The wit and wisdom of Tasty Taste
1 November 2003 | by SmoothpantsSee all my reviews

C'mon...how can you be against a rap-mockumentary that features the line:

"I want to make you mine, slap yo fat behind, tie you down and make you whine. I want you to scratch my itch and be my b***h....cause I luv you girl."

One of the most consistently funny movies I've ever seen.
