Storyline

Is this your Mother's love story? No. Not really. Perhaps it's a story of hope? Let's hope not. Is it a story about achieving the impossible? HELL NO! It's a quirky, off centered tale of a nomadic mother and her three metro-sexual street-hustling sons. Welcome to Oakland. Home of hard scowls, hard gangsta rap, and even harder times. Armed with their pretty hair, pretty smiles, and a Pretty last name, Jermaine, Jerome, and Tracy Pretty lure Oakland's most flamboyant thug, and defender of all things "hard", into a duel TO THE DEATH! Okay... maybe it's not to the death, but it's for ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS! And a thousand bucks buys a shit load of beauty products. And we all know how every Pretty Boy needs his beauty products...

Real life...real laughs.
27 April 2006 | by taaguirreSee all my reviews

Pretty Boy deals with real world issues in a funny and humorous way. They say that laughter is the world's best medicine and this short feature is full of it. Props to Mr. Reid...I'm not sure if I'm ready to take my RV into Oakland yet but I'll sure try double-dutch. If only we all could work through our problems in a similar fashion. The acting was off the top and even though we had just sat through a whole series of long and sometimes boring shorts at the San Francisco Film Festival this piece was fresh and got my blood pumping again. Hopefully someone will make a feature out of this...I'm tired of the same old Jim and Adam show. Maybe the Wayan brothers might be interested.
