"...tossing in riffs on Whiplash, Magic Mike, and Zero Dark Thirty to varying degrees of success."--Entertainment Weekly

This movie wasnt as bad as I expected. It was better than the real movie. It was a lot of stereotypes and crude humor as all Wayans produced films are.

Awful, disgusting, boring, total waste of time.

Disgusting and unfunny, with all of that lovely vocabulary that makes black people look like a pack of idiots.
I did laugh at 1:13:00. I laughed a couple of times after that as well. The scenes with white folk are generally better than the black-only ones: Jane Seymour, Florence Henderson, Fred Willard.
The lead actress, Kali Hawk, is Jewish in real life, and her video about being black and Jewish is funny. (Try YouTube.)

This really was one of the worst movies of the past few years. Jokes were stale, timing was off and I could not watch the entire film.

Language so bad and I couldn't bear and turned it off after 15 minutes.

Wish I could give this negative stars. Every unfortunate stereotypical cliche has been strung together into a pathetic reach for a script. That I actually have to return this to allow another borrower to make their own stumble, leaves me conflicted with myself. Beware, it's horrible!
