VERDICT – 2/5

 

PROS –
1) Entire Bernie Mac’s campaign for the vice-president is the best part of this movie. The NATO bit was top notch.

 

CONS –
1) Terrible execution. It’s a 5-minutes worth of stand-up comedy act stretched for 95 minutes with little consequences.
2) Disappointing soundtrack.

Host: NATO is the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
Mitch: I thought you were talking about this guy named Nato.
Host: But you have to know these things. You’re running for public office.
Mitch: Do you know Nato Jacobs? Do you know Nato Jacobs?
Host: I’m sorry, I haven’t met the gentleman.
Mitch: That’s what I said. You know nothing about Nato? I know nothing about NATO.
