Inaccuracies Galore!
12 November 2002 | by akakasaxSee all my reviews

I've followed M.C. Hammer's career from start to finish.The film was totally inaccurate.We all know that Hammer started with only 4 back up dancers(Oaktown 357 & Ace Juice)if I'm not mistaken and of course 2 Bigg M.C. How could they leave them out.That killed the entire movie for me.
