Pootie Tang is the Sh*T
13 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For those of you that don't get it, leave it alone. This is about fantasy, fun and escapism. Its meant to take you away from reality and make you laugh and it does just that. The acting was not meant to win awards or come close. It is supposed to be fun.

I love it! Don't hate cause you don't have it going on like Pootie Tang (LOL). All these men wish they could whip another man's butt with their belts and have all the women slobbering all over them without even having to speak!

Biggie Shortie is doing it! I think it was very creative. Its easy to do something that everyone else is trying to do. This and Half-Baked are classics
