I'm Gonna Git You Sucka [DVD] [1988]

One of the 1980s' classic cult comedies comes to DVD in a surprisingly sparse package. So sparse, in fact, that the only bonus feature present is a theatrical trailer. Visually the disc fares little better -- the picture is a little better than a new VHS copy and appears to have been prepared hastily at best. At least it's not pan and scan -- the original theatrical ratio of 1.85:1 has been maintained. The disc's soundtrack is presented in a lackluster Dolby Pro-logic mix which has a mediocre bass presence but makes almost no use of the surround speakers. Overall, this disc reeks of being a victim of hasty production. The film was never a wild success but subsequent word of mouth has garnered it a cult following over the years, and it's a pity that more effort didn't go into the disc's production.

I'm Gonna Git You Sucka!
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, Rovi
