Product Description

The adventures of Pootie Tang, an inner city crime fighter who speaks a language that nobody understands.
Genre: Feature Film Urban Comedy
Rating: PG13
Release Date: 2-MAY-2006
Media Type: DVD

Amazon.com

Pootie Tang pushes blaxploitation to the point of surrealism. The title character--who first appeared on The Chris Rock Show--speaks a kind of slang on steroids, an incomprehensible stream of nonsense syllables that nonetheless makes him irresistible to women and a threat to evildoers everywhere. Pootie is part movie star, part superhero, righting wrongs with the slap of his daddy's belt. But when an evil corporation uses a super-ho named Ireenie (Jennifer Coolidge from Best in Show and Legally Blonde) to steal this magic belt, Pootie must find himself again. In the title role, Lance Crouther glides through the movie like Isaac Hayes's skinny younger brother, while Chris Rock lends his trademark bark to multiple roles, including Pootie's father. Crazed editing and a great soundtrack give Pootie Tang a little extra oomph. A bizarre comedy, likely to develop a cult following. Cameos by Missy Elliot and Bob Costas. --Bret Fetzer

Customer Reviews

Pootie tang is one of the best black funny movies ever to me.
T. Shannon
I went into this movie thinking it was going to be one of those "so bad it's good" movies.
John Forkner
Louis does admit that the movie is junk after they re-edited his version.

Don't let the title lead you astray! This is NOT one of those gross-out sex movies that are all the rage at the metroplex. In fact, the title is the only offensive thing about the whole picture!
I went into this movie thinking it was going to be one of those "so bad it's good" movies. So you can imagine my surprise when I started laughing and couldn't stop until the final scene of the movie. It's nonsense. It's a joyful, daffy comedy. I mean, can you resist a movie with lines like, "Nobody could ever understand what Pootie was saying, but man, he sure was cool"? The characters and situations are over the top, but the actors are 100% committed to line after ridiculous line that it SOARS. It's one of those comedies that makes you think, "Why don't they make em like this anymore?"
The REAL star of this show, however, is Wanda Sykes who plays Pootie's gal Biggie Shorty, who "dresses up all nice and dances on the street next to a buncha ho's" (but that doesn't mean she's hookin'). She walks away with the whole picture. Chris Rock gives her some tough competition as a radio DJ and as Pootie's father, as does Jennifer Coolidge who plays the super-ho Ireenie, but in the end, Biggie Shorty is the star.
I'm speechless. This is one of my favorite movies of all time. And this coming from a guy whose favorite movies are CITIZEN KANE and CASABLANCA.

An urban Übermensch, Pootie Tang boasts boundless sex appeal and talent (he's so cool that his latest hit song needs neither music nor lyrics). Armed with a deadly accurate belt and an odd vocabulary, Pootie speaks like a hip-hop version of Jodie Foster in NELL. Played with deadpan intensity by Lance Crouther, only context and Bob Costas can decipher our hero's dialogue. Pootie makes gibberish fun and highly quotable.

More than Pootie making his enemies say "nay-no" to evil by whuppin' ass with his belt, Louis C.K.'s POOTIE TANG boasts the new millennium's most exciting scenes of a gorilla attack. The film also sports a terrific supporting cast that includes Wanda Sykes as Biggie Shortie (an off the hook hoochie), Robert Vaughn as Dick Lecter (the big name villain), and Chris Rock in a host of roles, including the moralistic to a fault, Daddy Tang.

Also known as SIGN YOUR PITTY ON THE RUNNING KINE, C.K.'s film is a modern comedy cum blaxploitation classic, reminiscent of genre greats. There's the Caucasian mastermind who's as nutty as Shelly Winters in CLEOPATRA JONES. There's the protagonist's unbelievable sexual prowess similar to that of Melvin Van Peebles in SWEET SWEETBACK'S BAADASSS SONG. And, there's a car wash confrontation that smacks of BLACK BELT JONES. "Sadatai!"

There are very few movies I have seen in my lifetime that have made me laugh hard. I'm talking about genuinely funny movies that only intelligent people get. Orgazmo was one of those movies. The Princess Bride was also one of those movies.
Pootie Tang is one of those movies. (...) I can't get through a day without watching it at least once, now.
I can't explain the ingenuity coursing all throughout this film. "Pootie Tang grew up in a small town outside of Gary, Illinois. That town was... CHICAGO!" Little things like that, and big things like Pootie's pseudo-sentence-fragments. The soundtrack fits so perfectly with the movie. I think they should've used that Dirty Dee song more. Pootie's song, which was just silence, and the father busting in to tell his son to "turn that noise down NOW!" The western-style sequence where they basically use stop-motion to place Pootie and Dirty Dee closer and closer to one another until they're touching and then they've suddenly passed through one another. The belt Pootie's father bought at Piggly-Wiggly for 59 cents. Daddy Tang being the third person mauled by a gorilla at the steel mill. "It's tough out there, Pootie. You got drugs... crime... gorillas..." No attempt to make the monkey look real.
Bob Costas, Robert Vaughn, and the hilarious Dave Attel all lend their hands to the hilarity. I can't even list everything that's great about it because I'd have to put the entire script down. See it,(...)

This movie was showing at the dollar theater near where i live, and i was excited i had a free moment to see it. I love most of Chris Rock's comedy, and i was looking forward to seeing a movie that seemed to be totally goofy from the previews. I was on the floor crying in the first five minutes. This movie is what most comedies should be like, funny. The plot is a joke, the dialouge is a joke, the acting is so good the humor comes across very strong. This movie isn't for everyone though. If you can't enjoy a movie for simply being a good time, then don't watch this movie. On the other hand,if you can look past the fact that it isn't going to be a life-changing movie, but one of the funniest movies you will ever see, then buy this DVD the day it comes out.

"Pootie Tang" is the ultimate guilty pleasure film. Sometimes I ask myself, "Why do I laugh at this?" I don't know why, but it's crazy. Chris Rock has done well on this movie. I don't know how you come up with a story about a funny talking super hero. Throughout the whole movie, this guy is saying a thing that doesn't make any sense, but the characters surrounding him all understand. How do you come up something like that?!? And put it into a feature film!!! One liners like "sa da tay" and "sine your pity on the runny kine", are classics.

Forget the fact that the movie is silly and extremely basic in plot, the story of this modern-day inner-city African-American untouchable super hero is funny, and on a elementary level, it even gets some socio-political digs in too. The movie is only 70 minutes long, but it manages to take shots at corporate America, some black stereotypes, and society's habit of unrestrained hero worship. I was tempted to label the movie "dumb", but given these little angles, it's obvious that there was some cleverness at work behind the scenes.

"Pootie Tang" was conceived on the HBO hit The Chris Rock Show, in this spin off movie, Pootie is trying to take all the junk food, drugs and alcohol off the street that is being distributed by Dick Lecter (Robert Vaughn). The supporting cast includes The Chris Rock Show regular Wanda Sykes. Missy Elliot also does a cameo in this as well.

"Pootie Tang" seems like a send up to 70's blaxpoitation films, but at the same time, I don't know what it is. "Pootie Tang" is a mixed bag of funk music, cheesy action and comedy. It all works for "Pootie Tang" making it the most unusual film ever made. If the idea of a character that combines the talents of Buckwheat, Austin Powers, and Shaft appeals to you, then you will find something to like about "Pootie Tang".
