Finally an Anti-PC movie!
6 February 2010 | by Don MuvoSee all my reviews

If you understand the silliness in political correctness, thus are a hip person, this is not a bad movie from that perspective. It's nice to see Robert Hayes in his role of a slightly perverted Ob/Gyn (slightly, is that even possible?) Then there's D.C. Douglas as the slightly-straight narrator.

If you're even a little bit anti-PC, there's a chance that you might understand this movie. It has gay bits, negro bits, lots of white, etc. I mean where are you going to see all this in only one movie?

My favorite scene is the quiz show, when the object of answering the question is not to get bitch-slapped. The questions all require a fair knowledge of racial stereotyping to be answered correctly, so the white liberal contestant only takes a couple of rounds to understand what part of her mind she has to reference to get the correct answers and thus beat her, at first, more street-smart opponent - hilarious!

There are drawbacks, like the limited acting of Charles Q. Murphy, nevertheless this pastiche from the hand of the director of Deliver Us from Eva, is a must-see for the PC-challenged.
