Kevin, this is my calling. I have to make the world a safer place for my children.
Your children? You've got to be with a *woman* first! You've got to knock some boots, man! You're a virgin.
No, I'm a gentleman.
Obviously this is what you need to do to work through Grandma's death. *But*... we're gonna do it my way.
Okay, Karate Man!
That's your crimefighter name.

Being a tremendous superhero nerd, I loved everything about Blankman! The hokey jokes, costumes and plot. Damon Wayans must have watched all the old 60's Batman shows, as did I, and loved all the garishness of it, just as I did. Anytime I watch a movie and think..."I would make this movie EXACTLY the same way", means that it's one that I will always watch on TV, and even buy on DVD. I loved the "Blank Station", the references to David Alan Grier's superhero character as "The Other Guy" still make me laugh out loud. Yeah it has toilet humor, yeah it's a goofy parody of a goofy medium, but that just makes me love it even more. And even, God help us, Robin Givens is good enough in her role to make the whole ride an enjoyable one.
