IMDB link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0258038/

Starring: All of Louis C.K. and Chris Rock’s friends. And Robert Vaughn is the villain.

Review in a nutshell: I seriously have no idea how to explain this one. It’s a comedy. It’s intended to be a comedy. Comedians got together and made it, and I do laugh at parts of it. BUT just because it’s funny ON PURPOSE does not make this a good movie. Parts of it are just painful. That doesn’t stop my husband from howling with laughter while I cringe and shake my head. There is nothing intellectual about this script. You might make an argument that they were trying to make a statement about race relations and capitalism in the US. If you do I will smack the crap out of you. (My husband has informed me I don’t have any idea what I’m talking about. We’re agreeing to disagree on this one.)

Where I found it: HBO

How much I paid for it: zilch

Points of interest: Louis C.K. (a white guy) wrote and directed this. I had always assumed Chris Rock (a black guy) did, but IMDB says I was wrong. This is what I get for practicing racial profiling.

The Money Shot: David Cross in black face.
