Raunchy but often extremely funny!
23 April 2001 | by mattymatt4everSee all my reviews

Come on, when you're planning on seeing a movie entitled "Booty Call" you're obviously not anticipating a Disney comedy. This film delivers just as much raunch as its title suggests. The comedy is sometimes overdone and sometimes plagued by lame sitcom material, but I still got tons of laughs. Jamie Foxx is a terrific comic actor, and he delivers many funny--and memorable--one-liners. Even when the story runs flat, he livens it up with his quirky sense of humor. There's also a good cameo by multi-talented comedian Bernie Mac, who has some of the funniest cameo roles in movie history. I enjoyed the two Middle Eastern guys who worked at the convenience store. Sure, they were stereotyped caricatures of what a foreigner at a corner store or 7 Eleven would act like, but they were still extremely funny. This film has a chock full of outrageous, yet original moments. The argument in the Chinese restaurant is a classic! If you're looking for good, clean fun--"Booty Call" is NOT the movie to see! But if you're looking for big laughs, no matter how raunchy and profane, you will have a blast! Don't leave this call on hold!

My score: 7 (out of 10)
