Keenen Ivory Wayans wrote, directed, and starred in this hilarious parody of blaxploitation films in the comedy I'm Gonna Git You Sucka. Jack Spade (Wayans) returns home from a hitch in the army to find his brother Junebug has died from an overdose of gold chains, leaving his widow Cheryl (Dawnn Lewis) and mother Ma Bell (Ja'net DuBois) alone to fend for themselves. Ma throws two inept thugs (Damon Wayans and Kadeem Hardison) sent by the evil white guy Mr. Big (John Vernon) down a flight of stairs. Junebug owes $5,000 to Mr. Big for his gold-chain addiction and tries to force Cheryl into prostitution to pay off the debt. Jack recruits his old friend to go after Mr. Big to seek revenge. John Slade (Bernie Casey), Hammer (Isaac Hayes), Slammer (Jim Brown) Kung Fu Joe (Steve James) and the former Pimp Of The Year Flyguy (Antonio Fargas) join up with Jack to avenge his brother' death. Chris Rock makes a brief appearance as the annoying customer who risks his life by irking rib joint owner Hammer. Funny and fast paced, the writing, acting, sight gags and cameos by Robert Townsend, Peggy Lipton, Clarence Williams III, Eve Plumb (Jan from The Brady Bunch), Kim Wayans, and Gary Owens makes this a must-see for any comedy fan.~Dan Pavlides
I haven’t seen this movie in years. Great film and love the one rib scene. I can’t think of nothing negative of this classic
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Any one out there NOT a fan of this classic? Just great fun with a loving nod to those 70s Drive In gems. SO many stars, this one creates a solar system unto itself; so many chuckles, snickers, and downright belly laffs, you're guaranteed to have a grand time. The scene with a very young Chris Rock and Isaac Hayes alone are worth twice the price of admission! Highest recommendation for just a 90 minute yuck fest............ENJOY!
