Entertaining and cringe inducing in about equal measures
1 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's funny isn't it......sometimes you can watch a film from the relatively recent past yet it will look far more dated than something from the 70's and 80's(!) Such is the case with this often embarrassing effort which springs forth from a time when we were gyrating our hips in a bizarre manner to the tunes of MC Hammer and Vanilla Ice.

The story concerns a well muscled dude called Ray who along with his friends seems to communicate via a curious system of (cringe inducing) rapping. Our trio are 'dawgs' though - a colloquialism ostensibly denoting their proclivity for decidedly promiscuous sexual conduct with members of the fairer sex. Anyway, after a few on screen conquests it transpires that Ray actually falls head over heels in love with one lady; Awwww - well who can scoff at such true romance eh? Unfortunately however, said sexy lass has a deranged ex who just won't let her go. Trouble inevitably ensues and Ray is forced to fight for his woman......which he does in style.

I've got to say it, the guy playing Ray, Stan Derain (although here listed as MC Kung Fu) has some pretty slick moves for sure and gets to show them off quite regularly as he beats the crap out of various scum bags throughout proceedings. Will Ray manage to overcome the odds, keep his woman and succeed in being a good father to his unborn child? Will he call a welcome cessation to his interminable rapping antics? You'll just have to watch and see. Other than that, for such an obviously low budget, I feel that the makers are to be applauded for their obvious hard work; OK so this is no masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination but it is never anything less than entertaining throughout, whether it be the many fights our hero gets into, his unlikely sexual shenanigans which play out almost as hilariously as the on screen antics featured in many of the old 1970's British sex comedies or else the somewhat misplaced attempts at serious drama, this is certainly never dull.

For a slice of nineties nostalgia (with some added sex and martial arts) check this out.
