Martin Lawrence: You So Crazy [DVD] [1994]

You So Crazy is virtually devoid of extra features except for the basic theatrical trailer and a biography. The preview fails to show any scenes from the film, and instead takes the creative route of stressing its uncensored and crazy elements. The biography provides some nice background on Martin Lawrence's successful career. It's a good overview for viewers new to this comedian, but it fails to provide anything beyond the elementary information. This entire concert takes place on a simple, dark stage with no variations of any kind, lessening the importance of pristine visuals due to the simplicity of the colors and camera shots. Unfortunately, this full-screen transfer falls short of the expected picture level for this concert film. It resembles VHS in the sense that it falls short of the level of clarity normally associated with the DVD format. The images lack any major defects, but they also contain a significant level of grain and haziness that is surprising. Though not detracting too much from the concert, this lesser transfer is definitely noteworthy. Martin Lawrence spends the entire concert talking, with no music in the background and with a surprisingly low level of crowd noise. This essentially limits the 2.0-channel Dolby Surround transfer to the basic task of making sure his words are understandable. It succeeds in this aspect, and the sound moves nicely from the speakers in a clear manner. It's nothing groundbreaking, but it serves its purpose.

Synopsis

Martin Lawrence: You So Crazy
Martin Lawrence speaks out on racism, drugs, politics, and (most frequently) sex in this concert film that captures the comic on stage at a 1993 show in New York. Originally rated NC-17 for language by the MPAA, the harsh rating caused the film's original distributor, Miramax, to sell it to another company, Samuel Goldwyn, which released it unrated. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
