Was it the greatest movie? Definitely not but it was enjoyable. Was it the greatest buddy bike movie? Yes, definitely. The movie, with the exception of the wasted scenes with John McGinley (who I like as an actor but disliked the character in the movie), was a great fun, family movie (oh and the skinny dipping scene with the family that showed up). We need a sequel.
Actors such as Michael Clarke Duncan, Mo'Nique, Mike Epps and Cedric the Entertainer have been persuaded by writer-director Malcolm D. Lee to do crass routines that should have gone out with minstrel shows.
Looking back, it's strange to remember that the first two movies were both hits, and that Paul Giamatti and Terrence Howard even saw enough in the premise to sign up for the original. At this point, it's really all just flab.
