"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

Early in the film, Shawn Wayans's character states that his father is only a few years older than him. While poking fun at the cliches in Hollywood movies about African-Americans, this is also making fun of the fact that Cuba Gooding Jr. is only 7 years younger than Laurence Fishburne, who played father and son in Boyz n the Hood (1991). Lahmard J. Tate, who plays Ashtray's father, is less than two years older than Wayans. See more »
In the scene where Ashtray is getting a haircut from his dad, in one frame he's wearing a barber cape in the next one he's not wearing one, then right before the scene is over he's wearing it again. See more »

This movie is wonderful. It points out all of the absurdities of the earlier 'hood movies. You need to have seen most of the movies being parodied in order to see the true depth of the humor in this movie.
Absolutely one of my favorite light comedies with "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" and "Half Baked". I can't put it in a category with "Airplane" because that is the standard by which all other parodies are measured.
