Story of a promising high school basketball star and his relationships with two brothers, one a drug dealer and the other a former basketball star fallen on hard times and now employed as a security guard.
"Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking your Juice in the Hood" is a parody of several U.S. films about being in the 'Hood', for instance "Boyz n the Hood", "South Central", "Menace II Society", "Higher Learning" and "Juice". We follow Ashtray as he returns to the place he grew up in and meet his father and his basket-case friends. Crazy stuff happens. For example, Ashtray is older than his father and his best friend Loc Dog's grandmother is a trigger-happy old lady who blames her eccentric-looking kid for not being tough enough.Written by

When Ashtray and Loc Dog are being thrown against the police car, a white Ford Bronco can be seen in the background with bloody hand-prints on the side. This is a reference to OJ Simpson in the infamous Bronco chase and subsequent trial. See more »
When Ashtray first goes to his father's house, he greets him with a chocolate bar that is open. When they go inside, it is in the wrapper again. See more »
If you hit a man, in time his wounds will heal. If you steal from a man, you can replace what you've stolen. But always cross in the green, never in between. Because the honorable Elijah Muhammad Ali floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee. And always remember my brother, one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish, knick knack, paddy whack, give a dog a bone, two thousand, zero, zero, party, oops! Out of time, my bacon smellin' fine.

The Unrated version contains the following alternate scenes: Loc Dog's chat with the thug chick at the barbecue is extended; After Ashtray is released from jail Loc Dog, Preach and Crazy Legs play a game of Po'Nopoly; Loc Dog's dream is shown at the Old School scene; During Toothpick's drive by, instead of Ashtray running away he tries to save Dashiki, making more sense why he is suddenly lying on the ground; When grandma is said to have the "juice", she chops the guy's head off and puts it in her purse, referring to 'Dead Presidents'.

Spoofing practically every "growing up in the hood" movie, "Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood" is a laugh a minute. Following the adventures of Ashtray (Shawn Wayans) and Loc Dog (Marlon Wayans) in LA's black ghetto, it's one joke after another - the way that a Mel Brooks or Leslie Nielsen movie is. Probably the funniest scene is when they enter a convenience store. The owner, convinced that African-Americans would only enter his store to steal things, follows them around - while a rich white man comes in and proceeds to empty the place. Containing virtually every imaginable use of the N-word, "DBAMTSCWDYJITH" is pure hilarity. Those Wayans brothers have it down.
