With the rent due and his car booted, Sean (Dr. Dre) has to come up with some ends...and fast. When his best buddy and roommate Dee Loc (Snoop Dogg), suggests that Sean get a job busting suds down at the local car wash, the first order of business is impressing Mr. Washington (George Wallace) the gun-toting, dominoes-playing owner of The Wash. Unaware that the two are roomies, Mr. Washington hires Sean as Dee Loc's supervisor. Comic tensions flare between the two, especially when Dee Loc suspects Sean of trying to slow his roll with the side hustles he's got going on in the car wash parking lot...and with the ladies in the locker room. But there are bigger things to worry about at The Wash. One is the menacing phone calls from a disgruntled employee, and the other is figuring out how to get money to pay off the kidnappers who've snatched Mr. Washington! If Sean, Dee Loc, and the rest of the gang don't settle their differences and get Mr. Washington back, the good times at The Wash ... Written by Anonymous

User Reviews

Hip Hop legends, they're better singers than actors.
19 August 2020 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Let's keep this simple, Dr.Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem and others are better singers than actors. That said it was funny watching them and I guess they had a lot of fun watching it themselves whilst smoking some weed. They're Hip Hop legends, swimming in money, and probably thought it would be fun to make a movie. I can't blame them but realisticly the movie oozes amateurism. But if you are a West Coast Hip Hop fan you will have some fun listening and watching them even if the story isn't really worth the detour. The comedy is just them talking like they record songs, that's always funny. The ratings are about right for this movie, I didn't regret watching it but I won't watch it again.
