what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie is extremely raunchy and includes just about every kind of material except for graphic violence that parents try to keep away from kids. Parents whose kids do see this movie should at least try to talk with them about the portrayal of women (either sexual predators, compliant bimbos or terrifying harridans) and minorities and drugs as a way to bond and to escape worries.

Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: It's vulgar and raggy, but also very funny.

Audience Reviews

2 stars

A half wit follow up to a semi-descent movie. When Chris Tucker won't sign up for a sequel, it's usually a bad sign. Mike Epps was a horrible addition to the cast, reducing everything to bad punchlines. While it does have some good elements, the bad certainly outweighs the good.

Probably the weakest out of the trilogy, but still not that bad. The Mexican guy is super-annoying and very stereotypical, but a break from the big-as-fuck villains like Deebo and Damon. Epps is a nice change of pace from Tucker.

Hilarious. I think it was just as good as the first one.
