style, but some times it just seems to go overboard... Chris Tucker sounds like a good candidate, he's small too, perfect sidekick that way, but nobody's smaller than Kevin Hart! Even if he is a 'big deal'. :P He's been around, just took a while to get into the spotlight.

    and 3/5 is not bad! ;)
