Editorial Reviews

Lil' Pimp is the kind of feature-length cartoon that gives Bill Cosby nightmares while gathering a cult following in the hip-hop community. It's the kind of crude, outrageous, and utterly tasteless entertainment that makes conservatives cringe and liberals reconsider the right to free speech. It also happens to be subversively funny enough to qualify as a guilty pleasure, if you can gear into the sheer kitsch of its animated story, in which an innocent, small-town white kid helps a hooker-in-distress (voice of Lil' Kim), hooks up with her pimp (Bernie Mac), learns the rules of pimpin' ("A pimp must possess style, must defend his turf, and has gotta turn out a square lady"), and foils the plot of a corrupt mayor (William Shatner, having fun while slummin' it) who wants to monopolize the pimpin' game. If it had the irreverent intelligence of South Park, this in-yo'-face adult cartoon might've been an urban classic. Instead it's just a juvenile romp with impressive hip-hop street-cred, not to mention fart jokes, lots of booty-licious ho's, a foul-mouthed ferret (Ludacris), and an incorruptible hero who makes Huggy Bear look like a rank amateur. It's no surprise this went straight-to-video, but it's guaranteed to get some props by its obvious target audience. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Fat Albert and the Flintstones it ain't July 2, 2005
I remember when this was in the works, some civil rights folks out in LA were already talking about boycotting and banning this.

First of all, all that did (as it always does, will they ever learn?) was make people curious about it and check it out in droves on DVD (in the words of Rocky the Flying Squirrel, "But that trick NEVER works!").

In either case, this movie is so wild and over the top that it is IMPOSSIBLE to take seriously. This is a bizzare (and admittedly imaginative) cartoon of a lonely white suburban kid who finds a father figure in a pimp named "Fruit Juice" (voiced expertly by Bernie Mac). The Mac and a prostitute voiced by Little Kim (again, perfect casting) teach the boy about the Pimp game and about life in general.

There could be concerns that like "Soul Plane," this would be nothing but trashy stereotypes. Perhaps, but it's a guilty pleasure with some really charming and funny moments. (The scene where the kid takes the Pimp and Little Kim to school for "show and tell" is a SCREAM!). Yeah, one could go on and on about stereotypes, the morality of a story involving children and pimping, etc. but unlike "The Mack," "American Pimp," ad nauseum, this film does not take itself seriosuly and is clearly just a comedy.

Basically, leave your brains (and the kiddies) and all the analysis and sociology at the door for this one- get some of your buddies over for beer and pizza, and LAFF Your (posterior) OFF!

BTW-It would help this DVD if they added some of the original web "Lil Pimp" cartoons as extra features, as was the case with the "Undercover Brother" DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars keep it Pimpin January 21, 2006

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly Funny December 11, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well I have to say, I didn't even know about this film until a friend of mine brought it up when it was released on dvd. As soon as I did some research and seen who the cast was I was curious. Then I read some of the horrible reviews the film got by critics and I knew right away I had to get it. As we all know critics tend to bash the funniest films because they need to be politically correct. As soon as I got this dvd in the mail and watched it I laughed so hard I had to tell all my friends and now they all want it so Christmas shopping will be easy for me this year. Hehe, if you like comedy and you actually have a sense of humor, then this film is for you. If you can't take a joke then you should join the other reviewers in here that bashed this movie for a fruit cocktail. Pimpin ain't easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greenlight! March 1, 2005
When I saw Lil' Pimp on the web back in 1998, I knew that the names Brooks and Dilstrap would one day be synomous with likes of Scorsese, Speilberg and Kubrick. See you next year Oscar!

5.0 out of 5 stars Animated Artistry Worthy of an Oscar February 2, 2005
I was skeptical at first when I saw the DVD cover, but I was more than pleasantly surprised when I sat through this divine comedy. The dialog was world class and the jokes delivered a one, two punch to my funny bone! What a hilarious concept!; a naive young innocent white kid connects with a group of pimps and saves the day! I was literally on the edge of my seat wondering how this movie was going to end. I know that audiences of all ages and tastes will identify with the main characters in this movie. It's an emotional roller coaster; I laughed, I cried, I was swept away. Kudos to the writer and the director for giving me 80 minutes of pure comedy bliss!!! Hey PIXAR!!, eat your heart out.
