Trivia

According to Dave Chappelle on The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986), a scene was written during filming in which his character was to wear a dress while disguised as a prostitute. Chappelle adamantly refused. The writers complained to the producers who then tried to convince Chappelle to do the scene, but he still refused. According to Chappelle, he felt that it was part of a disturbing trend in which African-American men wear dresses in films. See more »

Mar-In Streakin' Lawrence
11 July 2009 | by buzznzipp1995See all my reviews

Generally speaking, I'm not a Lawrence Fan, and was not that familiar with him or his show. At this time when this came to town I went because of the pre-views and thought it couldn't be that bad, right? In actuality, it was a lot of fun!! Martin was a great character that played the their turned sueto cop. This was a pleasure for me to watch. There are so many different things to choose from that it makes the competition tough. I'm thinking to myself, wow, I'm checking out Martin in the middle of everything else, so this must be strong enough. I was right. His dilemma after robbery, stealing expensive diamonds and then getting chased by the fuzz, makes things a little more complicated than he could handle. So, presto-stash-O. The diamond is stowed away, in a building that is going up. Good idea and 'quick' thinking for him. Although he gets busted anyway for breaking into the jewelry store. He does two years in the pen. He gets set free. Now he is feeling fine! He goes back to check out his girl and she has gone from a size petite, to Esther Role. This does not sit well with her either when he lets her know about the obvious change in girth. The rock of Gibraltar diamond that he stole, in his hiding place is not quite what he remembers it to be. He is a con that is free, standing in front of the new police building, where his little stolen article is awaiting his return. Now, complications play out bigger. He has what looks like a torette's syndrome break-down in front of the building and some officers out on break, while cars pass by and on lookers see him, freaking. He has to come up with a plan to get this job done. And considering where this is all taking place, it had better be brilliant. I won't give away what happens next, but this is a slick well crafted comedy with the likes of Luke Wilson and William Forsythe who has been in a number of outstanding films, both comedy and action and dramatic roles. There is always a bunch of stuff going on and it is a lot of crazy-half planned out funky Martin on the loose fun. He can't speak Spanish very well either, but that really won't hurt him in the end by the way.

This is a Martin Lawrence casted good piece of now classic entertainment, that I can say, "Yes I recommend it." See it if you haven't. It isn't going to win an Oscar, but it will be worth the time to watch. (***)
