Editorial Reviews

Welome to Iowa, where the corn grows tall, the kids hang at the mall and homegrown white boy Flip Dogg raps, 'Whassup with that?' Flip's struggle to keep it real in his boring Midwestern 'hood ultimately takes him and his crew on a road trip to the projects of Chicago, where he discovers it ain't all good when he disses some reallife gangstas! This fresh, in-your-face comedy features rap legends including Snoop Dogg, Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick.

This movie is an excellent take on the ignorance of white farm kids who want to be black, wanna be thugs, and gangsta rappers. As an indie flick, the film lacks some of the sharpness one might expect but here it works in the film's favor. There is a sense of reality there, Flip just doesn't live in that reality. He wears an Iowa Hawkeye, Tim Dwight's in fact, football jersey, lives on a farm in Iowa, and is totally attracted to the bling and light of the rap game. As ridiculous as this seems to those outside of the midwest, this is more common than one might think.

I'm from Iowa, and in fact, this film was shot on location in and around my hometown of Davenport, Iowa, and the Quad Cities. I knew people like Flip and their struggle for acceptance and identity. Quite a few of my friends were in the film as minor characters and extras, and my ex-mayor was the curly headed police officer. There are lots of external shots of the Quad City area, Davenport's riverfront, Muscatine, and a shot of a close friend's award winning grafitti in Davenport that was in the Cabrini Green sequence (Nelly posed in front of a mural he did in a St. Louis graf competition for his first album and is on the inner sleeve). The reality is that Flip's farm neighborhood is on the outskirts of the Davenport area, which is one of the largest cities in Iowa and has it's own urban culture, like many smaller cities in America.

Being from there brings this film in perspective as a search for culture and acceptance. As a teacher and coach, and an ex-Iowan, I knew people who yearned for something new while others went along with this type of charade until they realized how ridiculous it is to act black.

Flip Dogg and his 2 homeys from the not so mean streets of Iowa love rap music, and the "black" culture of hip hop. Despite being from Iowa, they attempt to "keep it real", and Flip Dogg rejects his given lifestyle of famers and rednecks (in his words). He has a pretty girlfriend that he manages to knock up. His girlfriend realizes that when the baby is born, Flip Dogg will be simply JUST the baby's daddy---nothing more, certainly not a father.
Khalid is one of the few black people in Flip Dogg's Iowa hometown. Flip lovingly calls him his "homey" (well, something else, actually that starts with an 'N', but Khalid does not appreciate that). Flip thinks because Flip is negro, he has connections to the 'hood and is totally ghetto, so he asks him to accompany him and his crew to Chicago's Cabrini Greene (Chicago's Harlem). "Despite" Khalid being black, he lives an upper middle class life, with educated parents, and Khalid is college bound himself. Flip does not seem to get it. His parents disapprove of his lifestyle as well.
This movie has a profound message----the true black inner city ghetto lifestyle is not to be glamourized, and it is certainly not the image you may think it is (thanks to MTV). While I appreciate Flip's desire to get out of Iowa and make something better of his life, the means he does to achieve a better life is the wrong way.
There are some extremely humorous jokes and situations (a lot at the expense of the cornfield state of Iowa). The one that sticks out in my mind is when Flip-Dogg says that he is really black, he has a tiny brown spot on his skin, and says the rest of him is a birthmark.
Cameos abound in this movie from the rap world---Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Fat Joe and others make appearances.

Today is December tha 12th of the year 2000 and I just went to the mall to buy "Scary Movie" but they only had it for rent and I don't rent movies so I decided to buy something else cuz I wasn't gonna go all the way to the mall and come back home empty handed. So I stayed in the comedy section cuz I love Comedy and I ran across this movie entitled "Whiteboyz." At first, I thought it was like another boring movie I didn't wanna waste my money on but I picked it up and read the back of the box which was quite interesting (plus it had Snoop Dogg's name on the front of the box which made me pick it up even quicker). To make a long story short, I bought the movie and took it home, popped it into the VCR and watched it for the first time. Sometimes, it takes me two times to watch a movie to understand it but it only took me one time to watch this movie and I must say, I was one of the funniest movies I've seen this year. I suggest, if you haven't seen this movie before, you have to see it and I guarentee (spell-check that you college students)you want be disappointed! TRUST ME, it's a Great Movie!

There are certain phases every one goes through in regards to their race. For whites it starts with a denial that racism exists, then moves to a realization that inequalities exist between whites and other races, especially blacks. At this point most whites recede to their previous viewpoints and identify with whites even more strongly in order to deal with the negative emotions that facing these unpleasant facts evokes. There are more stages but that is all we need for this movie. The film is a study of what happens when, instead of identifying with their own culture, someone identifies with the oppressed culture. Flip is not aping the black culture because it is the cool thing to do. He is doing it to deal with the guilt thrust upon him from the actions of his ancestors. It is all in the monologue at the end. Overall a great movie. Funny and thought provoking.
