Trivia

This move stars Ed Lover and Doctor Dre, hosts of Yo MTV Raps. Doctor Dre is sometimes confused with Dr. Dre, the prolific producer of NWA fame. The movie begins with the Dr. Dre song "A N**** Witta Gun" as an homage to this confusion; the song's chorus includes the line "Who's the man with the master plan?", which is fitting given the movie's title, "Who's the man?"

Good production, good laughs
27 December 2006 | by (Everything's got to be somewhere) – See all my reviews

Cards on the table: I'm a 46 year old white guy. I don't know Dre or Lover.

I like some slapstick, and some I don't. For your reference, I never much cared for Abbott & Costello or the 3 Stooges, but I love Laurel & Hardy and the Marx Brothers. Dre & Lover got lots of personality and good humor. Love watching their comedy routine -- the best part of the movie.

Ice-T has a small part, must be one of his first on the screen. Would like to see him in bigger parts; he's on TV a lot lately and he's an interesting actor.

The closing credits are playing to some hip-hop. The lyrics use the "N" word, but it occurs to me that I don't remember hearing it in the movie's dialog. It's the end of 2006 and it's finally going out of style, but avoiding it 13 years ago was a touch of class.

I've got Cinemax playing on the TV. The next movie is coming on, which they rate "MV" for Mild Violence. If I were to rate "Who's the Man," I wouldn't give it any violence rating. A gun was waived around menacingly, once. Otherwise, they're too busy having fun. Bring the kids. (Apparently, the professional movie-raters disagree. Maybe society has changed a lot in 13 years. Either that, or professional movie-raters are fuddy duddies.) -Neil-
