I've only seen Dead Presidents and From Hell, which I thought were both good movies, but this is TheHughes Brothers best film and this is so far the best ghetto film I'veever seen. Just remember: cross at the green, never in between Honestly, you will not like this movie at all if you haven't seen any ghetto movies or don't understand ghetto humor. There was not so much a plot as there was a series of jokes showing black people in a less than positive light. This movie isn't a total spoof of movies with a couple of original jokes here and there. It has a good message, butin some ways, I thought the film Boyz N the Hood showed the message ina better way.
He got the job anyway. Music is excellent and it has many quality details from the production creating the right atmosphere. It is a very funny movie and will keep you laughing the whole way through. Overall, this was a veryneat ghetto film by The Hughes Brothers. It has a good message, and it has some very moving moments init. The Wayans brothers are good in whatever movie they are in so go watch 'White Chicks' and the first two Scary Movie's.
Those Wayans brothers have it down. The man pulled out an even bigger gun. Sorry if I got carried away with the review, this one deserves a big text and a 9. Later in the movie, Ashtray must decide whether he wants to make a commitment to Dashiki. One of my personal favorite comedies. If either of these things are true, see this movie. Before long, Ashtray's nuclear-armed gangster cousin Loc Dog Marlon Wayans introduces him to a bizarrely comic crime underworld.
Not extremely culturally-important fare, but a good laugh, nonetheless. The opening briefly shows Caine getting caught up in a grocery storeshooting with his friend. They really know what they are doing, disguising it as social commentary. It deals with everything that is happening in the world with teens in the hood: Pregnancy, Drive-by's, Drug Addiction, and many other things. Luckily, Ashtray falls for urban poet Dashiki Tracey Cherelle Jones , and she convinces him to go straight -- but he must deal with her manic ex-boyfriend Toothpick Darrel Heath. The action wasgood and the movie was extremely powerful. The film was very good, on all levels this issure the best Hughes Brothers film.
If you are a fan of spoofs you'll love this one. It also helps if you have seen the films 'Don't be a menace to society' 'Juice' and 'Boys in the hood'. This film may have reached the limit. During the opening credits, we see footageof the Watts riots that took place during the 60's. At least I saw an edited version.
The movie chronicles the exploits of a young black man whose mother returns him to the 'hood to live and learn from his father. What I like about this film, is that it is exactly what it's supposed to be. Ashtray arrives in the 'hood' in a car driven by his mother, who wants Ashtray to live with his father. If you enjoyed this, I also recommend Boyz N the Hood, and you'llprobably enjoy the Wayans brothers' spoof, Don't be a Menace to SouthCentral While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. In the movie's first five minutes, two young black men are gunned down. Shawn plays the steady bass while Marlon does some wild riffing.
. Loc Dog had a larger gun. Will Ashtray be able to keep living the straight life? I won't say what job, but it suited him. The thing that makes it a lot funnier is that no matter what age, gender, race you are there is something in this film that is mocking you but it is done in such a way that you can't help laughing and realising how true it is. The mother will not be seen again, because, as she says, there can be no positive black women in this movie. It feels good you know hmmmmmmmmmm. The acting was good, Tyrin Turner, I've never reallyheard of and Larenz Tate I've see in Dead Presidents.
Asked 'What do you say? They seem to be the only ones who can do what Zucker used to: serve up what are generally called spoofs. But the laughs soon started up again. Ashtray meets a girl named Dashiki, who is described as having more children than Mrs. He is introduced to those children, all sitting in a row, some not even black like their mother. I highly recommend this movie for anyone who just needs a good laugh and does not care about quality or being offended. Thus we laugh with them, appreciating the way they pull it off, and recognizing the gangsta genre limit that's getting parodied, rather than at the bit itself. Well seriously, this film for some reason other than being a spoof and having the same actors as Scary Movie, gets compared to the aforementioned film.
I thought that a 9 was okay, but I'll stick with 10, and if you haven't seen this movie yet, rent it, buy it, wait 'til television show it, but, see it, you won't be regret. Probably the funniest scene is when they enter a convenience store. When you see it, you're gonna like it a lot. About halfway through the movie, either I became immune to the jokes or the movie ran out of creative energy. The black cop seemed to genuinely hate blacks without even seeming aware he was himself black.
