Way too high rated

This is not 16 plus! No way! There is barely language in there, a little ass and shit here and there and one use if the f word. It should be 2 or 3 not 5! Then the sex, way too over rated. One character is an exotic dancer, yeah, sure, but there is one small scene about that. Nothing is shown at all. Its in prison and one guy asks how she got in prison which had to do with being an exotic dancer. There is a lot of positive messages about how important family is too. Let alone all the good stuff, its also a really funny comedy! Its hilarious and Wayans is like the next Eddie Murphy. Its rated way too low and age rated way too high. Take a look at the parent and children reviews. Thats more of what it is!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Marlon Wayans deserves a little love for giving his all (and giving up any vanity he may have had) to play six farcical, over-the-top characters in this absurdly silly, raunchy, one-joke comedy. And that's not counting his straight role as the Sextuplets protagonist. There are a few solid laughs (a sequence paying homage to TV's The Rockford Files is hilarious), but beyond that, it's potty humor, exaggerated stereotypes, and ridiculous situations -- an unexpected kidney transplant is about as sophisticated as it gets. Still, it's a bet that the movie will find an audience, even if it's only adolescent boys and their like-minded adult counterparts.
