Product Description

The complete first season of Jamie Kennedy's Blowin Up.

Amazon.com

A reality series in the loosest sense of the genre, Jamie Kennedy's Blowin' Up delves into the world of hip-hop by way of comedy. It's not a bad effort either. The MTV series is equal parts ad-libbed and scripted, but the actors on the show are so good that you'd swear they were just a couple of clueless knuckleheads trying to become rap stars. Kennedy (Scream, Three Kings, Son of the Mask) is no novice when it comes to comedy, having hosted and performed in The Jamie Kennedy Experiment--which was a cross between Punk'd and Candid Camera. Here, viewers follow Kennedy and his sidekick Stu Stone as they try to land a recording contract, deal with a demanding Bob Saget, and hobnob with real rap stars such as Paul Wall, Snoop Dogg, and Ice-T. This isn't the first time Kennedy has tackled music. In 2003's Malibu's Most Wanted, he resurrected one of his popular characters, B-Rad Gluckman, a rich Malibu kid who wants to make it in the rap world. Here, his role is funnier because he's playing a less capable version of himself. Just seven episodes long, the set includes quite a few fun special features, the best of which may be the surprisingly good "Rollin' with Saget" music video. If this were a real reality series, with Kennedy actually trying to become a rapper, it would be an uncomfortably embarrassing addition to his resume. But as a comedic piece of work, Blowin' Up gets the job done. --Jae-Ha Kim

A scripted reality show which is a little too notciable at times but is actually worth the watch. Being a fan of the music Jamie Kennedy does I enjoyed when they would take a break from the show and just drive around listening to their music in the hummer. The show itself has plenty of celebrity cameos (ice t, jason biggs, bob sagget) none of which ever is less than hilarious.
Also the chemistry between Stu and Jamie is wonderful, altho Stu's constant bitterness torwards the fact that Jamie isn't focusing on just rapping but also on acting that pays for both of their lives does get quite annoying by episode 3. Stu just begins to come off as ungratefull for everything Jamie's money has got them cause in the show Stu is the jobless friend that lets Jamie pay for everything.
The extras are great and the only thing that's dissapointing about the release is that the show only lasted 7 episodes. Worth the time to check it out tho, bought it on amazon used and the price was well worth the laughs.

Jamie Kennedy's success in stand-up comedy, TV and movies will have viewers wondering how real the hip-hop career of white-bread Kennedy and Jewish sidekick Stu Stone is in the reality TV show "Blowin' Up." Especially since Kennedy lovingly spoofed a white rapper in Malibu's Most Wanted. After watching an episode or two of the seven-epi season on this set, viewers will learn the music is legitimate, the duo's ambition is strong, and the show is partly fiction and partly fact. The fact that "Blowin' Up" isn't 100% real is a gift to viewers. It's better that the stars be in on the joke, too, when it comes to reality TV.

Kennedy and Stone run from East Coast to West Coast to South Coast (Florida) to get advice from rappers, producers, stars and agents, while simultaneously trying to get a record deal. Kennedy plays his perhaps real-life unassertive persona against his aggressive, beat-making, mooching partner Stone, whom Kennedy calls a Chihuahua in one scene because of his tendency to yap without end. Many of their trials and tribulations are clearly staged, as are most of the cameo conflicts.

Fans of Kennedy will adore this, as it highlights Kennedy's natural, laid-back charm in the face of rapping greatness and his hilarious annoyance at getting a contract, getting credibility, and getting his sidekick out of his face once in a while.

Of course, the show is a bit of a commercial for Kennedy and Stone's album. At their best, they rap furiously and hilariously on the level of The Bloodhound Gang on top of beats that even impress rap legends Rza, Ice T and Method Man during the show. I liked the goofy tunes so much, I bought a copy here.

DVD Extras: Serious fans get commentary from the producer, Kennedy and Stone on all seven episodes.
