After watching the trailer for this film, everyone involved with this project needs to be cane-whipped by the ENTIRE Black community. Ice Cube, Tracy Morgan and Katt Williams star in the sorry story of two petty criminals who try to rob a church so that one of the men can keep his son from be taken from him.
Screenwriter David Talbert’s intentions may have been good, but where is the humor in someone trying to rob a church. While I may object, clearly I’m not surprised because the onslaught of bad movies is only beginning.
I understand the need to support Black films and the filmmakers but they have a responsibility to give us something worthy to support. My advice is that if you skip this in the theaters it will probably hit DVD shelves by mid-April – if some people don’t pick up a copy from their local bootleg man.
