This Movie Is The Most…..Craziest and Stupidest films I have seen. But there’s more…The Movie is funny and entertaining and a good rap genre musical.The movie has: Sex Scene. Language. and Parody Violent Content.SPOILER: The funeral scene in a church where the man gave the dead man two black eyes because of some money he owed him. Now I give that a *** out of ****
This movie is a classic. I had wanted to see it when I was younger, but of course I wasn’t allowed to. I saw this a few months ago and it was even better now. This is one of Chris Rock’s best performances, he nails the role of a rapper perfectly (not to mention his costume…). The movie was one of the first to feature parody raps and they are great, considering this film was Pre-Insane Clown Posse and the like. "Sweat from my balls" still makes me laugh every time I hear it.Some might say this does not transfer to the new rap school, but It definitely does. If you were once a fan of oldschool rap or are still a fan of rap, this movie is definitely worth checking out.
This movie is one of my favorite satirical comedies right up there with Airplane…that’s right, up there with the big ‘A’. The group member’s names are perfect (Dead Mike and Stabmaster Arson particularly). The satirical rap songs in the movie are so well-written (parodies of old-school hits) that it’s easy to finish watching this movie and find yourself humming the songs. Of course, this movie has its share of sex jokes (Rip as a phone sex operator and Chris Rock sleeping with the big-haired groupie are a hoot) and lewd language (warning: f-word some 78 times).Go into the movie with a eye towards lambasting the rap industry and you should get some good laughs. Remember this was made still EARLY in Chris Rock’s career, the humor in this is not as fine-tuned as some of his newer stuff. I’ve heard Chris Rock thinks of this movie as his "one bad movie", but if you know even a little about the rap industry, you’ll love it. 7.5 outta 10.
