For what this movie was it was perfect. I first watched this when I was an ignorant kid but I can still appreciate it now that I'm an ignorant college student. Phil Hartman could not have been better but that should not be surprising if you're one of the many out there that deems him a genius like myself. Sinbad did his part and contributed to many laughs. The story is what you'd expect with an underachiever from the hood hooking up with some white surburbians. Sinbad's job is to bring us into the lilly white community of Zwickley and deconstruct the Puritan values and customs that everyone has become accustomed to. Sinbad makes white people let loose by passing around a wine bottle and dance to "Brick House." Sounds great doesn't it? But if you're looking for mind perplexing subject matter you're in the wrong place to begin with. Sit back, laugh, and enjoy a very underrated '90's comedy. One of the few leading role works by the late Phil Hartman.
