Don’t Be A Menace To South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood (1996)

(On VHS, August 2000) This isn’t completely successful as a sustained parody, but it would be a shame to use this as an excuse to miss out on a fairly funny send-up of those oh-so-important black gangster/’hood films. There are several hilarious moments, though they are scattered here and there between long stretches that, at best, only elicit a grin or two. Keep your eyes open for tons of background jokes. The best concept of the film, of course, is to set the ‘hood in a completely average suburban community. Uneven, but definitely better than some of its parody contemporaries such as the execrable Spy Hard, Dracula: Dead And Loving It, etc…
