After his uncle's abrupt demise, JoJo struggles as he takes over the escort business left behind, dealing with aggressive competitors and the police.
19 October 2010 | by krensieSee all my reviews

After his uncle's abrupt demise, JoJo struggles as he takes over the escort business left behind, dealing with aggressive competitors and the police. This movie is about taking over the uncle's pimp business, when he dies. He has to recruit new girls. And keep the family business alive. I thought reading the summary that this movie would be funny as hell, boy was I wrong. It is not funny and very bad. The movie doesn't seem to get going. It's got some stereo type black elements in it but not at all funny. Only funny thing was the Denzel Training Day bit. And the Chinese taking the dog every time to put in the food. The ending is poor also. Wouldn't spend my money on it.
