Storyline

Duncan is a genius straight A student, Blade is juvenile delinquent. But because of a mix up with their school records, everyone thinks each is the other one. Now, Duncan kind of likes the attention from being thought of as a real bad dude, if only the school bully would stop trying to rough him up. And Blade definitely likes being thought of as important instead of as trouble, if only the teacher would stop hitting on him for a date. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

Classic hip hop flava comedy thats totally original and full of laughs
1 November 2014 | by dann-b-eSee all my reviews

This gets 10 for its original comedy & hip hop influenced style which makes the genre much more fun and appealing to all without the Gangster SH@T you find in so many other hip hop related movies. Full of classic tunes and one liners this is a hidden gem amongst 90s movies. Boys n the hood was my other best hip hop style movie from the 90s but this is much less serious. Gotta love kid n play & the work thats gone into this whole movie its a must see. As i have to write 10 lines im going to add that Kid n play also made a few albums & made a few great records too like Getting funky & My way. If you like kid n play also consider movies like keenan and kels & the show fresh prince of bel air. thanks for reading and enjoy the movie!
