Story of a promising high school basketball star and his relationships with two brothers, one a drug dealer and the other a former basketball star fallen on hard times and now employed as a security guard.
"Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking your Juice in the Hood" is a parody of a lot of black U.S. movies, for instance "Boyz n the Hood", "South Central", "Menace II Society", "Higher Learning" and "Juice". We follow Ashtray as he returns to the place he grew up in and meet his father and his basket-case friends. Crazy stuff happens. For example, Ashtray is older than his father and his best friend Loc Dog's grandmother is a trigger-happy old lady who blames her eccentric-looking kid for not being tough enough. Written by

Loc Dog warns Ashtray about how promiscuous Dashiki is, and does so by saying, "She got more kids than Ms. Wayans." That is a joke in which Marlon Wayans (Loc Dog) is actually referring to his real-life mother who has ten children, which include him and Shawn Wayans (Ashtray) as well as Keenen Ivory Wayans the mailman.

During the scene when Ash Tray and Loc Dogg are arrested by the racist cop for being "black on a Friday night", the driver's-side hubcaps on the police car disappear between shots. See more »
Never forget, man. Either they don't know... or don't show or just don't care... about bein' a menace to South Central while they drink their juice in the hood. That's what it's all about, Tray. That's what it's all about.
What the fuck is he talkin' about?

This movie is wonderful. It points out all of the absurdities of the earlier 'hood movies. You need to have seen most of the movies being parodied in order to see the true depth of the humor in this movie.
Absolutely one of my favorite light comedies with "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" and "Half Baked". I can't put it in a category with "Airplane" because that is the standard by which all other parodies are measured.
