Overview
Bucum Jackson (Cube) is a bounty hunter with a lot of attitude and no interest in taking on a partner. Working at Martinez Bail Bonds, Jackson has unorthodox methods of tracking down low-life criminals, but they work, and one day he hopes to become his own boss and open up his own private investigation firm. Reggie Wright (Epps) is a slippery con artist who is avoiding the law, and Jackson. During a cat and mouse chase, the two stumble on a multi-million dollar diamond heist. Hiding from Jackson, Wright finds himself in the thieves' getaway van and ends up having to escape from them after they discover their booty is fake, much to the displeasure of their ruthless boss (Flanagan). When Wright meets up with his girlfriend (Mendes), he discovers that his recently purchased lottery ticket is the sole winner of $60 million. Unfortunately, his wallet, which held the ticket, was left in the thieves' van, so he persuades Jackson to help him get it back.

  • All About the Benjamins
    Movies from Film Forum, 03/14/02If films about arranged marriages are common, urban crime dramas are legion. It seems every month brings us a handful of these films. They usually star shotgun-wielding rock stars and rap stars, and they splash excess sex and violence across the screen. Most of these stories can be summed up like this: "You mess with me, take my stuff, steal my girl, or get in my way, and I'll come after you with a gun, an encyclopedia of cuss words, and a very very loud heavy metal soundtrack!"This week we have All About the Benjamins. Ice Cube plays Bucum, a Miami bounty hunter who gets entangled in a diamond heist with Reggie, a clumsy grifter (Mike Epps). Normally, Bucum would be dragging Reggie to jail, but when he sees that they could partner in an attempt to catch some big-time crooks, he changes his game. A lost $60 million dollar lottery ticket becomes part of the gamble, so there's a lot of money ($100 bills=Benjamins, you see) at stake, and great civil unrest ensues. But are these unlikely "heroes" after justice, or personal gain?Holly McClure (Crosswalk) writes, "The few funny moments … are outweighed by a torrent of profanity. Ice Cube needs to either play a tough guy with a soft side or a softie that has a mean streak in him, but his character isn't mean enough or funny enough to carry this movie. Epps has his moments, but he's no Chris Rock, or Tucker for that matter. The two try their hardest to be funny, but after about the 100th F-word, I quit counting the horrendous language and got irritated." googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-1'); }); John Adair (Preview) says "brutal" violence and "more than 200 obscenities" gain the film his "most objectionable rating." googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-2'); }); if (gptClientWidth >= 992 && gptClientWidth <= 1000000) googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-3'); }); Mainstream critics were as harsh or harsher in their judgments. Jay Boyar (The Orlando Sentinel) declares, "The violence and profanity are so gratuitous and vulgar that your mind shuts down self-protectively. 'Remember that time is money,' cautioned the original Benjamin Franklin, and he was right. The 90 minutes you spend at All About the Benjamins can start to feel like a whole fistful of Benjamins." ]]>

  • Don't Spend Your Benjamins on This One
    Movies All About the Benjamins - R Best for: People who enjoy 5th-grade level, made-for-TV entertainment, with filthy language. What it's about: Ice Cube plays Bucum Jackson, a Miami bounty hunter who's hot on the trail of Reggie Reed (Mike Epps), a con man who happens to lead Jackson to a front for stolen diamonds. Along the way, Epps loses his $60 million lottery ticket, and the two team up to recover it and get the diamonds. Both men are in over their heads, but in the end . . . it's all about the Benjamins! (I had to say it!) The good: The jokes and banter between Epps and Cube are funny for a while but then start to wear on your nerves. The not-so-good: Cube needs to either play a tough guy with a soft side or a softie that has a mean streak in him, but his character isn't mean enough or funny enough to carry this movie. Epps has his moments, but he's no Chris Rock, or Tucker for that matter. The two try their hardest to be funny, but after about the 100th "F"-word, I quit counting the horrendous language and got irritated that screenwriters Ron Lang and Ice Cube couldn't come up with more intelligent dialogue than, "I'm gon bus yo #@%& win dis is ovah!" It's movies like this that make you wonder who was in the room when someone said this was a funny script. Did no one speak up? Do the studios like to lose money? Offensive language: An abundant amount of the "F"-word and other profane and crude dialogue -- including a remark about sticking a finger up Oprah's anatomy. Sexual situation: A couple have sex, but no nudity is shown. Violence: Lot of gratuitous gun shots, splattered blood, torture of a wounded man, and a body is shot numerous times. Parental advisory: Do not let your kids or teens see this one. It's a waste of time and money. Bottom Line: This is strictly made-for-TV quality, but airing it on TV would require bleeped dialogue all the way through. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('gpt-ad-1'); }); ]]>

  • Baywatch Review
    (”All About the Benjamins” is briefly mentioned in this.)

    There is no way around it, Baywatch is amiss on almost every level. Rock’s likable charm can’t save this film and honestly, he’s much better in action films than trying to save BS comedies like this. Zac Efron has his name attached to another stinker, and I’m not sure any of the women actually won being in his film, except Kelly Rohrbach on the basis you actually know who she is now. Baywatch is a sad cash grab that makes sad cash grabs look bad.

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
