Martin Lawrence Live: Runteldat Review


Weak
Early in Martin Lawrence Live: Runteldat, Lawrence goes on a brief tirade about his hatred for critics because they make a habit of judging things they know little about. After sitting through this sloppy, made-for-movie comedy special, it makes me wonder if Lawrence hates criticism so much that he refuses to evaluate his own work.

Runteldat operates in much the same fashion as Lawrence's You So Crazy, where he spends 90 minutes barking out offensive remarks punctuated with bookends of profanity. Some of the jokes garnered genuine belly laughter - in particular, the bits involving white parents' use of "time out" and references to the black stars of the COPS television show. Some jokes however, especially the drunken husband routine, drag on for what seemed to be an eternity -- even the "live" audience appears restless in some cutaway shots -- while other jokes are just stale regurgitations of many I've seen pass through my email inbox a multitude of times. Please Martin, we all know how similar babies are to old people.

Woo Review


Grim
It's about time the You Go Girl crowd got a movie to call its own besides Waiting to Exhale. Too bad it sucks eggs by virtue of being completely stupid and asinine, by virtually all counts. Woo is the inexplicable story of a girl inexplicably named Woo (Pinkett) who is set up on an inexplicable date with a loser (Davidson) and whom spend an inexplicable night together, inexplicably falling in love. Woo is big and brassy -- you know, like her name. "You go, Woo!" Or not. Woo is so boring and obnoxious you'll wish Woo went away. Fortunately, the extra-inexplicable moments like Parker playing "the chicken ho" are extra fun and make up for having to watch the rest of this dreck.
