Hilarious
17 June 1999 | by (Selbyside - St. Paul, MN USA) – See all my reviews

African-American comedies have always appealed to me. Movies like HOUSE PARTY, CLASS ACT, and DON'T BE A MENACE TO...... After seeing movies like I GOT THE HOOK UP and FRIDAY, I started to lose my feel for them. But I was going through my video library and came upon WHO'S THE MAN?. The movie had some down right funny jokes, fast paced, and good music. It was also interesting to see an all-star hip-hop cast. Give this one a try.
