A very funny, raunchy film about a guy trying to stay out of prison after getting his "3 Strikes."
10 March 2000 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

A hilarious movie, full of sexual themes and innuendo. The movie is centered around a community of African-Americans in LA, one of whom has been arrested for felonies twice, one away from a long jail term. Unfortunately, he gets picked up from jail by his "friend" in a stolen car. The strikes keep piling up! It's nothing that you wouldn't expect from a film of this kind. Just something to see on a Friday night.
