(Review originally written at 30 April 2004)

The fun level of this movie is incredible high which makes this movie also one of the most enjoyable ones of the past few years, despite its flaws.

It's hard to say what it is that makes this movie a good comedy. Probably it's because of the high fast pace and the many story lines about the many characters that race to $2.000.000. Because of the high pace there are plenty of jokes and comical situations, most of them are predictable but for some reason it doesn't make them less fun. A great execution by the filmmakers. Of course some of the jokes are just plain lame but that goes for all comedies.

The cast is full with big comedy names. I was surprised to see how comically talented Cuba Gooding Jr. was. All of the characters have their own storyline that are all told in a great way with as a result that all of those story lines are made interesting and fun enough to care and to be interested in all of them.

It's a shame that the ending is disappointing and in a way predictable but luckily it doesn't ruin the rest of the movie entirely.

Very well executed comedy with an incredible high fun level.
