This comic spoof is spun off from a character that first appeared on The Chris Rock Show, and is written and directed by Louis C.K., one of that show's producers. Lance Crouther stars as Pootie Tang, a crime fighting superhero and recording artist who speaks in an unintelligible gibberish that seems to be a combination of Ebonics and street slang. Despite his communication problem, Pootie is a hero to children, whom he attempts to protect from the evil Dick Lecter (Robert Vaughn), a corporate fat cat out to corrupt America's youth with alcohol, tobacco, and junk food. Pootie also runs up against an artistic imitator (David Cross) and a sleazy recording executive (Andy Richter) Pootie Tang co-stars Chris Rock, Dave Attell, and Bob Costas and Conan O'Brien as themselves. ~ Karl Williams, All Movie Guide

Couldn't help but laugh by BVandemark March 28, 2003 - 6:04 PM PST

I couldn't ignore the fact that this film seemed to be constantly bordering on stupidity. And so when it kept making me laugh so hard that I could barely breathe I started to question my own stupidity. I think that there is a fine line that Chris Rock walks on here that makes the movie so hilarious. It reminded me of how I felt when I first saw the movie Airplane when it was fresh and nearly as stupid. This film has elements of classic slapstick humor that have been around for a long time but is well situated in the present time. Chris Rock creates some unique and hilarious parodies of modern film and music artists, some more or less obvious than others. If you like Chris Rock then you will really like this movie.

Over The Top & Out Of This World !!!
Just when you thought you've seen it all, here is something completly different. Movies that are off beat, over the top, or just plain "campy". Recomended for a Friday or Saturday night.
I loves me some movies!!
