Before long, Ashtray's nuclear-armed gangster cousin Loc Dog Marlon Wayans introduces him to a bizarrely comic crime underworld. I'm tell you what it's like livin' in the hood. Makes fun of the heavy-handed messages often contained in these movies, but also uses satire to make pointed comments about the lack of positive African-American female roles in movies like these and overall. Tray, I don't want you hangin' out in the streets. In another a scene, the lead character reads a bedtime story to his father who appears to be younger than him ; it's a sex story from a pornographic magazine that he reads while the teen boy masturbates under the blankets. Make sure your ass is on that plastic. Recurring joke of how the woman who is the love interest has slept with all the men in the neighborhood.
As such, exaggeration permeates the movie in every form, and is the source of much of the comedy. His fool proof way to get a woman's number is to demand it from her at gunpoint. In a gag that the father of the lead character is a few years younger than his son, the father asks his son to read him a bedtime story; the son reads a sex story from a pornographic magazine while the father is in bed masturbating under the blankets. I got my education; I two jobs to you. Gun violence is shown and parodied; however, the scene in which a white sniper shoots and kills an African-American student starting his first day of college feels way too real and far less funny in light of so many mass shootings.
He even keeps a live nuclear missile in his truck, which he uses to scare off Toothpick and his gang. However, the movie also uses comedy to raise questions of how African-American men and women are portrayed in movies like these, and in Hollywood overall. Man, if you gon' be stayin' here, you gon' have to some rules. No, it ain't like that. I'm fixin' to tell you how it is in the hood. Then he suddenly hits her so hard that she flies over to the other side of a table.
For example, Ashtray is older than his father and his best friend Loc Dog's grandmother is a trigger-happy old lady who blames her eccentric-looking kid for not being tough enough. My tried his best to give me advice. I I'm tryin' to you some responsibility. It's only once Ashtray's narration kicks in when the film establishes who the real protagonist is. But there are a lot of gangs, people get gunned down in broad daylight, and everything from ice cream trucks to walkers are liable to get stolen at gunpoint.
It's implied this is a tradition between the two, since her response is. Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood is at its best and most timeless when the humor transcends the genre of the movies it's parodying. Movie satirizes dramas from the 1990s that attempted to realistically portray life in the inner city for African-Americans. This parody has moments that are still hilarious decades after its initial release. There's a lot of humor in sight gags and exaggeration that almost reaches the gut laughs of a parody like. See, in the hood, most of us won't the age of 21.
Luckily, Ashtray falls for urban poet Dashiki Tracey Cherelle Jones , and she convinces him to go straight -- but he must deal with her manic ex-boyfriend Toothpick Darrel Heath. What you gon' be doin'? The film opens up with a youth addressing the audience on what it's like to live in the hood. When she stares at him and gives him a , he pretends to have not said anything. This is parodying the fact that was only seven years older than Cuba Gooding Jr in Boyz in the Hood, despite being father and son. He starts to learn the ways of the streets from his gun-toting cousin Loc Dog , as well as friends Preach and Crazy Legs. You ain't so tough now, little nigga.
I hate your black pants. Uh, you gon' have to keep of my cars. Hey, man, come on in. My mama take care of me. I hate my gums, because they're black.
You can take me to jail! A standoff between rival gangs brandishing weapons ends when one of the lead characters opens the back of his truck to reveal a nuclear warhead. She then abandons him permanently after this exchange: Ashtray's mother: Sorry, baby. One of the characters dies from smoking marijuana -- going into convulsions and foaming at the mouth as if he has taken a stronger drug. Most of all, I hate that black-ass Wesley Snipes. Things are crazy there, for example, he is older than his father and his best friend's grandmother is a trigger-happy old lady who blames her eccentric-looking kid for not being tough enough.
Hey, you do me a favor? I know You didn't do me wrong, Lord! He makes powerful speeches about the tyranny of whites, but is unashamed of his fetish for white women. Why is comedy often a good way to make serious points? Nigger, this ain't gon' be no free ride! Played for laughs, of course. Ashtray steps in to finish the story. Fool, I told you I don't want no damn Watchtower! I'm goin' tell you the real deal what it goes on in the hood. Talk of sex in prison. A white sniper shoots and kills an African-American college student starting his first day. In an extended scene, the lead character and his love interest engage in absurd foreplay involving various food items and condiments.
One of the lead characters gets a shy girl drunk before having sex; she turns monstrous and eager to have sex. Mercifully, the camera cuts away to Ashtray looking on unconcerned then cuts back to his aunt as she finishes, so that the actress herself wouldn't have to down the whole thing. Ashtray's mother shows up in one scene to drop him off at his father's house. The movie chronicles the exploits of a young black man whose mother returns him to the 'hood to live and learn from his father. I hate Whoopi Goldberg's lips.
