Our Score
Working from a script that is as clunky as its title, one-time Nickelodeon star Nick Cannon makes an unwelcome grab for the Beverly Hills Cop/Rush Hour audience in this lazy crime caper. He plays an ambitious uniformed cop who gets his big break when he convinces his superiors to let him go undercover at a private school to investigate the murder of a school reporter. The killing appears to be linked to a stolen car ring, but he discovers that the conspiracy goes deeper than that. Cannon co-executive produced so he has to accept some of the blame for the lack of laughs and thrills, leaving Hugh Bonneville to ham it up for all he's worth as the school's snobbish headmaster.

Summary

A detective mocked by his colleagues for his youthful appearance gets the chance to prove his worth when he goes undercover at a posh private school to investigate the death of a pupil. But as he delves discreetly into the case, he discovers the killing is linked to a group of students involved in a luxury car-theft ring. Comedy, starring Nick Cannon, Kelly Hu, Cheech Marin and Shawn Ashmore.
