Trivia

When Slammer (Jim Brown) asks Jack Spade (Keenen Ivory Wayans), "What makes you think you can be a black hero?", Spade responds by saying, "I'm an ex-football player," and Slammer backs off. Brown played football for the Cleveland Browns from 1957-1965 and is in the NFL Hall of Fame. 'Bernie Casey' was also a professional football player before becoming an actor, as was 'Fred Williamson', another movie hero. See more »

Goofs

The bandage that Jack Spade wraps around his finger, originally onto his right index finger when injured in the building, appears on his left index finger once the fight scene is over and he's outside with Cheryl, Slade and his mother. See more »

A Wacky Movie
25 July 2000 | by (Any Ghetto, U.S.A) – See all my reviews

"I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" is a blast! Keenan Ivory Wayans wrote, directed, and starred in this spoof of blaxploitation movies and I've got to say, He did a very accurate job. This is REALLY how blaxploitation movies look and feel like, right down to the huge hats. The funniest part in the movie is when the nightclub singer is singing...Oh, Can't spoil a joke. Or when the Youth Gang Competition...Can't spoil that either. Even as a bonus, Isaac "Wrote Best Movie Song on Earth" Hayes is in the movie and the "Shaft" theme gets played!!!!! TWICE!!!!!! So Jump in Your Car, Drive to a video store and rent it. If they don't have it, than steal it from the guy who rented it! **** out of ****
