The Trap is Right in Several Ways
12 May 2019 | by tesswyskoSee all my reviews

While not short on humor, lessons, nor family love, like most Black American comedies, this movie had too many points where the plot was frustrating, and felt like a dead end. Up front, this is a comedy about 2 brothers, one who left home, worked HARD, and made a BIG name for himself too the point he was offered his OWN HIGH - END restaurant out in LA, the other was left the honor of running the family's multi - generational chicken store, but he's more interested in running weed. When older brother comes to town on vacation to see the family before going to LA, He goes to the diner 1st, to find his brothers chicken head, ratchet, gf talking on the phone, going between ignoring and insulting customers, telling them there's no chicken and to go to the competition! He apologizes to the customer, takes the ratchet girls phone, and they fight until his brother comes in, and they discuss how his brothers been running it into the ground. The next day, Big bro steps in to get the crew into shape, then Mama passes out and they find out she has extreme beast cancer... so little brother goes to his supplier, and increases his take by probably 500% trying to raise money. I won't say more, because I don't want to add spoilers, but this IS A movie revolves around weed. Normally I love weed movies, I'm a HUGE C&C fan, Snoop Dog, Friday, you name it, but this movie was just poorly written, and while all the characters were "happy" in the end, honestly I hatred the ending, I don't think some people got three happiness they deserved, and won't ever be truly happy! So I'm not going into the pros and cons of this one, I don't have the heart.
