Duncan is a genius straight A student, Blade is juvenile delinquent. But because of a mix up with their school records, everyone thinks each is the other one. Now, Duncan kind of likes the attention from being thought of as a real bad dude, if only the school bully would stop trying to rough him up. And Blade definitely likes being thought of as important instead of as trouble, if only the teacher would stop hitting on him for a date. Written by

When the real Duncan is kicking the field goals look at the goal posts and notice the old rusty one and the new pretty one. See more »
[Blade is trying to teach Duncan how to talk slang]
Did you hear me? I said that was stupid.
Did you hear me? I said, "Thanks."
Are you deaf?
[misunderstood as "def"]
Man, I'm the defest brotha on this block!
[still misunderstood as "def"]
I think Blade Brown is the biggest asshole on the planet.

When this movie came out I was just seventh or either grade.
I can say with all honesty I was probably a mix of Duncan Pinderhughes and Blade Brown.
Academic, but didn't take no crap off anyone either.
My wife and I sat down and watched this one when it came on cable a few nights ago.
It's extremely funny and original in plot.
I don't know why this movie was met with such poor regards.
So much so that Kid N Play have been banished from public eye pretty much. Some people view these guys as fads, their time came and went, but I think they just didn't get the credit they deserved. Plus they rapped about things on a positive note, when rap was taking it's harder, more thug based turn. The last acting appearance of Kid was the extremely small part he had in the Temptation's biopic in 1998. Play has left show business and is a born again Christian so I hear.
The entire chase scene in the wax museum is hilarious.
The thing I thought was funny was the every major character seemed to have their own "entrance" song.
Wedge, Damita, Blade...everyone had their own tune whenever they came on screen.
Something "Friday" would later borrow from.
Extremely funny and worth a view if you want to travel back to a time when rap was about a little more than killing, smoking and getting "crunk".
