Generally a very good film!
27 May 2000 | by ssslawmanSee all my reviews

I thought "Pimps" was very colorful and fairly insightful. Some may find it easy to dismiss because of the seamy subject matter. However, this seaminess aside, the film was very good. Although the viewer isn't given a full biography of each pimp, we are given insights into their backgrounds and motivations and "professional" challenges (e.g. Mr. White Folk's race and Big Lexx's gender). Although "Pimps" may be a bit lowbrow for the Friends/Frasier/Will & Grace crowd, it is very insightful and entertaining.
