Did You Know?


According to Dave Chappelle on The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986), a scene was written during filming in which his character was to wear a dress while disguised as a prostitute. Chappelle adamantly refused. The writers complained to the producers who then tried to convince Chappelle to do the scene but he still refused. According to Chappelle, he felt that it was part of a disturbing trend in which African-American men wear dresses in films. See more »

Good mindless fun
4 August 2002 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Personally I enjoyed this. I often just want to sit down, relax, ad watch a film that I don't have to think about and will make me laugh. This fits the bill perfectly and I throughly enjoyed it.

A lot of people wold put down this film, mostly in my opinion to make themselves look sophisticated. I think if most people were honest they would say they had liked this film, at least to a certain extent.
