"Kuffs" came under fire from parental and community groups when released theatrically in the US for its violence and profanity. The protesters felt the film well exceeded the PG-13 rating and should have been rated R. See more »

This movie is one of my favorites. I saw one scene of it (the dry cleaning store scene) when I was 8, but I was too young to care. Fast-forward to about 2 weeks ago, when my mom rented me some movies, and I fell in love with Kuffs.
Christian Slater pretty much plays the same character: a smart-alec with the ability to kick some @$$. I love the way he can play that role in this movie, with a hilarious joke or monologue to the viewers just about every other minute!
Sure, it has its rough spots: the action could have been better, and I would have liked to see a little more of Milla Jovovich, but overall, it's a winner.
I give it a 9 out of 10.
