Plagiarism?
21 February 2006 | by OmayrSee all my reviews

Has anyone else noticed the immense similarity of this films content and that of Bamboozled? A black producer is given the privilege to start their own sit-com but ends up playing to racial stereotypes? Both Films were released round about the same time so its unclear which drew influence from which though I think its more likely Spike Lee would be the one being Plagiarised here. Other than that I thought it was a great movie. I loved the character of James (or Semaj as he prefers to be called as "its just James backwards but its got more flavour"). The lead (who doesn't give a damn about Semaj's "name or flavour) was also very sympathetic.
