The raucous events leading up to and after the 'mutha' of all urban teen parties. Starring Kid 'n Play and Martin Lawrence. Directed by Reginald Hudlin.
It's party time, but Kid (Christopher Reid) has been grounded by his strict but loving dad (Robin Harris). His best friend, Play (Christopher Martin), however, cooks up a scheme to sneak him out of the house so he can hook up with his honey at a buddy's house, where it's all going on. Rappers Kid 'N Play are engaging and funny--and entertaining rappers when they get the chance. The real find was comic Robin Harris, hilarious in his own right and solid in this role but he died a short time later. Look for Martin Lawrence in one of his first film roles as well. --Marshall Fine
