By far the best thing the Wayans brothers ever did
If you know Keenen Ivory Wayans and Damon Wayans ONLY for their TV work or movies such as Major Payne or Scary Movie, then you have only seen them at their most mediocre. Unlike these other works, the jokes are not are consistently funny.
The film is a very funny send-off of the terrible Blaxploitation films of the 70s. The jokes come one after another after another and very few of them miss the mark. It is pure mindless fun from start to finish. Additionally, many old stars of the genre are here, though I might have enjoyed seeing a few more of them.
One word of warning though: if you are a die-hard, bleeding-heart, politically correct individual, this movie MIGHT give you a heart attack! We showed this movie to such a friend and we eventually had to turn off the video because she was having heart palpitations! But, for everyone else, this is a hilarious film. Also, it may help to try watching a couple Blaxploitation films FIRST to help you understand the parody better.
FYI–Because of the language and brief nudity, this is not a film for the kids. My advice to parents is to watch the film secretly and then feign shock when your kids ask to see it! When the kids are at least teens, then it’s probably okay to let them know the truth–that this is a great little comedy.
You can either go out that window, or you can watch this film
Hilarious parody of the ‘blaxploitation’ period in which Keenen Ivory Wayans plays a returned serviceman, desperate to find out the cause of his brother’s untimely death. The official cause of death has been determined as O.G. – over gold, of chains, bling in general – but Keenen’s convinced that the local mob, led by the aptly titled Mr Big (Vernon) is responsible. He enlists the aid of a number of former ‘black heroes’ to challenge Mr Big and his cronies.
With a cast lifted from the very films it satirises (Casey, Hayes, Brown, Fargas), Keenen has managed to incorporate sage humour with colourful slapstick comedy. The highlights are too frequent to list, but the scene in which a young Chris Rock tries to buy an order of ribs is as good as they come. It’s rare that most (if not perhaps all) of the jokes succeed in a parody, by Keenen has achieved a resounding success in that regard. Cleverly, there’s no esoteric references to the blaxploitation films that might confuse the viewer; basic references are well sign-posted, so anyone can enjoy the satire.
Aside from the leads, the entire supporting cast excels, although veteran character actor Clu Gulager’s role appears more prominently in the film’s early stages, than he’s subsequently featured. Kadeem Hardison and Damon Wayans (one of many of the Wayans brothers appearing) are an hilarious couple of Mr Big’s goons, while the late Steve James (recognisable from the “American Ninja” franchise) is a deft piece of characterisation, as a chop-socky homage named ‘Kung-Fu Joe’. A smirk or wry smile here and there attests to the fact that the cast appear to be having a lot of enjoyment with their zany characterisations.
The praise is endless and so are the laughs. Sets and props often look TV quality, but the catchy music, sharp dialogue and sensational cast more than compensate. A top shelf parody without pretense.
