One Of The Most Under-rated Films Of All Time!!!
9 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just to let the world know---if ya ain't seen Pootie Tang in it's full glory it's time to get your business in order!!! This movie is absolutely one of the funniest, most hilarious, idiotic masterpieces that I have had the opportunity to view. If ya like the kind of stuff ya can laugh at for no reason at all (except that it's funny) then you need to rent it, invite over your friends who are non-believers and do the doggone thing!!! A lot of my own friends here in the great city of Detroit have doubts about my precious Pootie but I am so going to erase all of their fears of letting loose-cause that's exactly what you do when you are all in like me. Chris Rock absolutely needs to do a sequel and I think it should be called,"POOTIE TANGING JR." Now how's that for devotion! Pootie--I love you and I always will!!

Somebody please tell Chris Rock that we NEED some mo' Pootie Tang in our lives!!!
