Comedy Crime - This is not a very funny movie even though it's supposed to be a comedy. It's a silly, corny story with over-the-top characters.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 25 moviegoer opinions. Not a big turnout for this movie, to say the least. Which turns out to be a good thing because these aren't the greatest opinions. They aren't terrible opinions because around half of the twentysomething and adult opinions, both male and female, came it as "Very Good" or higher. The problem is the lack of "Fantastic" opinions and the relatively high number of "Fair" and lower opinions.

If you're a fan of anyone in this movie and feel the need to see it, I would suggest a lower cost matinee. I feel it's worth that price. When it hits video I wouldn't have any problem recommending it, but only after you've seen all the better movies.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Everybody wants a piece of Malcolm King…

A successful and wealthy businessman, with plenty of attitude to spare, Malcolm (Anthony Anderson) has made more than his share of enemies over the years, including his soon-to-be ex-wife (Kellita Smith) and his overworked, under-appreciated employees. Not wanting to go through a messy and expensive divorce played out in the media, Malcolm devises a plan to save his money from his wife's eager hands. Along with the help of his mistress, Peaches (Regina Hall), Malcolm plots his own kidnapping in order to secure a fictitious ransom so extremely high that, once paid, the public will think he's broke and unable to meet his wife's financial demands.

But unbeknownst to Malcolm, he's not the only one with a kidnapping plan. Not only his wife, but one of his long-suffering employees (Nicole Parker) and a dim-witted local bumpkin (Jay Mohr), have all cooked up separate schemes of their own, each more ridiculous than the next. What results is a wild, comedic ride for Malcolm that will change his life forever.
