Full of xenophobic and racist remarks apparently to be a comic parody.
7 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Meet the Blacks" is a horror comedy that spoofs the "Purge" movies. A wealthy African-American family moves into an upscale neighborhood in Beverly Hills and instantly are subjected to racial discrimination. The director lampoons this concept and has the purgers be people the protagonist owes money to. Though I found the film sporadically funny, I thought it wasn't really trying at all and instead tried to see how hard it could spoof "Scary Movie." The humor is scatological and is embedded in puerile, inane humor that is so dumb and pointless it actually becomes somewhat funny. The script is laughable at best and features some of the cheesiest lines I've seen. It does everything that a horror comedy is supposed to do except have believable acting, realistic humor, and a halfway decent plot.
