Synopsis

When the hottest DJ around (Usher) inadvertently saves the life of a Mafia princess (Chriqui), the reward for his bravery is a job protecting the woman from danger.

Dove Review

Another film that could have, with a few small changes that would have made little difference in the end result, received the family-friendly seal. It had many enjoyable scenes and funny moments but unfortunately the completely unnecessary sexual innuendo and language put it just over acceptable limits. Usher did an acceptable portrayal of the “accidental” bodyguard and both my guest and I enjoyed his first performance in a feature film. We did feel it would be important to mention that stereotypes were rampant and greatly mocked in this flick. It seemed as if the audience recognized the humor intended but if laughter at the expense of Italian mobsters or African-American DJ wanna-be’s are not your idea of funny, this movie definitely would not fit your taste.
