A ministrel show for the 2010's
11 August 2015 | by (Edinbruhhh) – See all my reviews

This movie is about as racist as a ministrel blackface show and about as sexist as a... random rap video, I guess...

And 20 solid minutes of it are rappers lipsynching to their not very good 'let me on touch that booty booty booty, hoe' songs, I'm not sure what that genre is called but yeah I'm not a fan of that specific sub-genre of rap, IE which was popular for a couple years in the 2010's...

I was surprised when I saw at the credits that Nick Cannon directed and wrote it, I imagined he would be above stereotyping black people this way but I guess not...

It's not all bad, child star Bobb'e J Thompson from Role Models still has some likability factor about him as a teenager and it was nice to see Wilmer Valderama from That 70's Show and Efren Ramirez from Napoleon Dynamite in 2 different roles, albeit very stereotypical latino ese gangsters...

I was surprised that they didn't throw in a bunch of geeky white people since it was so thriving on stereotypes...

Anyway, the movie is dumb as dirt but somehow it managed to entertain slightly occasionally so yeah I'll slip it a 5, but I can perfectly understand if people hate it, and to be frank, most probably will
