“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

How bad is it? Bad enough.
Should you see it? No.
Nick Cannon stars in this "21 Jump Street" meets "Beverly Hills Cop" would-be action comedy. A cop is sent undercover to an elite school to infiltrate a car theft ring. So there's basketball as well as the usual stereotypes and chase scenes. There's little character development, nothing in the plot that isn't ticking boxes of what studios think can be marketed and not one good joke.
