Damon Wayans Reckons Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Allegations Are A "Money Hustle"


Damon Wayans Bill Cosby

Damon Wayans has made a controversial intervention in the Bill Cosby scandal, coming out with a series of comments about the multiple allegations of sexual assault made against Cosby in the last year, dismissing them as a “money hustle”.

The 55 year old actor and stand-up comedian made the incendiary remarks during an interview with New York radio station Power 105.1’s ‘The Breakfast Club’ on Friday (September 4th). He began by saying that he didn’t believe that Cosby was a rapist, before claiming that “some of them, really, [are] un-rapeable”.

Furthermore, Wayans argued that the continued outrage against Cosby is mainly due to his race, citing the recent allegations against Stephen Collins and Woody Allen as evidence that white celebrities who are supposed to have committed the same offence and yet have not received similar backlashes.

Marci X Review


Terrible
Better than having your wisdom teeth removed, sans anesthesia, and worse than just about anything that doesn't involve actual physical violence being done to your person, Marci X is a supposed comedy that starts out merely unfunny and progresses into a truly shocking level of unctuous incompetence.

Spawned by the evil pen of Paul Rudnick, Marci X is about Marci (Lisa Kudrow), the rich daughter of a billionaire media tycoon who has to rescue the family empire from a boycott against rapper Dr. S (Damon Wayans, frighteningly unfunny), who's on a Death Row-esque record label owned by Marci's daddy. It all starts with Marci's dad getting a heart attack after receiving word of the boycott - led by Christine Baranski in yet another of her humorless harridan roles - and having to convalesce for a couple weeks. Marci then goes, with her three debutante friends, of course, to a Dr. S concert in order to plead with him to apologize for his profane lyrics, end the controversy, and end daddy's stress.

Bamboozled Review


Very Good
Welcome to a piece of American history. In the old music hall, white comedians and song 'n' dance men would splash their faces in charcoal, maybe throw on a pair of white gloves, then go through the step-n-fetchin' routine, the exotica and the buffoonery of perceived black culture. Jim Crow, Amos 'n' Andy, Mammy, L'il Black Sambo, Uncle Tom, and the Ten Pickaninnies were typical characters thrown on stage and screen for the amusement and mockery of white audiences.

What began as white actors in blackface evolved with the 1950s Amos and Andy Show on television, featuring black actors in blackface. The content remained the same, with Amos and Andy portrayed as lazy, ignorant, chicken eatin', banjo playin', shifty clowns. Once the show lost favor with an outraged public, the television studios put a halt on developing new shows about the black experience -- degrading or otherwise -- for several decades.

Bulletproof Review


Bad
Adam Sandler's foray into action-hero land was ill-advised and, mercifully, short-lived. Bulletproof was his sole attempt to enter the buddy-cop genre (though he's playing the criminal to Wayans' cop here, but that's beside the point), and thank God. A few trademark Sandler gags aside, Bulletproof is so riddled with holes it's ridiculous. The good news: it's 84 minutes long.

Celtic Pride Review


Weak
Not really all that funny, Celtic Pride has Daniel Stern, Dan Aykroyd, Damon Wayans, and a kidnapping. If those prospects sound funny, well, it really isn't. The jokes fall flat, and the performers all look bored. Thanks to a remarkably flat script (featuring overzealous Celtics fans who kidnap a rival player), this is one film that won't appeal to either sports or comedy fans.

Goosed Review


Weak
Goosed invites you to imagine Jennifer Tilly as the Jewish daughter of Joan Rivers and Roger Klein, walking you through her childhood, adolescence, college years, and adult life as a slut in search of a doctor named Steven, whom her psychic told her she'd marry. The sheer volume of B- and C-grade stars on parade is astonishing. (Director Aleta Chappelle was a casting director before this, which explains far too much to write about.) Despite a couple of mildly humorous gags, this movie is nothing short of a throwaway.

Bamboozled Review


OK

Beginning as a stinging, double-edged satire of stereotype exploitation, Spike Lee's racially charged "Bamboozled" slowly turns into a heavy-handed horsewhipping as it loses its sense of humor.

Intelligent, persuasive, scathing and certainly provocative, the picture is a pasting of upstart TV networks that pack their schedules with clownish urban sitcoms to build a woop-wooping, lowbrow fan base. With this film, Lee is asking just how far such degradation must go before it's recognized as being socially detrimental.

Damon Wayans (no stranger to blaxploitation TV) stars as Pierre Delacroix, an ostentatious, Harvard-educated "oreo" who writes for a WB-like network. Fed up with reprimands for writing "too white," he pitches a concept so offensive he hopes it will both prove a point and get him fired from this job he can no longer stomach.
