(Review originally written at 29 April 2005)

People seem to forget that this was just simply a comedy. It's a comedy with a extreme amount of scene's were different races are poking fun of themselves. It shows some of the prejudices we all have, in a comical way. In a way it's holding-up a mirror to the viewer who has certain prejudices. It's not racist, it's pure simple effective comedy!

This was a movie I really enjoyed watching. Seriously I expected to come here afterward and write a comment about how bad and racist it was but it wasn't any of that! This movie really made me laugh.

Best thing about this comedy were the crazy characters that were in it. All of the characters were extremely funny and unforgettable. It may sound weird but I really like Snoop Dogg as an actor. He is always simply hilarious in most roles he plays.

The use of music is just great! And I'm not really into that kind of music normally...

There isn't a whole lot of story of course but that really is a secondary in movies like this. Quite frankly I can't understand that if why you liked watching movies like "Hot Shots!" and "Airplane!" who have a similar kind of humor style, you can yet have hatred towards this movie. By the way movies like "Hot Shots!" and "Airplane!" were just as 'racist' as this movie.

Only thing I didn't really liked about the movie was the way some of the characters were treated some characters were underused and their stories felt 'unfinished'.

All in all a comedy that really made me laugh at times throughout the movie. Not a lot of people dare to say this so here goes; One of the best comedies of 2004!
