They could have done so much with it...the potential was actually there. I mean, you have two roommates who start disliking each other as the film progresses, but instead of pulling an ODD COUPLE on us and tossing some one-liners or funny situations our way, you get to see them tell each other off, over and over and over again. Haha. And since when were those bouncing cars funny? Back in 1994...maybe. Well, someone should have told the director that since he can't seem to get enough of them here. Haha, once again. So what did I like? Not much really. Dre is lifeless as the lead in the film, and Snoop, despite having charisma and wit in real-life, seems pissed and far from humorous here. I did like the few cameos in the movie, including Eminem, basically playing his "rapper persona" to a tee, and Shaquille O'Neal, who actually made me smile a little, but that was about it. And the hotties, you say? Once again...disappointing y'all! Where the chicks at, dude? You guys wallpaper your music videos with booty galore but spend less than a minute with luscious babes here?? I'm telling you...I am seriously confused! Someone please help me understand how these hip rap gentlemen could be featured in such an empty movie. By the way, I sometimes recommend that you drink yourself silly or smoke some shite to enjoy the lighter side of such flicks, but this puppy doesn't even have that going for it. No style, mean-spirited, no laughs...and yes, Pauly Shore even shows up in a cameo. Sure hindsight is 20/20, but c'mon guys...Pauly Shore!?! Nuff said.
