Darryl Witherspoon is a college student who wants to win annual junior analyst competition, which can land him a job in a big brokerage company.

But because he hardly earns any money, and that of what he does, he gives to his family, he becomes a guinea pig for a drug developed at the college which is promised to heighten all senses by ten times....

The first thing you notice about watching any movie starring Wayans from Mo' Money, right up to The Heat, is the fact that the man doesn't age, and it can really put you off track when you are trying to follow the movie. Seriously though, the man has looked about twenty two for over twenty years.

And that's about the most interesting thing about this generic, not very funny high concept comedy. Wayans is okay, but whilst watching it, I kept thinking Eddie Murphy would have done this better in 1988, and Akroyd would have been great as the Spade character. Plus it could have been the old sweary Murphy too.

So hilarity ensues when Darryl starts to experience heightened sense. He sees women's derrières up close, he smells people's breath, and hears people on the toilet, you can tell where the rest of the humour goes.

Spade though, is brilliant as the adversary, here ally oozes slime, and would have been better suited to this type of role, he's easily the best thing about this.

The plot is predictable, and it turns out predictable. Just as things are going great for Darryl, something happens with the drug, and makes things go bad for a while, and then things get better again.

Don't be fooled by the fact that its directed by the same person who did Wayne's World, That's all down to Mike Myers.

This is generic toilet humour with very little going for it.

i watched this film a few years ago and tried to buy it on region 2 dvd, its never been available on region 2, so i bought it on region 1 and ended up buying a multi region dvd player just to watch it! its so funny, my fav part is when he is taking a test and he can hear much much louder than anyone else due to getting paid to be a guinea pig in scientific tests and the sound of everyones pencils writing at the same time is deafening to him. starring one of my fav actors marlon wayons.

The film is great and in good quality but when I purchased the DVD it did not state that it is not highly compatible with english DVD players, after a good 30 minutes of changing the audio settings we managed to get it to play in english but it also plays german subtitles along with it that we are unable to remove when watching the DVD.

So, so funny. You always expect the brother's films to be funny but they always seem to surprise me how funny they can get.

I saw this film for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it is a true comedy, marlon wayans is super in this film as a student who manages to get super senses after becoming a guinea pig for a scientist. This may not be his best film ( dont be a menace in south central while drinking juice in the hood, is his best ) it still makes you laugh so get some mates round and have a laugh at his attempts to get his dream job.

marlon wayans learns the hard way to follow instructions while trying to compete for a top executive job. as mentioned by others the humour will have you rolling in your seats. other good movies with similiar humour would be major payne,blankman,a low down dirty shame with damon wayans the black blad headed actor from the last boyscout.

I was surprised the first time I watched this there are some very funny moments but what would you expect from Marlon Wayans of Scary Movie and Mo' Money fan. A story of a college student whom starts to take an experimental which inhanses the senses, but it all goes wrong(well what would yon expect) rendering `Wayans` with only 4 of his senses leading to some great comedy moments when you watch, such as at the basketball game. So to some up get some friends round and watch this laugh-a-minute comedy.
