hilarious, craptastic parody
14 March 2007 | by (California) – See all my reviews

A few years ago a friend of mine loaned me this video. It was part of a promotion Hollywood Video had a number of years ago in which they gave first-time filmmakers the opportunity to get a release of their movies through the chain. The series was uneven (check out "The Road to Filn-Flon," the best of the bunch), but "Shafted!" is amusing, if not stellar. The idea is that the white protagonist is essentially unaware (or doesn't care) that he is not the black, system-hating character he thinks he is. This careens from gag to gag in hit-or-miss fashion, parodying the "blaxplotiation" movement of the seventies. Best moment: his session with his black doctor/love interest. It's as predictable as a sunset, but is funny in fits and starts. 6/10
