An actor limited to stereotypical roles because of his ethnicity, dreams of making it big as a highly respected performer. As he makes his rounds, the film takes a satiric look at African American actors in Hollywood.

I'm Gonna Git You Sucka is an undeniable Cult Classic for black people or people who love blaxploitatation movies of the 1970's. If you laughed zero times at this movie, this means you don't get it and probably shouldn't be watching Im Gonna Get You Sucka. For a person that knows blaxploitation films it's easily spoofable. Blaxploitation films are hilarious by nature. Low budget, bad acting, and a bunch of people who think they know martial arts. If you're not a person that has watched your grandpa, grandma, mother, and father watch hours upon hours of blaxploitation films of course it would appear hard to spoof. Blaxploitation is far more than just Pam Grier and Richard Roundtree. Bernie Casey, Jim Brown, and Isacc Hayes have been in more blaxploitation films than you could shake a stick at. they lend their knowledge to the cast of characters and puts the true flavor of blaxploitation films on the screen for you to see.
This movie does an excellent job of capturing the essence of what made blaxploitation films funny and uses it to I'm Gonna Git You Sucka's advantage. Comedic timing and popular characters inhabit this movie from beginning to end. If this movie isn't funny then you don't know funny. You especially don't know black urban humor funny. Some try to liken this movie to Airplane. It isn't Airplane it's a totally different type of humor. It's Im Gonna Git You Sucka.....Sucka!!
