DON’T JUDGE ME!
Yes, I watched Malibu’s Most Wanted and it was not even the first time I have seen it. It’s a guilty pleasure of mine. During a long boring winter during college, a friend of mine and I would rent movies we expected to be terrible in the hopes of getting to laugh AT them. Malibu’s Most Wanted ended up being a movie we actually laughed WITH instead, although it is an incredibly stupid movie.
Jamie Kennedy plays a wannabe gangsta-type from the rich beach community of Malibu whose father is running for some elected office. Dad (played by Ryan O’Neal) is ashamed and worried his son’s antics will cost him the election. His campaign manager decides to hire two actors (Taye Diggs and Anthony Anderson) to trick him into thinking he’s been kidnapped and make sure he’s out of the spotlight until the election is over.
Things get even wackier from there and the plan unravels. I know, I know…It sounds idiotic and awful. You’re right, it IS idiotic but it’s actually kind of funny. Malibu’s Most Wanted is not something that I could recommend, but if you’re in the mood for a dumb comedy and find white guys acting black funny then by all means watch it.
I give it 2 white kongs out of 5.
