Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

It's rather apt that Tommy Chong makes a cameo appearance in this slipshod comedy from writer/director DJ Pooh, as it often resembles the meandering, weed-fuelled vehicles he used to make with Cheech Marin. Rappers Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre head the cast as a couple of losers who briefly sideline their fixation with getting high and pursuing foxy females in order to rescue car-wash boss George Washington from a gang of incompetent kidnappers. Utterly reliant on the kind of African-American stereotypes and clichés that writer/director Robert Townsend lamented in Hollywood Shuffle, this is a lazy film that trades cynically on supposedly subversive chic and the notoriety of its leads.
