Ian Douglas: Hoo boy. Okay, so it will go straight to number 1, just like in the States. A cynic might say that Lawrence is trying to catch Eddie Murphy by combining two of Murphy's successes (detective, fake fat person) into one movie. As a comedy it starts off okay, but right around the toilet scene, the laughter dies down. The preview audience was strangely quite for a long time after that, as the humour was very weak and cliched. The only saving grace is the eye-friendly Nia Long. The film also features at least two astonishing (that they were left in) lapses in continuity.

Michael O'Neal (25): Sucks!! Don't waste your money and time for this crap!

Lauren Gouws (45): Brilliant!!!!!

Tumelo Taunyane (19): I really enjoyed the movie, it's very funny and I loved the humour in it. I can't wait for the movie to be on videos , so I can sit at home and laugh all day long.

Cynthia Lovett (23): Slapstick comedy, you've got to love it.

Brian Kgariya (20): I think it's funny, but some of the scene have be used in alot of movies, it's now getting to me . It was not as good as Martin's previous movie ''Blue Streak''
