2.0 out of 5 stars "The Wash" Review June 24, 2004
"Friday" co-writer DJ Pooh tries for another run at the urban buddy comedy concept with superstar rap duo, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg playing roomates who go from the closest of buds to being at odds when Dre gets a supervising job at the car wash where Snoop works. Despite a pretty solid supporting cast including George Wallace, Tommy "Tiny" Lister, Lamont Bentley, and Alex Thomas, this one is all over the place. Dre and Snoop's musical chemistry doesn't seem to translate too well into the cinematic world. Both seemed more comfortable in the bit parts they played in "Training Day" than they do trying to be the stars of their own feature. Pooh the writer seems content with sticking to the same tired drug humor and fart jokes while Pooh the director uses big-name rapper cameos to cover up these faults. The film is so stuffed with silly gags in fact that the movie's biggest conflict is pushed to the closing 20 minutes, leaving the audience with the impression that it probably isn't that important. "The Wash" has a few fleeting moments of humor including Kurupt as a neighborhood punk who interrogates Dre at gunpoint, Pooh as one of the bumbling kidnappers, and Eminem as a disgruntled former employee of the car wash. In the end though, it feels more like an R-rated episode of "Keenen & Kel" than a comedic gem like "Friday". While I was probably anticipating this movie more than anyone, it makes for a better rental than a purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another interpreted opinion October 3, 2003
By C Davis
I borrowed the movie The Wash on DVD and I enjoyed it so much, that I went out and purchased a copy for my own collection. I've read the reviews for The Wash and was fairly surprised by the comments. However, I had to consider that not everyone loves a good laugh no matter how unique the plot may be. In addition, not everyone can relate to the life style or mannerism of "some" minorities. In my opinion, the writing as well as the acting was very good and I'd love to see more movies written and directed by DJ Pooh. In addition, it was nice to see Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg portray more than just menacing thug roles but roles that show a lighter, humorous and entertaining side. Too many Afro-Americans are typed cast in such sinister, thuggish roles and honestly, it's shameful. DJ Pooh did well to portray "some" (not all) lifestyles of Afro-Americans. Yes, "some" of the characters in this movie used illegal narcotics, but yet, he touched on a sense of some realism while adding humor. After viewing any movie, depending on the genre, I have to first consider if it could actually happen and if so what are the odds. In addition, I have to be able to relate to the characters and their plight. I weigh out what I would do myself as well as what would people that I know personally, would actually do in the same predicament. Could these events actually take place? Maybe, maybe not, but non-the less, I enjoyed Dee Loc acting unalarmed while sending a cowardly Sean up to the door to get their dates. Dee Loc displayed an unreal character when the police are at the door while he and his friends are breaking laws. I could go on, but I won't; just that it was a great hefty laugh and I appreciated it. I will end this message and say that DJ Pooh selected his characters very well and each scene was directed right on time. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Be Prepared To Laugh March 26, 2007
Written and directed by DJ Pooh - who also plays Slim - the comedy features Dr. Dre (Sean) and Snoop Dogg (Dee Loc) as friends who have had bad breaks and made some poor choices, but stumble upon one last opportunity to get things together under some very bizarre circumstances.

The cast is heavy into hip-hop, with Xzibit, Eminem, Kurupt and Truth Hurts having parts big & small. Other actors include Pauly Shore, Tommy Chong, Shaq and George Wallace (as car wash owner, Mr. Washington).

The action mostly takes place at a car wash in Los Angeles, with Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg being a surprisingly good comedic duo. And Eminem - as the fired assistant manager with major issues - is hilarious in his brief appearance.

It is a wacky plot with over-the-top scenes and actors who are obviously having a blast. The editing sometimes makes following the plot a bit choppy, but that criticism can be directed at many comedies. The Wash is good for a few laughs and does not take things too seriously.

I had to watch it a couple of times, but it's now one of my favorites. It's actually funny, especially DJ Pooh's character. I'd give it a chance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Movie March 12, 2002
The Wash is a very enjoyable movie. Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre both do great jobs in their roles. The movie also features great cameos from Eminem, Pauly Shore, Shaq, XZIBIT, and Ludacris. Also, the DVD comes with the movie's soundtrack for free so this DVD is an amazing deal, especially if you don't already own the soundtrack. So if you enjoy comedies like "Friday", this movie is a must own.
