VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) The plot is a commentary on the current socio-political topics involving the black community like #BlackLivesMatters, gang violence, and school shootings.
2) Cedric the Entertainer as Eddie Walker again got the best lines.

 
CONS –
1) The movie takes a light-hearted way of simplifying things with a sappy ending rather than diving deep and challenging political correctness
2) Predictable twist and turns.

CONS –
1) Nothing much was expected from this run-of-the-mill comedy anyway. Half of the jokes are already in the trailer.

Don’t worry, boo.I’m gonna put hands on them.I’m talking hot grits, extension cords, timberland boots. I’m gonna fuck up that bitch’s Instagram account.I’m gonna put two q-tips in his pee-pee hole, and I’m gonna walk him around. I’m gonna just wipe, just swipe in that thing and yank them out! And then I’m gonna stick my fingers up in his ass and tell him I’m checking his prostate, but really I’m gonna yank his balls out of the back of that motherfucker! And then I’m gonna put my fist so far up his ass, I’m gonna pull his heart out through that motherfucker, and I’m gonna “Kali ma shakti” that shit, just…Then I’m gonna stick my fingers back up in his ass, and then I’m gonna twirl them around and see if that make him giggle a little bit. Because I like to make a motherfucker laugh while I hurt him, you know what I’m saying?
