A generally worthless film that provides a few good belly laughs
9 February 2000 | by finnadat-2See all my reviews

A generally worthless film that provides a few good belly laughs at the individuals in da pimp game. You will sincerely wonder if these people are real and will be astounded that they exist in this day in age. If you are looking for a detailed character analysis of why the pimp/ho dynamic continues to be played out – try another video; but if you want black-exploitation with a refined and very gold mid 90'z flavor – pick it up. Yep, Yep..
