"No, baby, I'm not lying!"
19 September 2010 | by (Camden, NJ (The Forbidden Zone)) – See all my reviews

Mind-boggling unsold TV pilot written by Keenan Ivory Wayans. Isaac Hayes, Jim Brown and Bernie Casey return in the roles that made them hilarious-- and the insane thing is, this ISN'T a sequel to I'M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA! Even Kung Fu Joe (Steve James) returns, but for whatever reason, this story is not connected in any way with the earlier feature film. Too bad, I think that may be one of the things (along with the absence of Wayans in the role of Jack Spade) that hurt this thing's chances. Even Lennie & Willie return, but both are played by different actors-- in this case, the unfortunate Willie (who gets beaten up by Hayes just to prove a point) is played by Martin Lawrence. Also, Super Fly himself-- Ron O'Neal-- has a small role as Casey's ex-partner who's been framed for a jewel robbery, which sparks the whole plot.

In this universe, Jack Spade's a rookie cop, John Slade's an ex-cop, and Hammer & Slammer are retired private eyes. Wheras in the original film, Jack was an ex-army file clerk, and the other three were merely known as "crimefighters". Perhaps strangest of all is Janet Dubois, who switched from being Jack's mother and John's love, to Hammer's DOMINEERING OVERBEARING WIFE. It gets really pathetic to see Isaac Hayes repeatedly on the phone lying to his wife about his whereabouts, desperately trying to convince her "No, baby, I'm not lying!" and being told to pick up some groceries on the way home. The running joke is 3 old, over-the-hill, out-of-shape ex-heroes, who all need glasses to read-- or shoot straight.

Parts of this are funny-- just barely. I just really wish it had been a LOT better. Too "toned down" for TV. Like the TV version of SHAFT (but that was much worse than this).
