HIlarious and Relevant

This movie is truly a gem. It manages to both be funny and to have a good message as well. It brillaintly parodies stereotypes that Hollywood continues to use in their films and TV shows. There are many moments in here that are extremely hilarious. Even more impressive, this movie is autobiographical and comes from Robert Townsend's own experiences. Great stuff. I give this film 8 out of 10.
