Is It Any Good?
ALL ABOUT THE BENJAMINS is to Ice Cube what Crossroads is to Britney Spears: a vanity vehicle designed by a star who has very little sense of how people behave in real life. This is like a smudgy copy of a copy, bits and pieces of other movies put together so that the star can pretend to shoot and throw a couple of punches.
Ice Cube, who produced the movie, apparently decided that he would enjoy playing a bounty hunter, and not just any bounty hunter but one who (yawn) doesn't get along with his boss and refuses to take on a partner. The plot is just an excuse for showing off with some smart-alecky comments and shoot-outs. Ice Cube and Epps are able performers with a nice rapport, but they can't do much with this lackluster plot, like the umpteenth re-tread of a reject from the Beverly Hills Cop series.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
