It's the night before Halloween and everyone in LA is trying to make time to finish their costumes for the biggest and brashest block party of the year. Fredrico, Dave, Evan, Harvey and Emme have all been waiting for this day to come for what seems like an eternity. Emme has the perfect solution, something edgy, something fresh, something dangerous, something which will defy all expectations, to dress up as gang bangers. But in order to achieve that authentic straight from the hood look, they have to go to the professionals. The five friends split up and Dave makes his way to East LA where he meets Romeo, a real life gangster who agrees to loan Dave his purple low rider in exchange for Dave's cherry red Porsche.

I saw the film when it played in theaters, I thought it was actually funny in a madcap screwball kind of way. Particularly, I found Alanna Ubach both charming and enchanting. Tim Meadows was great as well (much better than he was in The Cookout) and the film has a great supporting cast of faces you will recognize. I've read some of the comments on here and I think some of the other viewers didn't take the film for what it is: light fluff meant to entertain, not socially relevant. But that's my two cents. By the way, this is the first time in a long time where I've seen something that has Anna Nicole Smith in it where she's actually entertaining, and self deprecating, not irritating.
