A light hearted comedy delivered by a big hearted cast!
This movie has it all. Thrills, spills, chills and even grills. Yes, grills. The ghetto BBQ scene is one that will go down in film making history as one of the most memorable moments in breaking the color barrier. James Brooks made his directorial presence felt with an all-to-real look at the seedy underbelly of todays youth while still managing to keep the spirit of this film fresh, cutting edge and strictly ghetto. Mark Swanson's jump from the small screen to the big picture proved to be just as entertaining as his earlier role in the short lived summer camp series Salute your Shorts. As he did two years earlier in the fourth installment of the 3 Ninjas quadology, Swanson once again proves why he's the hottest young actor in Hollywood. Jim Brooks simply shows why he's the hottest man on earth. There's nothing funny about the racial tension our kids face in this world today, but when seen through the camera lens that James Brooks used, it doesn't seem quite so bad.
