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.

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.

How could somebody let this crap into a theater???

"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.
