For anyone looking for a serious movie about Blacks in the 70's you probably don't want to watch this. But if you grew up in the ghetto and you're looking for something GHETTO FABULOUS then this is your movie. If you're looking for a movie that is absolutely HILARIOUS this is your movie. This is truly a classic and I saw it for the first time when I was in the 9th grade about 18 years ago. Up until now, I had not been able to find it, and when I would mention it to people, only the "real" people I met had seen it. Everything about the movie was wrong, the lighting, the acting, the costumes, and especially the karate (I know Bruce Lee was (mad)!), but it was so wrong that it was funny as HELL. Even the people who say they hate it know they had to laugh when he tried to use that fake Jamaican accent to get into Leroy & Skillet's show. Or when Philadelphia Nell (OK..HELLO...the movie was shot in LA) kept answering the phone with that GHETTO "Hello". There are 2 movies that every Black person should own. ROOTS and this movie.

Funny enough I had never seen this movie until I turned 21 years old. I had heard my mom talk about my father acting in a couple of movies, but I hadn't seen any of them until this one. This was one of the funniest, worst movies I have ever seen. It was rediculous but hilarious. I couldn't help but laugh throughout the movie. My dad Marvin Jones plays Scarface Willie in the movie, and it was funny to watch him act. Cliff Roquemore was my father's best friend and it was nice to see his children throughout the movie. I give this movie 5 stars for it being funny and chock full of my family!

Rudy Ray Moore plays the title role in this off the wall action/comedy. Here's the deal, Petey Wheatstraw is born a full grown boy right after his mother gives birth to a watermelon? You still with me? - Anyway he grows up a little like Karate Kid and becomes the baddest comedian in town. When his arch rivals, Leroy and Skillet, hear he is coming to town to do a big show the same night they plan to grand open their new club and act, they set out to have him hit. After a massacre outside a church, where Petey is killed, the devil walks up and makes him an offer - to let him live and get revenge if he marries his super ugly daughter (hence, the devil's son in law). This one is up there with the Dolemite films in laughs and action. Rudy does it again!

While sitting on the couch trying to recover from an extremely painful tooth extraction, I looked around for a diversion. My eyes lighted on this video, which I had purchased previously but not yet viewed. I was not disappointed; this turned out to be one of the funniest movies I have seen in years! Every character and situation was taken to the extreme, the plot was ludicrous but oh so funny, and Petey's poetic jokes were hilarious. It looked like everyone was enjoying playing his/her role to the hilt. Petey's attempt to beat Lucifer at his own game was bound to fail, as we all knew it would, but it was sure fun watching him try to get out of marrying the ugliest woman ever seen. A few splashes of wisdom are thrown in for good measure. Leroy and Skillet were a comedy team who should have gone straight to the top of the comedic ladder of fame; they were funny enough to build a TV series around their shenanigans. It looked like everyone was having a great time making this film. I laughed from beginning to end and it sure helped take my mind off my throbbing jaw. This movie is offensive only if you are the type of person who takes life way too seriously and cannot laugh at his/her own human foibles. Though raunchy at times, it is a relief to view a comedy that doesn't rely on a continuous stream of sexual jokes to succeed, but creates a nice balance which results in a comedy all adults can enjoy. It has certainly gained a place among my top 10 most favorite comedy films. If you are willing to suspend any semblance of reality and just want to have a good time, get this movie. It is just the thing to brighten your day. Thank you, Mr. Wheatstraw and company, for reminding us that life does have its lighter moments.

Rappin and jivein is what Moore is all about and he is back at it again in this his third movie. This movie has some beautifull kung-fu fighting scenes in it along with Moore's classic insultes. It dosen't get any better than this.

Bruce who? Moore once again comes to us with another totally absurd and totally outrageous adventure. With his trademark martial arts moves and inimitable personality, Moore takes us on another fast and creaky ghetto roller coaster ride. The ending shows us that even the most beloved hero can lose in the end. This and Dolemite is Moore's greatest work.

This film is THE most deranged, horrific, nasty, disturbing, idiotic mess I have EVER seen pass itself off as a comedy. It's awesome.
At first, I thought this was the most inept movie ever made, but now I see that Rudy Ray and his partner in crime Cliff Roqumore made the first piece of Ghetto Surrealism to stink up the screen (This movie does actually bring to mind certain unpleasant odors). This accomplishment should not be denegrated simply because it was undoubtedly unintentional. Technical flaws aside(and they are plenty ample), there are images and scenarios in this film which play out in mind like a reoccuring nightmare(none of which I can recount without being censored). It is one of the most scatalogically obsessed films outside of Pink Flamingos or Salo, but I think it is more successful than either in its attempts to outrage.
The performances are all variations on racial stereotypes and ghetto caricatures. This film plays like some evil cartoon. Which is to say there is a devilish imagination at work, one with utter disregard for logic and restraint. And one, seemingly without any good intentions.
If you are looking for a twisted cinematic experience look no further.
