My Review
This film definitley lives up to the hype…um..er..if hype is suckage than it lives up to that. I will give you this, there were a few parts that made me laugh, but most of all the movie was laughable.

After watching this film I can only sit back and wonder why Jimmy Fallon left SNL knowing his chance for success was the same as anyone who was a Seinfeld cast member making another hit show.

As for Queen Latifah, she does nothing but fall from her high and mighty standing as an oscar contender in Chicago. As far as I can tell, Queen just plays the same character in every movie. Not to mention she doesn’t really flow well as an actress, you could really see her “trying” in Taxi.

In the end, I did get it on netflix which but I think this one could have waited until late night on USA Network.
