On This Day In Comedy… In 2002 ‘All About The Benjamins’ Was Released By Newline Cinema



On This Day In Comedy on March 8, 2002, All About the Benjamins was released by Newline Cinema

Teaming Ice Cube and Mike Epps up again, this action comedy is about diamond thieves and the tale of tracking them down.   Cube is a bounty hunter, Epps a criminal. They pair up to get the crooks and a winning lottery ticket Epps needs to retrieve.  There’s plenty of running, multiple shootouts, some murders, a kidnapping, a tasing, a neck breaking, several escapes, a lot of yelling, scenes of mild torture, a boat crash, along with various chases, some searching, plotting, planning, handcuffing and conniving.     

All About the Benjamins was directed by Kevin Bray and produced by Ice Cube and Matt Alvarez.     It featured Eva Mendes, Roger Guenveur Smith, Tommy Flanagan, Carmen Chaplin, Anthony Michael Hall, Bob Carter and Bow Wow.   The critics hated the film. They thought it was crude and offensive with way too much violence. The fans loved it because of everything the critics hated.  

On a budget of $15 million, All About the Benjamins grossed $26,306,533 at the box office.
