Gulity Pleasure
17 November 2001 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

This movie is a gulity pleasure. It takes us to a world where if you punch a guy he files in the air, girls ask you out and murder is cool. Run-DMC basically plays themselves on steriods in this hip hop semi classic. If you haven't seen it, see if you can find it.
