Storyline

Upon learning that their mother owes $5,000 to the IRS, a quartet of siblings endeavor to find a way to scare up the cash. Three of them decide to sign up for a local hip-hop contest. Unfortunately the trio really stinks. Fortunately, the youngest would-be singer meets up with ex-rap star Kendrick Bragg (AKA Kick'nBak Flash, played by Hammer/AKAStanley Kirk Burrell). A kindly fellow, he decides to help them out. But with their lack of talent and less than a week to go, things look grim until the group is able to convince their reluctant fourth sibling (the one with real talent) to pitch in for their mama and do his stuff on stage.

Another hour and a half of my life wasted.
5 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Phoned work sick - watched this in bed and it was so awful I would have went back to work if I could have gotten out of bed. The dog ran off with the remote so I was stuck.

I'm positive Hammer was grooming the eldest daughter to become his beeeatch.

Horrendous to watch - made me vomit more than what I was doing anyway. So there you have it - this would be the film that they play in the waiting room of Hell before you go in. Or maybe your stuck in the film for all eternity with the Hart kids. Just remember to take a gun with you....
