In a virtually all-white Iowa town, Flip daydreams of being a hip-hop star, hanging with Snoop Doggy Dogg and Dr. Dre. He practices in front of a mirror and with his two pals, James and Trevor. He talks Black slang, he dresses Black. He's also a wannabe pusher, selling flour as cocaine. And while he talks about "keeping it real," he hardly notices real life around him: his father's been laid off, his mother uses Food Stamps, his girlfriend is pregnant, James may be psychotic, one of his friends (one of the town's few Black kids) is preparing for college, and, on a trip to Chicago to try to buy drugs, the cops shoot real bullets. What will it take for Flip to get real?Written by
I think the movie portrays what is wrong w/ youth these days. Its funny, because im in my mid 20s now and could relate to Flips feelings. Basically, the movie is about an Iowa white kid who thinks he's a gang banger. He goes to Chicago and finds out that things are different. I wish more of the movie would have been based in Chicago rather than in Iowa. It would have been a little better. Overall, I think its a interesting movie. Nothing too special, but I didnt fall asleep. In conclusion, If Piper Perabo reads this, please email me! :)
