The greatest thing I ever saw as an 8th grader
28 March 2006 | by (SOCAL) – See all my reviews

My friends and I saw this on HBO in our hotel room during a school field trip in 8th grade (summer 1998). Naturally it was the only thing we talked about for the rest of the trip. And one of our teachers saw it too, so we would make references to it and he would start laughing, which was great.

I can't rate this film accurately due to having seen it so long ago, but I'll give it a 5 since Bishop Don is hilarious, and you get to see a stripper grab a dollar bill with her snatch. From a moral standpoint, the movie is pretty demeaning to women since they are treated as property and employees. So if you can get past that, I think the pimp status attitude of the pimps is fairly entertaining.
