Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: At its worst, Malibu's Most Wanted resembles a 10th-generation dupe of some bottom-dwelling teen comedy daubed with fake family uplift.

- Bob Campbell, Newark Star-Ledger, Friday, April 18, 2003

Rotten: As a star vehicle for Kennedy, Malibu doesn't advance the ball, but the timing could be perfect to grab the eager-for -the-end -of-school crowd.

- C.W. Nevius, San Francisco Chronicle, Friday, April 18, 2003

"Don't be hatin'" A senator arranges for his son, a rich white kid who fancies himself black, to be kidnapped by a couple of black actors pretending to be murderers to try and shock him out of his plans to become a rapper. REVIEW Great premise, but they managed to muck it up. This flick was big on stereotypes; small on imagination. A lot of the humor was sophomoric and crass; indicating a not- too - mature writing staff. Some adult supervision would have greatly enhanced this predictable bore. The casting was great - all the main characters were quite capable and the movie did have its moments. Jamie Kennedy had the rap-wannabe dialect down. The movie quickly became bogged down with racial stereotyping, however: hostile blacks, lots of guns, women as sex objects. This film had lots of potential - it just needed some direction and, in the end, originality. The word "bitch" was used so frequently as it would indicate that the script writer received royalties for it. "Bitch", "bee-och"; it quickly graduated from offensive to nauseating.

While this film is promising in it's setup, it just doesn't stay fly throughout the film's entirety, but some solid performances, and scenes make it what it is, straight up hilarious.
