Storyline

While delivering an award to her humanitarian father Ben Feld, the stylish wealthy Jewish Caucasian Marci Feld is surprised by the attack of the conservative senator Mary Ellen Spinkle to her father in the media. The motive is the lyrics of the rap "Shoot Ya' Teacha " sing by Dr. S and released by the hip-hop record label Felony Assault that belongs to Ben. He has a heart attack, and his daughter decides to assume the problem and negotiate a public excuse of Dr. S in the MTV Award. However, the bad boy sings a polemic song on television to humiliate Merci that gives senator Sprinkle the chance to promote the "Buttgate". Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The film was originally set to be released in the fall of 2001, but had they had to reshoot the last ten minutes due to September 11th. In a 2002 interview, actress Sherie Rene Scott explained that one of the jokes in the scene was a take off on the Hindenburg disaster, which the filmmakers felt was inappropriate after the recent attacks. Since Damon Wayans and Lisa Kudrow were in the scene, filming had to work around their TV schedules. See more »

User Reviews

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez should be grateful...
7 October 2003 | by jonorrheaSee all my reviews

...for one simple reason-they aren't responsible for the worst movie ever made anymore. Weak set-ups fizzle into non-humor and bland plot scenarios roll downhill slowly toward the expected conclusions. It's sort of like staring at traffic for 90 minutes-you tune out the cars and the noise and start thinking about being anywhere else.
