Storyline

On the day after Christmas, Emmy Towne brings her boyfriend, Darryl, home to meet her family. Having already struck out twice when introducing a new boyfriend to the rest of the Towne clan, Emmy is terrified of Darryl becoming casualty number three. For Emmy and Darryl's relationship to escape intact, Darryl will have to survive Emmy's know-it-all mother, Beverly, her clueless father, Martin, her deviant sister, Grace, and her miscreant brother, Rick. And then there's the tiny little matter of Darryl being black. Written by Francis Abbey

Awesomely Funny Comedy About Race

Emmy Towne (Bridget Devlin Burke) brings her new boyfriend Darryl (Demetrius Parker) home for Boxing Day (the day after Christmas). She forgot to warn them in advance, though: Daryl is black.

The plot of this film is good, but it's the jokes that make it fantastic. I found out about the racist scale (Hitler is 100, the KKK are 75, Don Imus is 20, not locking your doors in a black neighborhood because you think it's racist is 2). There are also great pop culture jokes: especially regarding Dawson's Creek, with a long spiel about the final episode, the lack of God, Joey's choices, and the failure of soulmates to connect.

I found out that a columnist is a journalist not bound by ethics, and that dating "Lenny Kravitz black" is wussy, but "Wesley Snipes black" is progressive.

I'm not really keen on how the philosophy major (Jenna St. John) is presented... somewhere between existentialist and hedonist, very amorphous. Very sexy outfit and makeup, though.

Oh, and the news report on Richard "Big Dick" Towne, the creator of powernesium and toilet paper thief, hilarious, "lot of gay sex, I started to enjoy it"...
