Trivia:
Shawn Wayans's character early in the film states that his father is only a few years older than him. This is making fun of the fact that Cuba Gooding Jr. is only 7 years younger than Laurence Fishburne who played father and son in Boyz n the Hood (1991).See more »

Hilarious, 23 July 2000
Author: keith_b from North Carolina

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.
