    Bursts at the seams with splashes of color and rage, filling each frame with crushing deathblows and screaming fits of fury.

    Dirty, offensive, infantile and may launch a few sanctimonious opinion columns. And I mean that in the nicest way.
    - Desson Thomson, Washington Post

    Tucker's manic torrent of dialogue works well alongside Ice Cube's put-upon exasperation, making for a memorable comic chemistry that carries the pair through a month's worth of shenanigans packed into a single wild day. - Derek Armstrong, All Movie Guide
