5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Coming of Age Comedy August 9, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
An excellent coming to age comedy with a bit of drama, "Hangin With the Homeboys" chronicles a night in the life of four friends in the Bronx as they discover that people are often different from what they appear like.
Featuring the talents of John Leguizamo ("To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar"), Doug E. Doug ("Cool Runnings"), Mario Joyner ("The Chris Rock Show") and Nestor Serrano, the film provided the audience with four fresh characters and places them in a series of occurrences that make them realize how different they real are from one another. From Fernando's (Serrano) scam of impersonating an Italian in order to attract girls (he is Puerto Rican) to the final scene beneath the Metro North bridge in Manhattan, the character's all accept change at the end. The most memorable part of this film has to be when John Leguizamo discovers that the girl he is in love with is a totally different person, which makes him accept reality and inspires him to find a way out of the social state he currently is in.
The film is an excellent tribute to anyone who has grown up in New York City. Director Joseph Vasquez did an excellent job of writing and producing this small-budget film. Sadly, Vasquez, who at the time was using heroin, died from complications of AIDS a few years after the film's release. The film serves as a wonderful legacy for a genius that gave the world an excellent story with touches of humanism sprinkled throughout.
If you liked "American Graffiti" then give this film a chance. I also recommend "I Like It Like That" to anyone in a mood of seeing films in the Bronx.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Hang Out Night in DaBronx June 2, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This coming of age movie was overshadowed by Boys in the Hood as they were both released the same weekend. This movie unlike Boys in the Hood or New Jack City despite it's title is not about gang violence. Four guys from the same Bronx neighorhood spend a full friday night together. Each but two of them are growing away from this weekly ritual and the two that aren't are not really friends. Hilarious Drama involving quick witted humor and comical situations that come one after another. Joseph B.Vasquez who unfortuntely past away after directing this movie obviously crammed years of one liners and situations into 12 hours. Hilarious opening scenes and the memorable Nestor Seranno who plays a Puerto Rican American, Fernando who wants to be known as Vinny tells a girlfriend,"Thanks for the food. That's so nice I wish everyody was this nice to me." As he opens his refrigerator door only to cram the dish in with the other dishes of food made by other women. Doug E Doug who blames his bad fortune on being black, even to black people. The troubled, sexually unexperienced and very shy John Leguizamo who only really connects with one of the guys. Comic Mario Joyner well acts his role as the corny but seemingly cool actor wannabe selling magazines. This bunch goes out and hits on unsuspecting women, Crashes a Party and has a big adventure. It's a night of big ups and downs which ends with a message and a big laugh. The only problem with this movie is it's mediocre editing which has minor negative effect. This is truly one of the funniest films available. The comedy is so good you know that these events are based on a true story. See it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious kids coming of age movie. June 27, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
In this present world of inner city gangstas and wanna be thugs this 1991 comedy based in New Yorks South Bronx is a reminder to anybody that growing up can be fun. The characters are male and streetwise yet do not threaten. They are each different but truly love to laugh and be funny. Their priority is to hit on women especially Vinny whose real name is Fernando played by (Nestor Serrano) who is a Puerto Rican American trying hard to pass for Italian thinking this will give him an edge with the "girlies". You've seen Vinny before in John Travoltas version of "Babarino" on Welcome back Kotter, however it's the early 90's and the world is a tougher place. It's pre gunshots and drivebys and although not glamorously edited it's content involves those people you already know or should.

I have seen the movie numerous times and enjoy it more & more with each viewing. The 4 characters are funny, watch each others back and have a good time without having to hurt anybody. Their adventures crashing the party, getting arrested and dancing at the club are funny. I enjoyed the positive aspects of the film like whether to go to college or not, just be yourself instead of someone you're not and not to judge people on appearance alone. My favorite character was Vinny/Fernando and his mannerisms when dealing with others. The funniest bits were the ugly girlfriend contest and dropping the quarter at the x-rated booth. I highly recommend this film. It is nice to see a movie where the minorities are not treated like thieves and thugs. This movie is a gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent coming of age serio-comedy May 16, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
One of the most under-appreciated films of the 90's. Truly enjoyed the film from begining to end. The plot (if you can call it one) is just like the title says, just a bunch a guys hanging out in the city. I think that anyone growing up in the city will relate to this movie and will see parrallels to their own lives. That's why I think I enjoyed so much. Touched many topics like racism, police officers in the city, and above all friendship. Definetley worth a try!
