Frankie and the hoop
7 October 2011 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

Two streetball hopefuls Motown (DeRay Davis) and Darius (Jasper Redd) have daytime jobs in the city morgue as assistants for wacky doctor Franklin (Charles Q. Murphy), an apparent victim of repeated viewing of Reanimator. After one of his crazed experiments he manages to awaken a corpse. Bigger than a rhino, but as clueless as the movies scriptwriter, he turns out to be a harmless and friendly undead. Given his immense posture and strength Motown and Darius decide to enlist him as their third player in an upcoming streetball tournament.

The premise itself calls for a derivative comedy at best, but unfortunately the movie suffers from a inability to generate any laughs. Characterized with little to no character development and fraught with 'Scary Movie' level jokes, it is also inhabited by two very unmemorable main actors. The movie attempts to transcend its inherent weaknesses by populating the movie with some pretty 'chicks' (Drew Sidora, Angell Conwell or the stripdancing Daphne Joy) in an effort to increase the attention span of the male audience. No such luck for the other half of the population.

Once again a movie which does no favours to 'black comedy'. Due to the amount of below the belt humour and high sexual content it is entertainment for a very unsophisticated crowd. The only redeeming quality I can find is Frankie played by Bob Sapp, who is extremely likable despite the absolutely appalling scripting behind his character.
