When Washington desperately needs a presidential candidate just weeks before the election, they need someone sure to lose. They pick Mays Gilliam (Chris Rock), an unknown local politician from a down-and-out D.C. neighbourhood, to be their puppet. But if Mays is going to run, he's going to have fun. He's bringing in his brother Mitch (Bernie Mac), a hardcore bail bondsman, as his running mate and running his campaign into party central. Now, Gilliam's gaining in the polls and on his way to making history.
Boring and not that funny.
- Head of State review by CP Customer
I like Chris Rock, as a stand-up comic he's fearless and very, very funny. What's sad is that as a comedy actor he makes the most mainstream, audience friendly, average films going, and what's even more sad is that they ain't very funny and this is no exception. The story isn't that interesting, there's very few laughs and even for a Chris Rock fan a wasted rental.
