Sean James and PJ seem to have no problem acting like "gangstas" during the anti-crime PSA, which Gluckman's manager said was shot a month ago, yet somehow neither one of them remembers these mannerisms or characteristics one month later when asked to do basically the same thing. See more »

for real!!
29 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

OK. I have seen this movie I don't know how many times. I think it is one of the best movies. Yes, some people might say it's retarded. but you gotta laugh though. It's freaking great! My friend and I, basically have this whole movie memorized. If you are ever in a bad mood. Just watch this movie! Yes, some of the lines might be rather lame. but it is awesome! granted I may be repeating myself. but you just don't understand. I have only had the movie for a little over a year and I have probably seen it almost 100 times. but the thing is, there are actually people like this out there. ha ha. but it's great though. The whole trying to scare your son white. Is kinda messed up. but I think it's a great movie, myself. and so do my friends. So try to not dis this movie! For real!
