Not Another Teen Movie Review


Terrible
Fitting spoofs of at least 16 teen movies into one questionable parody film is like trying to fit ten pounds of sausage into a five pound bag. You just end up with a groan-inducing mess.

Don't Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood Review


Terrible
Before they found an audience with Scary Movie, the Wayans clan tried their hand at parody, and the result is even worse. Don't Be a Menace... aims to spoof "urban/gangsta/growing up in the hood" films, a genre which (like Scream), has already become a parody of itself. There are zero laughs in this stupid, stupid movie -- unless "homies drinkin' 40s" with their pants a-fallin' strikes you as a particularly insightful parody.
