Product Description

Pressurised by the network bosses, black television writer Pierre Delacroix (Damon Wayans) is forced into writing a racist comedy show. At first clueless about how to approach the project, he eventually, with the help of his young assistant Sloan (Jada Pinkett), manages to come up with the most racist and obscene show imaginable: 'Mantan - The New Millennium Minstrel Show'. However, Delacroix is unprepared for what follows; the show, featuring a blackface hero called Mantan (Savion Glover) and his sidekick Sleep 'n' Eat, becomes the most popular thing on television.

From Amazon.co.uk

Bamboozled is that rarity in Hollywood cinema, a sharp but subtle satire by Spike Lee, America's most important black director. A TV producer trying to expose the racism of his corporation conceives an idea for a new show. It's back to the Black and White Minstrels, reincarnated in glorious colour. He can't believe it when his ironic suggestion is taken up by the company and becomes a huge hit. Lee manages to show us just what's wrong with stereotypes of blacks, and yet acknowledge just how easily even black people themselves can be seduced by them. It's a pity about the ending, which explodes in a hail of bullets, quite inappropriately for such a film, but up till then there are plenty of laughs and much food for thought.

On the DVD: the many extras include Lee's informative audio commentary on the film and a 50-minute "making of" documentary, plus 10 scenes deleted from the final version, some posters, a couple of music videos and the theatrical trailer. --Ed Buscombe

I studied this movie as part of my American Studies degree and found it very interesting as a film even though the content is very disturbing. For anyone looking at race relations or the media's representation of race, this is a must-see although be warned its not the kind of thing you would want to see on a Friday night in. Well worth a look and another very well made Spike Lee film.

This is Spike Lee's Finest movie to date.
He takes a subject that is painful and makes it easy to watch and understand. Damon Wayans gives a first rate performance. Jada Pinkett-Smith is as you have never seen her before. The DVD is pack with great features Commentary by Spike Lee where he speaks straight from the Heart. I really enjoyed the Music Video's(Mau Mau's Blak iz Blak) This is one Spike Lee Joint that deliver's the goods

I have watched Spike Lee movies before and I have not always understood his style. However I intend to urge as many people as I can to watch this movie. Is by no means a perfect film I would take issue with the ending. However it is a thought provoking movies and one of the best bt Mr Lee that I have watched. I have watched it several times and I intend to watch it again. Jada Pinkettt Smith was superb in the movie I have never seen her perform so well and she handled a difficult script superbly. It does make uncomfortable viewing but it is well worth seeing. Mos Def also put in an outstanding performance as Big Black Africa!! An unmissable movie...

After a boring evening, a couple of friends and I picked up the movie in a shop and took it back to watch. My first impressions were that it was dull. But then I really got into the plot. Like The Shawshank Redemption, what makes this film great is not the money it could have made at the box office, NO! It's that other people have said it's good aswell. A very sad ending.

Spike Lee on the tin so it`s not going to be crap. Certainly gets tongues wagging as they are many layers to the story.
