I really enjoyed this movie. It's a hilarious spoof of gangsta movies and gangsta rap. Keenan Ivory Wayans' cameos were hilarious. Shawn and Marlon make a great comedy team. It's just too bad they don't get more exposure (they're TV show on WB is hilarious, too). It's all tongue in cheek fun pointed at the harsher looks at inner city life that we get from movies and music.
If you're one of those people that hates movies like Naked Gun, Airplane, and Spaceballs, this movie is definitely not for you. Otherwise, pick it up and try not to fall off the couch :)
To say, `Don't Be A Menace...' is a comedy classic is quiet the understatement. All the characters in this movie provide laugh after laugh. It's the practice run for Wayans movies to be made years later on. `Scary Movie 1 & 2' clearly have borrowed the mold from `Don't Be A Menace...' More films should be as funny as this one. Marlon's character `Loc Dog' certainly squares up to `Smokey' from the `Friday' anyday. Marlon's dialogue/appearance is cleverly written to poke fun at the stereotypical male you've seen in any John Singleton film. The cast is strong, good comedic performances come from the Wayans brothers (although, Marlon is the much better of the two), Suli McCullough, and Lahmard J. Tate, playing Ashtray's father, the second funniest character in this movie. The script is almost faultless in its field, and the jokes come quick and they don't let up until the end. This all helps to make this an addictive comedy classic. This truly is TOTALLY GHETTO FABULOUS!
Truth be told: This is a hilarious movie. Between the Korean store shootings, Keenon Ivory Wayans as the mailman yelling "MESSAGE!" in more than one occasion, and Crazy Legs' dream of being a dancer, you'll laugh your butt off. This movie doesn't have a plot...which is better in some cases and not in others. The only thing you won't like about the movie is that it had a very low budget (it cost more to do the VHS box art), and that the movie is very dark and Loc Dog's voice..... at least that scared me.
Overall, Don't Be a Menace is a hilarious movie. Believe it or not, it's better than "Scary Movie". It sucks as an actual movie, but not as a fan just looking for a good laugh.

If you have seen Boyz n the Hood, Menace to Society, and Poetic Justice, you will appreciate this movie. With humor similar to the Friday series, this movie is hilarious.Published 4 months ago by Mcc1123
