Product Description

Product Description

Spoof comedy which pokes fun at the gritty 'reality check' films of the 1990s, such as 'Boyz N The Hood', 'Menace II Society' and 'New Jack City'. When Ashtray (Shawn Wayans) moves to South Central L.A. to live with his father (who appears to be the same age he is) and grandmother (who likes to talk tough and smoke reefer), he falls in with his gang-banging cousin Loc Dog (Marlon Wayans), who along with the requisite pistols and Uzi carries a thermo-nuclear warhead for self-defence. Will Ashtray keep living the straight life or will he join up with Loc Dog's gangsta homeboys? And is his romance with self-styled poet Dashiki (Tracey Cherelle Jones) going to go anywhere?

This is a highly understated comedy film. It has to be one of the funniest comedies I have seen, taking a humorous view of life in the 'hood' it is a spoof of the dramas such as 'Boys in the hood' and you may find it to be similar to the 'Friday' series starring Ice Cube (but funnier!). The famously funny Wayans brothers star in this film as Ash Tray and Loc Dog, both trying to work their way out of the hood. But whilst doing this they come across many extraordinary characters, 'Toothpick' a hardened regular jail goer (who is confused about his sexuality), Grandma who rides in LoLo's, breakdances and fights with Ash Tray, and also a women with seven kids. Overall a very silly film, which is very funny, but funnier if you have seen the films it is making a spoof of.

I enjoyed a lot of this - as with most Wayans films there are moments that make you really laugh out loud. But it's all just a bit too haevy on spoof in a surface kind of way, not unlike a Leslie Nielsen film or something. The observation is great - especially in the opening scenes with the falling leaves that could be from an Ernest Dickerson/Spike Lee film or indeed a John Edgar Wideman short story.

Marlon Wayans excels as Loc Dog - a classic character and played with an abundance of physical comedy, the kind that is hilarious when it's done right - Marx Brothers rather than Lee Evans.

Maybe it's because this film a spoof and has to focus quite strongly on the characteristics of other films, but for some reason the Wayans don't quite crank up the insanity levels to 11 here. If Little Man had me laughing so much that I was hurting, this one only produced a few belly laughs. Still, more than most. More than you'd get from most comedies anyway.

Once you`ve remembered the title and managed to buy it, you won`t regret - brilliant spoof on all the Hood movies you can think of - who said wheelchairs can`t have alloys ?

Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood is probably the longest film title ever, and this is what fascinated me about it. I didn't know it was a hood parody until I watched it, and I'm glad I did.

If you like films like Menace II Society, Friday, How High etc, you're going to love this. It basically takes the mickey out of them. Two friends living in the ghetto of South Central LA are just trying to survive. Of course one of them wants to be clever and get out, with the other one, with a crazy haircut (Kid N Play anyone?) just wants to get his drink on amongst other things.

This is good natured fun, taking the seriousness out of those films which are some times very dark. It's like Scream for the hood generation, with plenty of rap music from Wu Tang and some R&B from R Kelly. Both brothers Marlon and Shawn are really funny, and I like the way they're taking a light hearted look at the way cinema likes to portray people living in places like Compton and South Central LA.

This Blu is not bad, running at a steady 20MBit/s AVC with a 4Mbit/s 5.1 Dolby soundtrack. The colours are good and bright - as a lot of this is filmed outdoors. I really didn't see much need for this upscaling of Don't Be A Menace, as it's mainly a cult film, but it is worth a look. There's an extra with the director who talks about writing the film and working with the Wayans', but really it wasn't exciting and I could have done without it. There's also a deleted scene. Again, the work on the film from Studio Canal is great, but really this wasn't really needing a BD release.

Only for cult fans really, worth a watch if you've never seen it, but DVD will suffice.

Film itself I have sen before, it is not laugh out loud comedy but does raise some smiles. Easy watchable film. (White Chicks is much better, thanks to Terri Cruz)

However the DVD itself is jumpy and freezes in parts, not providing the greatest viewing experience (note: I have no issues with any other DVDs in my fairly large collection). As it was only a cheap film and impluse purchase, not making further effort to return the DVD.

yeh its full of cliches and the jokes are so predictable but it still will have you creasing cos it is one of those films that will make you laugh non-stop. if you liked boyz in da hood etc then you definately will appreciate this film...i had my doubts but its stupidly funny and great for when you dont wana have to use your brain to follow a story line cos the story is a rip off and a fantastic one i couldnt control myself how much it made me laugh. i love the wayans brothers and they even get a dig at their own mama in the script. i dont care what the other review up there says about it being a turkey or whatever its damn funny and i know that theres a lot of people ut there who think the same and if you havent seen it i can guarantee it will make you laugh big time.
