Editorial Reviews

Rap superstar Master P (I Got the Hook Up) and live-wire comedian Eddie Griffin (Armageddon) cut loose in this hilariously hip, sexy urban comedy that stands up and delivers…the laughs! Miles "Foolish" Waise (Griffin) is a fast-rising phenomenon on the local comedy nightclub scene. While his manager wants him to sell out and make the big bucks, Foolish just wants to chill out and make his audiences happy. He's also got to put up with the half-baked schemes of his always-scammin' brother Quentin "Fifty Dollah" Waise (Master P) - a small-time hoodlum whose secret dream is to start a comedy club with Foolish. But when the two brothers get caught up in a gun-toting prank that goes bad, Quentin finds himself on the wrong side of the hood's most ruthless drug lord, the infamous El Dorado Ron (Andrew Dice Clay). Now, it's going to take more than brotherly love for these siblings to survive the inner-city jungle long enough to make their stand-up dreams come true!

4.0 out of 5 stars Foolish Is A Terrific Standup Showcase August 31, 2000
Format:DVD
Other reviewers have given this movie a hard time, but it is unwarranted. While it is true that the plot is a bit on the weak side, the whole purpose of the movie is to make you laugh. It succeeds admirably in this. Foolish is basically an Eddie Griffin comedy show intermingled with a movie. The movie itself is your standard fare. It was fun to see Marla Gibbs again and Master P made further strides, successfully I might add, to become a mainstream actor. The spot where Foolish really shines is the stand-up routines. Eddie Griffin is one of the best comics out there. It's unfortunate that he hasn't had more exposure. All of his material was fresh and funny. When he was onstage, I couldn't stop laughing! Only once during the film was I disappointed. This was when Griffin gave a monologue that Chris Rock originated in Bigger and Blacker. Even though it was a bit plagerized, this single flaw doesn't detract from the film, especially if you haven't seen Bigger and Blacker. Overall, I feel that you will ultimately be satisfied by this film if you keep your expectations in line. This film is not the outstanding plot-driven comedy you may be searching for, but if you are looking for some hilarious standup, Foolish will have you rolling!

The movie started out with a good story line and the stand up was pretty funny, but what happened to the rest of the story.

1.0 out of 5 stars urban collectors December 9, 2010
Format:DVD
Urban Collectors advertised something they didn't have. When I asked for a substitution, they hemmed and hawed about the price I paid. I said when a realtor has an item on the shelf with a price, they come through with the very article or a sub for the same marked price. I got a "I have to talk tg management and will get back later to you" then "Our phones are out" the "We lost your order..start again!"

2.0 out of 5 stars Good try No Limit, April 8, 2008
Format:DVD
Foolish is a decent flick from No Limit Films. Eddie Griffin does what he can with the script, but it almost takes away from his acting chops. This film should have just been a stand up comedy film, because that's all it really is
