Editorial Reviews

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

5.0 out of 5 stars A Zany Retelling of Samson and Delilah November 11, 2001
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Classic June 1, 2006
Format:DVD
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!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Comedy Ever? October 29, 2001
I believe that Pootie Tang is arguably the best comedy film ever, and I am a comedy snob. Very few people saw this film, fewer still stayed 'til the end, fewer still loved it and fewer still loved it for the right reasons. This movie is NOT a parody of Blaxsploitation films, it just uses those films as a starting point. This movie is not "so stupid it's funny" but rather "so ingenius it's funny." Critics and viewers alike have had a difficult time wrapping their minds around this movie because it is unlike anything ever seen before. The film's ultra-positive energy is a new kind of breakthough "edgy" that I believe is ten years ahead of its time. The character of Pootie is inscrutible and brilliant, yet tender and moving. Never have I seen a movie with more perfect casting (including documentaries!). So many mistakes could have ruined this film: the editing, the acting, the writing, but there was not a single misstep (despite the claims of creator Louis C.K.).
As I walked out of the theater after seeing Pootie Tang for the first time, I felt stunned, and blessed, to live in a world in which a movie like this could exist. After the third and forth viewings, the impact was lessoned not a whit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Saba Tay on the Tippie Ti. December 25, 2001
Format:DVD
This movie came and went in theaters so fast I didn't get a chance to see it, but I rented it because Pootie Tang was always funny on the Chris Rock show, and I consider Chris Rock one of the funniest men in America. Pootie Tang is a rapper who speaks some sort of very extreme rap lingo, to the point where you cannot understand a word he says. Meanwhile, everyone else always understands him (kind of like Chewbacca, somehow the other characters can interpret what he says perfectly) though once in a while they'll say, "What the hell you talkin about?"
The plot isn't complex, Pootie fights bad guys (like drug dealers) with his magic belt, sings songs that somehow people can understand, and the ladies love him. Chris Rock plays his father, one of his friends, a DJ, and probably some other character I'm forgetting. Meanwhile The Man wants to brainwash Pootie into endorsing their horrible product, and (surprise surprise) he loses his magic belt, and goes on a mission to get it back. Wanda Sykes is great as...uh...I forget her name, but she narrates the story and helps Pootie, plus she wears a different cool-... wig in every scene. I wasn't rolling on the floor laughing, but the movie was funny and entertaining It starts out with Bob Costas interviewing him and saying he's gonna show a clip from his movie, 80 minutes go by, maybe even less (the end credits seemed to go on for 10 minutes) . The opening, with him fighting Dolemite-type bad guys, is hilarious. I also was impressed that the movie didn't rely on gross-out humor and wasn't violent-I don't think anyone got killed- and has a positive message that makes it a good family movie. I think it was "Do right, fight what's wrong, but the important thing is to love the world while you're doing it ." And what's wrong with that?
