In this comedy, bumbling Harlem barbers Dr. Dre and Ed Lover are shipped off to the police academy by their frustrated boss, Nick (Jim Moody). However, when a crooked land developer threatens to forcibly take over their ex-boss' land, it is up to Dr. Dre and Ed to use their new-found police powers to stop him. A number of well-known rap artists make appearances in this film, including Queen Latifah, Humpty Hump, Kriss Kross, B-Real, and Ice-T.

Critic Reviews for Who's the Man?

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

A lot of the humor, though, seems to spring from the personalities and relationships of Dr. Dre and Ed Lover themselves, who, like Cheech and Chong and Laurel and Hardy and the teams mentioned in the movie, have an easy chemistry.

Billing itself as the first hip-hop whodunit, Who's the Man? can be best appreciated by hardcore rap fans, who can chuckle at the sight of their idols in Harlem version of Around the World in Eighty Days.

I don't want to give this film a bad 'rap'...but it really does suck
