White kids gone black
30 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Another attempt at showing white kids going from the whitest kids to big rappers. To become what they really aspire, they have to make $10,000 to get stereo time for a demo tape. So what they decide to starts with petty stealing. Then it leads to bigger crimes; robbing a liquor store. But not all goes well. Or does it? The story line is really predictable, but thats what makes it funny. Its as though you know the ending, but the mission there is going to be one amazing ride. It is really hard for me to imagine that this story in any context can happen in real life. And the movie is what it aspires to be. The actors played the script as well as they could with their skills and their budget. Nothing special. All in all, it is a movie that won't shock you at anything amazing, or one you will ever remember for being amazing at anything.
