So bad it's good
19 November 2001 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

I'm Bout It is a rare black film, that's so bad it's good. The acting is horrible, camera angles and cinematography are all done with a home camera and the script doesn't flow. I mean you can't help but laugh when a man is tied up and sweaty, replies to his captors by saying f**k you, like he's gonna do something. Watch this film with boys, I guarantee it'll cheer you up.
