Storyline

With the rent due and his car booted, Sean (Dr. Dre) has to come up with some ends...and fast. When his best buddy and roommate Dee Loc (Snoop Dogg), suggests that Sean get a job busting suds down at the local car wash, the first order of business is impressing Mr. Washington (George Wallace) the gun-toting, dominoes-playing owner of The Wash. Unaware that the two are roomies, Mr. Washington hires Sean as Dee Loc's supervisor. Comic tensions flare between the two, especially when Dee Loc suspects Sean of trying to slow his roll with the side hustles he's got going on in the car wash parking lot...and with the ladies in the locker room. But there are bigger things to worry about at The Wash. One is the menacing phone calls from a disgruntled employee, and the other is figuring out how to get money to pay off the kidnappers who've snatched Mr. Washington! If Sean, Dee Loc, and the rest of the gang don't settle their differences and get Mr. Washington back, the good times at The Wash ... Written by Anonymous

All soap and suds?
18 November 2001 | by (Mass, USA) – See all my reviews

I must admit, I was quite excited about the idea of DRE and SNOOP starring together in a full length movie. They work so well with each other. The short flick they made as an opener to the UP IN SMOKE Concert Tour last year was a riot! It had hot chicks, good laughs, and style. It's too bad they didn't do something more like that for their first feature length film together. The Problem with THE WASH is in the writing. DRE and SNOOP deserved a much better storyline. The plot of THE WASH was just too goofy!! And it ends so abruptly (after going through a whole silly story) that the end is no payoff. Actually when the credits start to roll, they show DRE'S smooth video for BAD INTENTIONS, so that made up for the quick ending. In watching BAD INTENTIONS, it made me wonder why they didn't elaborate on that idea for a DRE and SNOOP movie, where the duo end up at a fancy whorehouse and encounter endless crazy mishaps. It could be like a wacky PORKY'S for the new millenium with the kings of rap and their smooth antics leading the way. SO if anyone over at AFTERMATH is reading this, let's write it! DRE and SNOOP are both talented writers (which shows in their creative rhymes), They should perhaps co-write the next movie they star in. DRE and SNOOP are both on good game with their acting in THE WASH. It's just too bad that the material they had to work with wasn't strong enough. TOMMY CHONG also makes a hillarious cameo in the film...If you have heard DRE'S hot CHRONIC 2001 CD, you'll recall CHONG did a hillarious skit at the end of the disc...Well his Cameo in the flick is just as funny!!

THE WASH is worth checking out of you are a fan of DRE and SNOOP, like me, But for the rest, the silly plot may make the movie a WASHout. Atleast we got 3 new DRE tracks (2 together with Snoop) to give the movie some bounce. I look forward to the duo re-teaming for another film (and album of course)...BAD INTENTIONS: THE Movie All the way!!
