Booty Call: The Bootiest Edition [DVD] [1997]

1997's hilarious safe-sex romp Booty Call found its audience on the home-video shelf, so it's really not surprising that demand would be high for another DVD edition, this time coming in the form of Columbia TriStar's appropriately titled The Bootiest Edition. Stacked with enough goodies to make your Momma blush, this new disc is sure to be a great buy for casual fans and, most assuredly, an annoyance for those who already own the first Booty Call disc. The 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen picture has stayed the same, as has the 5.1 Dolby Digital track. The new stuff is mainly split into three big extras -- the first being the filmmaker commentary with director Jeff Pollack, writer Takashi Bufford, and producer John Morrissey. It's a fun track that that's pretty light in tone, with the director and producer taking center stage while Bufford takes a backseat for most of the chat. While it's sad that co-writer Bootsie is missing from the track, there's still much to gleam from the talk, such as the constant feuds between Jamie Foxx and Vivica A. Fox all the way to Bill Cosby's all-too-public gripes about the picture. Another big bonus that's been included is the alternate ending that was scrapped after the first test screening deemed it slightly disturbing. While it's true that seeing all four leads in Nutty Professor-like 50-year-old fat makeup isn't the most pleasant thing in the world, the clip still has the juice as it brings a few of the film's infamous card-table scene gags to new heights (or lows, in this case). Also included is the brand-new "Smooth Operator" mini-documentary, an in-depth look at the nature of booty calls that mixes interviews with people on the street, comedians, and, of course, Luis Guzman!?! Add onto all of this a bevy of bonus trailers, and you have a solid release for a funny flick that will continue to sell for years to come.

Synopsis

Booty Call
It's 3 a.m. -- do you know where your condoms are? That's one of the dilemmas befalling the characters in this raunchy comedy. Rushon (Tommy Davidson) is a mild-mannered Buppie who has been going out with his girlfriend Nikki (Tamala Jones) for about seven weeks; they seem to like each other well enough, but the relationship has been mainly platonic, and Nikki isn't so sure that she wants that to change. Rushon asks Nikki out to dinner, but Nikki wants to bring along her tart-tongued friend Lysterine (Viveca A. Fox). Rushon has to find a date for her, and he comes up with his rude-boy buddy Bunz (Jamie Foxx). Lysterine and Bunz soon hit it off, and, to Rushon's surprise, Nikki decides it's time for their relationship to move to the physical level. Only one problem: this is the '90s, and all parties involved want to be sure they're practicing safe sex. Which means Rushon and Bunz have to find some condoms fast, before the evening's mood evaporates. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
