Product Description

A hilarious Soul Cinema send-up, this ultra-slick, urban action comedy blows 70's blaxploitation movies right out of the 'hood! Featuring the very funny Wayans family (Keenen, Damon and Kim), Bernie Casey, Antonio Fargas, Isaac Hayes, Jim Brown, Ja'net DuBois, David Alan Grier, Kadeem Hardison and Chris Rock, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka is a perfect "mixture of nostalgia, silliness and genuinely unpredictable humor" (The New York Times). Jack Spade, a goody-goody war hero with medals for short-hand, returns to the ghetto to discover that his brother, Junebug, has OG'd (Over-Golded on jewelry). Jack swears revenge against the local gang boss, Mr. Big, and sets off to enlist an army of Shaft, Superfly and Black Caesarlook-a-likes, that is. They don't come easy, cheap or youngbut they do have nice clothes and enough firepower left in them to practically destroy Mr. Big's Big Brim Bar where the bad guys wearyou guessed itbig hats!

From Keenan Ivory Wayans, the man who brought us Jim Carrey (initially just one of the bunch on Wayans's television comedy-sketch show, In Living Color), comes I'm Gonna Git You Sucka (1988), a comedy spoof on the blaxploitation films of the 1970s. Wayans plays Jack Spade, an army private just returning from the service. He comes home to find his younger brother June Bug dead of a overdose of gold chains (an "O.G.") He vows revenge, and with the help of some of the neighborhood's old school heroes including Flyguy (Antonio Fargas), Kung Fu Joe (Steve James), Hammer (Isaac Hayes), Slammer (football star Jim Brown), and John Slade (Bernie Casey), Spade wages a war against Mr. Big, the neighborhood crime lord.

In the tradition of Airplane! and Naked Gun, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka pokes fun through satire and offensive comedy. The film also features some of the players that would end up on In Living Color and has appearances from such varied actors as Clarence Williams III, Eve Plumb (better known to most as Jan Brady), and Chris Rock as a rib-joint customer. --Shannon Gee

This movie stands the test of time and is still as hilarious today as it was when it was released. You will laugh out loud as the ridiculousness and fashion excesses of the 70s are mocked. Keenan really outdid himself with this one. "Huggy Bear" wearing gold fish filled glass heeled shoes after coming out of jail is too hilarious for words.

Watch and enjoy.

I'M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA is one hilarious film; even though many of the jokes fall flat at times, the whole is superlative tongue in cheek satire. A broad humored satire of those wonderful 70's "black exploitation" films, Wayans and crew serve up scene after scene of hilarity. For instance: a sleazy girl is singing a sultry version of "When the Saints Come Marching In," and when Wayans asks who she is, the waitress says "She's the director's sister." (She is!). When ex-football star Jim Brown asks Wayans why he thinks he's qualified to be a black hero, Wayans tells him "I'm an ex football player." When Dawnn Lewis as Wayans' sweetie gets the cramps, she really gets cranky!! John Vernon as Mr. Big spouts off why shouldn't he be in a black exploitation movie, other actors have! There are so many scenes like this that one can't help but laugh and laugh again.
Featuring a cavalcade of black and white actors, including Clarence Williams III, Isaac Hayes, Ja'net Dubois, Antonio Fargas and Steve James, I'M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA is a hoot to watch!

This movie is too funny!! You will kill yourself laughing...I saw this movie with a friend and we almost hurt ourselves falling off the sofa when we saw the movie. There are some classic spots...when Heat of Night actress...kicks off her leg, and says "don't make me hop after you"...that whole scene is wild...also, LaDawn, who was not feeling well, had to go home, and she was about to be attacked, and went off on the attacker, and he said what's wrong with you, you got the devil in you, response..."NO. CRAMPS". You've got to see it to believe it...Antonio Fargas's fish shoes, Kung Fu Joe...fighting and leaving the phone message. Then there's the scene where, Isaac Hayes, straps on the guns...well you just watch. Chris Rock, who wanted to order one rib and get a "sip" of soda...with a wad of money. Move the soda and popcorn out of the way, because they're going to be spilled all over the sofa! If you want to laugh like you've never laughed before, watch "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka".

The best way to sum up this film is by saying that this is one of the funniest movies I have seen. This film ranks right up there with Airplane and Blazing Saddles. And by that I mean that after watching this film you will find yourself quoting lines from this film for years to come. I first saw this film over 15 years ago and to this day I still find it hilarious. Even though I have seen it many times and I know all the jokes I still laugh at them. This film is that funny. This is the Wayans Bros. back when they first got started and were at there best. This film is a parody of every blaxploitation film ever made. And it is funny picking out refernces to the different films. Also keep an eye out for cameos from various actors. And always pay attention to things that are happening in the background. 15+ years later and I am still finding things happening in the background that I missed before. So order this film sit back and be prepared to laugh so hard that you cry.

In 1988, two films reinvented the parody that Blazing Saddles and Airplane perfected. The Naked Gun was an inspired lunatic of a movie based on an insanely hysterical TV show. Then there was this filmed account that took several of the stars to those great '70's blaxploitation films and allowed them to poke fun of themselves. Sucka begins by taking us to Anytown, USA and showing right away what happens when one wears too many gold chains. This unfortunate soul was the brother of returning 'soldier boy' Jack Spade, who vows to bring down the gold chain industry run by the infamous Mr. Big. With the help of legendary hero John Slade and his former partners Hammer, Slammer, super pimp Fly Guy and the martial arts master Kung Fu Joe, Jack wages war against Big and his lackies.
This could easily be the plot of a typical '70's grindhouse movie and writer/director/star Keenan Ivory Wayans is fully aware of this. He treats this comical homage with restpect and great care. There are visual gags aplenty on top of countless quips and double entendres, but the film never thumbs its nose at those great actioners it is parodying. This is blaxpoitation in a form that can be viewed and enjoyed by anyone who does not allow a few crass jokes to interfere with a good sense of humor. There's also plenty of action and even a tender, but thankfully brief, romantic interlude between Jack and his brother's widow.
Inspired casting makes this film's success complete. Bernie Casey, Jim Brown, Isaac Hayes and John Vernon are the old hands who know this genre so well. Damon Wayans is on hand to supply some wonderful comic bits. This movie just plain succeeds. Not for children, to be sure. But for the adult who likes their humor a bit juvenile, this is most highly recommended.
