Black Dynamite Review


Very Good
This outrageously wacky blaxploitation pastiche keeps us laughing nonstop for its first hour, simply because it plays everything dead straight. After this point, it may still be sharply funny, but the thrill is gone.

Muscled ladies' man Black Dynamite (White) is a legend in 1970s drug-ridden Los Angeles. When his brother is murdered in a drug deal gone wrong, he teams with his former CIA colleague O'Leary (Chapman) to solve the mystery. He gets help from his pals, the flaming Cream Corn (Davidson) and tough-guy Bullhorn (Minns), and also has time to romance the orphanage activist Gloria (Richardson). And the trail to the killer leads him through the kung fu treachery of the fiendish Dr Wu (Yuan) right to Tricky Dicky's White House.

Juwanna Mann Review


Bad
Hollywood's latest cross-dressing comedy comes from Warner Bros., a studio that up until now has been enjoying a successful summer run (Scooby-Doo, Insomnia, and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood). Juwanna Mann -- best described as Tootsie in high tops -- should stop the studio's momentum dead in its tracks when it finally hits screens, as this bland, tiresome and uninspired farce has been sitting in the can awaiting distribution for almost two years, gathering mold and cobwebs when it should have been polishing jokes and shoring up plotlines.

Miguel A. Nunez Jr. stars as Jamal Jeffries, egotistical bad-boy of the UBA (apparently the NBA didn't want their brand associated with this Mann), who gets suspended from the Charlotte Beat for repeated examples of lewd behavior on and off the court. His agent (Kevin Pollak) quits on him, claiming no one will employ a hothead, regardless of his talent. Desperate to fuel his extravagant lifestyle, Jeffries dons a wig, some padding, and his aunt's best sneakers to create Juwanna Mann, a muscular two-guard who tries out for and makes the Beat's female counterpart, the WUBA Charlotte Banshees. Whether he/she can maintain the ruse all season lies at the heart of this limp comedy.

Pros And Cons Review


Terrible
Rarely do you see a movie that is as equally unfunny as it is sheerly improbable. While the thought of funny man Larry Miller locked away in a hard-time prison holds the promise of sheer farce value, there is literally no payoff at all to be found in this dog. Cameos by Jerry Seinfeld and Paul Reiser are the lone bright spots here, but even they aren't enough to drag Pros and Cons out of one-starsville. Simply hideous.

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.

Woo Review


Weak
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.

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.

Juwanna Mann Review


Terrible

The line flubs and other outtakes that run with some movies' closing credits are often the best part of a bad comedy, but "Juwanna Mann" is the first movie I've ever seen in which the outtakes contain all the cut scenes the movie needed to be any good at all.

This trite "Tootsie" redeux set in the world of professional basketball stars Miguel A. Nunez Jr. (he was the voodoo practitioner in last week's "Scooby-Doo") as Jamal Jeffries, a rich, arrogant, showboating, ball-hogging, tantrum-throwing NBA star who gets kicked off his team, goes broke and decides to dress up in drag so he can play in the women's basketball league. But get this: Not until the those aforementioned outtakes are there any scenes of Jamal trying to transform himself, wiggling into skirts and working on his high-heel walk.

He just shows up at a try-out for the fictitious Charlotte Banshees decked out as an unconvincing dame named Juwanna, swinging his hips and talking in a falsetto. He's offered a contract after five minutes of practice, which he signs without reading.
