ice cube and mike epps make a great duo

This is different from the Friday trilogy but it's still a really fun time with plenty of intense action and laughs to be had, just an all around fun and hilarious action comedy, if you loved snatch and the Friday trilogy, you'll love all about the Benjamins

Heavy on violence, crass language, and sexual situations. Light on everything else. There's really nothing worth watching here.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
