All About the Benjamins New Line Platinum Series DVD Description
Small time hustler Reggie Wright (Mike Epps) is a con man and perpetual target of Miami bounty hunter Bucum Jackson (Ice Cube). One afternoon Bucum chases Reggie into a commercial shoot where they stumble upon a diamond heist culminating in a multiple slaying. Both men feel lucky to make it out alive, but they also feel a need to return to the case. While Bucum seeks a major bust to boost his standing as an investigator, Reggie must recover a winning lottery ticket that was lost in the getaway car. This unlikely duo pair up to take down the powerful crime syndicate responsible with unwanted assistance from the women in their lives (Eva Mendes and Valarie Rae Miller).
Unnecessarily sadistic, this bombastic buddy picture is sprinkled with missing frame action effects, villains with European accents, and exotic fish. Like the Ice Cube vehicle FRIDAY, the star doubles as screenwriter and plays a straight man to his co-star. In this case, the counterpart is Mike Epps who cracks wise and utilizes his vocal talents to provide the humor in this action comedy.
