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.

Martin Lawrence did not return in this film because at the time, he was starring in his own sitcom "Martin" along with Tisha Campbell who plays Sydney (who appears in this film in a cameo role). See more »

Boy, I miss your father.

I don't really care how bad people assume this film is, to me it is somewhat of a classic.
Bernie Mac steals the show from his opening scene as the dubious uncle Vester. Always about ten seconds away from losing his temper and revealing his true psychopathic side. This alone brings me and a fair few others close to tears.
Add to this Showboat and the cast of ex-con catering and defy virtually anyone not to need picking up from the floor. Hysterics are guaranteed.
Not big, not clever and certainly not in any top 100 lists, but a film that gets better each time I see it.
