Malibu's Most Wanted stars Jamie Kennedy (Scream) as a white boy named Brad (or, as he prefers it, B-Rad) from the beach community north of L.A. who thinks he's a hip-hop star on the verge of discovery. His wannabe rap star persona is an embarrassment to his father's political campaign, so his father's handlers hire two actors (Anthony Anderson and Taye Diggs) to pretend to be ghetto gangsters, kidnap B-Rad, and "scare the black out of him." The movie's main source of comedy is that these prissy actors are no more street than B-Rad, so they're posing even more than he is. Malibu's Most Wanted isn't the Scary Movie-style lampoon you might expect; it's actually a surprisingly earnest character comedy about the cultural behaviors people use to identify themselves. This approach may get in the way of some potential laughs, but it also gives the movie some heart. --Bret Fetzer ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Funny!!!
I was pleasantly surprised by "Malibu's Most Wanted"! It actually turned out to be a very funny movie. I was a little skeptical at first, but I can't deny that there were moments where I was laughing very hard.

The story revolves around Brad (a.k.a. B-rad), a rich kid from Malibu, who has completely taken on the thug lifestyle. Although he's never really left Malibu and gone to the real "streets" of L.A., he still feels that he's from the hood. Brad seems to be hurting his father's campaign to become governor, so two actors are hired to scare Brad "white". What happens to Brad, the actors, and an ambitious young lady will have you rolling!

Not only was Jamie Kennedy very good in his role as Brad, but I especially liked Taye Diggs' and Anthony Anderson's portrayals as actors trying to find their motivation for acting like thugs, which was very hard for the classically-trained characters.

Although the critics have been somewhat harsh while reviewing this movie, I would definitely suggest it. It's a cute movie that you can see when you want to have a good laugh. See for yourself!!![.]

4-0 out of 5 stars This Sistah Loves Jamie Kennedy!
Jamie Kennedy is the bomb! Malibu's Most Wanted could have used some work but Kennedy plays the lead character with style and keeps you laughing when the film gets its worse. I've always liked Jamie since Scream because of his unique comedic style. He never ceases to amaze. In Malibu's Most Wanted Jamie gives the audience a lot to think about AND laugh at.

B-Rad ( Kennedy ) becomes the subject of a brutal joke. His father ( Ryan O'Neal ) inlists his campaign manager ( Blair Underwood ) to help him deal with his son. The problem is O'Neal's running for office and B-Rad's hip-hop antics are costing him votes. Thus, the kidnap plot of the year begins. And may I say it was a very funny and unique plot. We present Anthony Anderson and Taye Diggs ( two of the most popular black actors today ) playing actors. They know as much about the 'hood as B-Rad does so when they are hired to play gangstas and kidnap B-Rad the comedy really starts. They bring in a sistah, Shondra ( Regina Hall )to tempt B-Rad and she does just that. He ends up falling head over heels in love with her. Shondra finds herself attracted to him as well and why not? Jamie's hot whether he's white or black. I thought the transformation Anderson and Diggs did from actors to criminals was one of the funniest in the film but stands behind B-Rad hands down. Jamie rocked the house and though the film was cliched and stereotypical, you get a lot of laughs. I was hoping the film would stay original but it ended up being another Bringing Down The House, except Malibu's Most Wanted had more intelligence when it came to its audience. It didn't try to insult by having a bunch of black people do stupid things. What it did was educate in its own way showing that hip hop can truly be a culture of many flavors and can be used to bring people together. It may seem sappy but in the end you get a nice, multicultural comedy filled with interracial romance, rap stars, talking rats, bumping and grinding and all around fun. In the end B-Rad learns more about himself than he thought he would and so do we.

I think this film is worth a look and believe me, I love intelligent films. This film may not be the calibur of Hamlet but it wasn't supposed to be. I think people forget that this was a COMEDY, a film to watch to have a good time. You don't always have to have a film that's socially and politically correct. I'm a black woman and nothing in this film offended me. I appreciated the effort and loved the fresh spin on how blacks and whites relate to hip hop. This may not be your cup of tea and that's fine. But as Jamie Kennedy says in the film " Don't be hatin' " which is a fine line if you think about it. Especially if you haven't given the movie a true chance. I'd just watch it all over again for Jamie if nothing else. He is so fine. Give the film a chance and draw your own conclusions.

Talk about taking a stereotype to the extreme! And someone please tell Anthony Anderson he cannot act is even less funny. Go away please.

3-0 out of 5 stars Just barely three stars
Why would I watch a film like this? Well I have a teenage son and he and his friends think it's a crack up and have watched it many times over. I try and keep abreast on what they watch and like and so I gladly sat through this one twice.
I wouldn't own it, but my kids do and it's not all that bad of a flick. It's mostly a coming of age morality tale and the message it sends is mostly good and wholesome. It's probably not a good movie for the real young, but for most teens it's got nothing too bad and it's entertaining enough. ... Read more

A family film for an era when "family film" means scatological jokes, gratuitous violence, and shapeless storytelling, See Spot Run is about par for the course. Punctuated by many a lowbrow moment (scenes of combustible zebra flatulence, for instance), Spot has trouble staying true to its major story line despite the latter's redeeming qualities. That story concerns an FBI-trained bull mastiff who flees the wrath of a mobster (Paul Sorvino) and ends up in the care of a pooch-averse postman (David Arquette) and the latter's little neighbor (Angus T. Jones). With a nutball like Arquette in the lead (and vigorous support work from comic Anthony Anderson of Me, Myself, and Irene), the antics come fast and furious, including a wild bit of slapstick in which Arquette simultaneously gets his head stuck in a fishbowl and his body densely wrapped in helium-inflated plastic. On the other hand, there's a touching simplicity to the relationship between man and canine, each of whom has been terribly lonely in his own way. Sure, the filmmakers went for some cheap laughs, but there is much else here that is harder-earned. --Tom Keogh ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't See Spot Run
Corny, corny, corny. I never did like shows about dogs, and this one is particularly stale. The plot, yet again, is ridiculously bad and the script must have been chewed on several times before it was finally processed. Everything I can think of about this movie is low-grade. Even the name implies that it's pretty stupid stuff. But it's these kinds of movies that kids will enjoy, though it does have some questionable humor that only adults would ever fully appreciate. I give See Spot Run two stars instead of just one because there were some moments of glory, some magical scenes in there that actually proved quite funny. See Spot Run makes a good family show, but if your intent isn't to hold the kids off for a couple hours, then please... there's no need to see this movie.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's not THAT bad
In "See Spot Run," David Arquette stars as a bewildered mailman named Gordon who unwillingly runs into and starts keeping a dog named Spot, while also babysitting the son of the woman (Leslie Bibb) he has a crush on. Little does Gordon and the boy know that Spot just happens to be an FBI dog with a nose for mischievous people.

Ok, let me start by saying that the rumors you've probably heard by now are true. "See Spot Run" is TERRIBLE plot-wise, script wise, and so on. Parts, such as the story, are so terrible that some people might give up on it before they even finish watching it. Luckily for myself, I don't put most of the emphasis on a movie's script, story, etc., when I'm watching it and giving it my thoughts in a review. I mainly judge movies, especially comedies, by how entertaining they are.

"See Spot Run" has a bunch of parts that are simply hilarious. Whether Gordon is getting too familiar with a slop of dog feces or a zebra causes an explosion, "See Spot Run" is hilarious.

If you like comedy films just as long as they're funny, then I recommend getting "See Spot Run."

3-0 out of 5 stars See Spot sit calmly and make everyone else run
(...)

First of all, the main character isn't a dog or a Mac-player. No, far from it. Suddenly it becomes a movie where the audience has to feel for David Arquette, who plays the stereotypical underdog (much like Jim Carrey's Stanley Ipkiss character from 1994's The Mask). David Arquette is usually so darn obnoxious that it's hard to believe you could ever relate to him. But this part allows him the freedom to play the sort of character that works best in this film. See Spot Run is like a more family-friendly version of Turner & Hooch, much quirkier too. One of my favorite scenes takes place in a pet store (imagine that, in a movie about a dog). And just when you think there couldn't be any more destruction in this set, all orchestrated to a cute pop song - "The Hamster Dance" - the film pulls a fast one on you!

The only thing that I think drags this film down, is that the dog plays smarter than the master. That's something we all know has been done before, and better. This dog is kind of an annoying, more intelligent entity than any of the people. But I loved the way the young boy's mother ends up not becoming the focus of the movie's plot. As always happens in lesser movies like this, the guy is always worrying more about impressing the woman than he is keeping his life together.

Nothing falls apart in this movie, things just go haywire. The damage is, often like it is in real life- artificial and not beyond repair. Surprises abound. The biggest surprise for me, was how I was able to actually keep watching. How I wanted VERY MUCH to see what was going to happen next. This was partly reinforced by the twisting of conventions throughout the move- but mainly I was shocked by how utterly enigmatic David Arquette is in this movie.

During my favorite scene in See Spot Run, in which he gets locked out of his apartment ending up in nothing but a long t-shirt, I found myself thinking thoughts I'd never thought about him before. I would never in a million years have figured him for a hunk. But after seeing him soaked by the sprinklers, that thin white cloth tightly wrapped around his beautifully firmed, round butt (which also has never been this generously large in portion before) - it's clear to me that he's got everything he needs for me to RECONSIDER him... This Arquette's got the beef in this movie- I always felt he should put on some weight.

But anyway, considering how many other family films are a LOT less appropriate for families than this, this movie is practically a breath of fresh air.

5-0 out of 5 stars Funny, Funny, Funny!
If you like comedy, you'll love this movie! It has great slapstick humor combined with a touching story about a boy that becomes attached to a lost FBI dog. The dog helps catch two big league crime bosses and then has to choose between serving with the FBI or staying with the boy.

1-0 out of 5 stars This is the dummest!
Please don't watch this unintelligent movie!!!!!! I can't put into words how stupid it is. It may have a few amusing parts but it is all based on crudity and plain stupidity. Why would anyone want to waste their time watching a bunch of stupid and sloppy humans? Good grief, don't we see enough of that in real life? Please, if you're looking for good comedy go with an older, time proven classic. This is one big waste of time! Liberals, people with low I.Q., and politcally correct followers will love this movie! As for the rest of us, skip this brainless movie. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Show EVER!
Read some of the other reviews.This was the BEST show on television!It was WAY ahead of its time...probably why it only made it 6 episodes on FOX!Thank GOD F/X showed all 13 episodes the following summer.Place your e-mail and let Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (wwwDOTspheDOTcom) know that we NEED this on dvd!Also go to wwwDOTtvshowsondvdDOTcom and vote for a season release.GOD was this the best show!

5-0 out of 5 stars THEY BETTER RELEASE THIS ON DVD!
this is the greatest show ever!if you haven't seen it, you're really missing out.PLEASE enter your email address so maybe it will be released!!my vhs copies taped off tv are starting to wear out so PLEASE RELEASE THE DVD SOON!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars This unparalleled TV comedy should be on DVD by now !!!
So I'm reviewing a DVD that doesn't exist (yet). The main reason I'm writing anything at all is to urge anyone who stumbles upon this to enter your email address above, requesting to be informed by Amazon should this title ever actually make it to DVD. There's no obligation to buy, but entering your email address will count as a vote toward convincing the studio to release this incredibly clever, outrageously funny and stingingly accurate TV show from 1999 (Fox). The 13 half-hour episodes, plus a few bonus features, would fit nicely on 2 discs. Starring Jay Mohr and an outstanding ensemble cast, plus some big Hollywood names playing, and satirizing, themselves, it's as good as any TV comedy I've ever seen. I've been a huge fan of The Honeymooners, Barney Miller, Taxi, Cheers, Bosom Buddies, Seinfeld, Friends, Sports Night, Arrested Development, Scrubs and, recently, The Office (the Steve Carell version - haven't caught the British original yet). If your TV comedy tastes are even remotely close to mine, you will absolutely love Action. ... Read more
