Imagine a musical version of Do the Right Thing, only without the good characters, script, etc.
19 October 2004 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

This movie would be hysterical if it weren't so darned earnest. Preachy and

holier than thou to the max, Hammer seems to want to take a musical approach

to the "growing up in the ghetto" films so brilliantly parodied in the Wayans Bros. "Don't Be a Menace." One scene in particular features Hammer as the Revered

Pressure that lasts in a disjointed, clearly improvised (poorly) rant for close to 20 minutes. We see a Korean couple played off in very stereotypical fashion and an overly simplistic approach to cleaning up the streets. There is also more than one occasion where Hammer seems to leer at a little girl shaking her stuff that is just creepy and another scene where a small boy gets his brains blown out (off camera). I'm sure Hammer thought the latter would be poignant, but it elicits laughter in the audience. The songs can be found on the album Please Hammer Don't Hurt Em and they're not very well integrated into the plot. (If taken literally the first would have to be assumed to last for hours.) A conceited effort from one of popular music's least talented loudmouths.
