Pras doesn't add anything to the movie
14 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Would of been a lot better if they just spent time filming and interview the homeless people of skid row. Pras' attempt at living 9 days in skid row is more of a joke then anything. He spends most of the time in a underground parking lot with this film crew. I mean they start the guy off with 9 bucks. He refuses to eat the food given at a soup kitchen. Then pan handles for a little builds up like 15 bucks and then goes and eats in a diner and spends it all. Does that seem like someone who is worried about surviving 9 days on the streets of skid row with no help?!? Hes pretentious and so far disconnected from regular people its ridiculous. The man asks a couple of mexicans working at a fruit store if he can move like 15 boxes for them for 2 dollars. The man responds by saying where only getting paid like 2 dollars. Prolly even less then that for the 5 minutes of work it would of taken to move the boxes. By watching the movie its obvious he had plenty of help from his crew while living on the street for the 9 days. Regardless the people he meets along the way and the footage of skid row is pretty good, and makes the movie decent.
