Why the hell did I just watch that?????
24 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm glad my DVD player decided 65% though the movie to stop playing the movie. Why did someone make this movie? It's hilarious when Mario Van Peebles drives up in his creepy child stealing van and says one word to a group of looters and they run like antelope. I think whoever wrote the script to this movie was high on drugs that nobody knows about because they don't exist anymore. This movie was made on a computer running windows 95. It doesn't really make sense, but when I saw that Jewish kid dancing and rapping, I felt violated and uncomfortable. I took the DVD out and returned it to the store. Rock on London, Rock on Chicago, Wheaties the breakfast of champion.
