Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre star as Dee Loc and Sean, two co-habiting car wash employees who are struggling to make ends meet. Given three days to pay the rent, the lazy Dee and conscientious Sean begin to argue over how they should get the money. Meanwhile, the car wash manager Mr Washington (George Wallace) is kidnapped and held to ransom.
Amidst an L.A. landscape of drugs and guns, The Wash
is a comedic working class update of Car Wash
Written and directed by D.J. Pooh, the film is set to a pounding hip-hop soundtrack, and is populated with numerous rappers including Xhibit, Ludachris, and Eminem.
Mild-mannered Sean (Dr. Dre) is under financial stress, is getting no play from the opposite sex, and is without a car since his just broke down. Dee-Loc (Snoop Dog), his roommate, is a troublemaker who smokes and deals pot and works at a local car wash. Despite their vast differences, their friendship stands strong. Dee-Loc throws Sean a bone by getting him a middle-management job at the car wash. But Sean's easy adjustment to an authoritative position and his positive rapport with the boss, Mr. Washington (George Wallace), immediately puts a strain on his relationship with Dee-Loc. The old friends now find themselves at odds with each other both at home and at work. Personal conflicts are soon shoved aside when Mr. Washington is kidnapped by two moronic neighborhood pranksters. Sean and Dee-Loc unite with their co-workers at the wash to rescue their boss. (Eminem plays a psychopathic ex-employee who terrorizes Mr. Washington.)
