Jamie Foxx, Tommy Davidson, Vivica A. Fox and Tamala Jones star in this outrageous comedy about theone thing men and women both want: each other. After weeks of dating, Rushon and Nikki think they might be in love. And they know they're in lust. There's just one little problem Nikki insists on double-dating with her best friend Lysterine on the night Rushon has reserved for romance. So Rushon brings his rude, crude, sex-obsessed best boy Bunz to keep Lysty busy, and turns Nikki's double date into a hilarious date with disaster.
Okay, so this is trashy and often sophomoric. It is still funny. Tommy Davidson and Tamala Jones have been dating for almost two months and are pushed into that big romantic night by best friends Jamie Foxx and Vivica A. Foxx (as the hysterically named "Lysterine"). The friends, of course, engage in a verbal war based on instant loathing and mutual attraction. The humor is low-brow and sometimes stereotypical, but this is worth watching just for the scene in which the two guys, concerned about "safe sex," cover themselves in plastic wrap. It pushes the envelope, which is fun, but the clearly homophobic tendencies cause it to lose ground. Still, there is chemistry between the players and plenty of laugh-out-loud scenes. --Rochelle O'Gorman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Fortunately, I had the pleasure of watching this on VHS a few years back.
I honestly don't remember laughing so hard in my life. And 99% of the time I was laughing at Bunz. The other characters, Lysterine (Vivica A. Fox), Rashon (Tommy Davidson) and Nikki (Tamala Jones) are just window dressing. Foxx simply steals every scene he's in. With the exception of the angry lady scene and Bernie Mac's HILARIOUS cameo, oh, and of course, the blatantly stereotypical convenience store clerks, they are just there to act as foils for the impossibly funny Bunz. You know, instead of that big butt on the movie sleeve, they should have put Jamie Foxx's face on the cover. Anyway, minor spoilers ahead. These are my favorite scenes.
The Chinese restaurant! Bunz exchange with the waiter, Bunz speaking Chinese (he learned it from watching Kung Fu movies with...ah, I won't even spoil the joke!)
Bunz doing impressions spot on of William Shatner and Martin Luther King while er...you'll see!
Bottom line: Jamie Foxx is a genius. Don't mind the critics who pass this off as sophomoric. Well, of course it is! But like the editorial review says, it's funny. This will most likely become a cult classic now that Foxx's career is starting to really take off.
One of the best scenes, the dinner in the Chinese restaurant is hacked up and missing my favorite lines in the film. Also, for anyone watching with Spanish audio track engaged, the dub of the conversation between Bunz and Lysterine is in Spanish and not Chinese. Kinda blows the point of that sketch. I guess one needs to beware of DVD's from Columbia Pictures as much as those from Disney.
The scene where Jamie Foxx and Vivica Fox are speaking Chinese in the restaurant is classic.
A great movie but the stereotypes are so over the top it sometimes feels like you're watching a cartoon.
