Essential for a blaxploit/Rudy fan, but too much filler...
10 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

Rudy Ray is great, of course, and we're treated to clips from relatively recent performances (yep, he can still do it!) and plenty of prints from his "party record" comedy days, and of course, loads of the clips you love from his four movies. Also, it's a blast hearing him tell his own story--and no one can rhyme like the legend himself! If that were all there were to it, it'd be perfect; unfortunately, we get plenty of inane commentary from people with nothing to say. Worth renting, but you'll want to FF through the scenes Mr. Rude isn't in.
