Oh my goodness, why did they have to make this [stuff] and then turn around and make another one. I absolutely detest this movie! First of all no Chris Tucker, second of all it was just a rehash of the same plot as the first one, and third of all it wasn't funny.
No Chris Tucker is definetely a bad thing, but I understand that he didn't want to do it again. Ice Cube could have gotten a replacement that was at least remotely close to being as funny as Chris. But he settled for no talent Mike Epps, he's whiny, annoying, not funny at all, and has no chemistry with Ice Cube. You could tell Craig was superior to Day Day, at least with Craig and Smokey they were pretty much equal, Smokey didn't let Craig run all over him. Have you notice that Mike has only been in Ice Cube movies because nobody else wants him (and who would with talents like Chris Tucker, Martin, and Bernie Mac to name a few out there who are actually funny), okay yeah he had a small part in How High, like that movie is real credible. Anyway it might have been better if Cube could have gotten somebody other than Mike Epps to be his sidekick.
If I wanted to see the same storyline rehashed from the first, then I would just watch the first movie at least I can see Chris Tucker rather than Mike Epps.
Like I before, this one was not funny, I think Kim Whitley and the mexicans got a light chuckle out of me, but other than that I didn't really laugh. Word of advice, if you want to see a classic movie that makes you laugh throughout the whole movie, stick to Friday.
