This is a rush job in the worst way
Pressureworld | Atlanta, GA | 07/11/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Trust me when I tell you this is one of the worst documentaries I have ever seen. Ron was a young pimp from California who had a large stable of woman and some success during the 80's. What could have made this documentary something special is the interesting selling point of Ron's three sons, and the so called MCA scandal. They were a singing group called the Newtrons(Ron Newt spelled backwards)and up and comming R&B group created by there father. They began to have a large following locally, appearing at the Jackson Ranch and even on Soul Train. How was Ron Newt a pimp with very little education able to sucessfully put this together? How was he able to negotiate a multimillion doller deal with MCA? What were the origin's of the scandal? The Newtrons were about to take off like a rocketship into superstardom but instead crashed and burned. This should have been the focus of the film instead the documentary glosses over The Newtrons the main point of interest, in favor of 50 minuites of Ron and his friends talking over and over about how great they are. How much money they made, who was the greatest pimp and other nonsense. This sadly becomes both repetitive and pedestrian. These grown men, (Ron included) many in there 40's and 50's began to look like caricature's and clowns. This is a rush job that could have been great but instead it just comes off as lazy feeble attempt to pimp the public."
