Movie Reviews

911 Ain't a Joke!
Jeffery Mingo | Homewood, IL USA | 07/07/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"In this supposed comedy, a graduate student in film records the goings-on at County Hospital where his girlfriend works. The movie is a bit of a way to critique healt care provision in inner cities: shady workers, unethical doctors, incorrect operations, etc. Still, this movie had no plot, bad acting, bad timing, and lots of gross-out humor.

Okay, I'm ashamed that this is one of my first comments, but here it goes: the cover says it has nudity and it does not! There are sexual situations, but there is no clear view of male or female genitalia. Total false advertising!

I guess you could say the Caucasian characters here play the role of "straight guy." However, there is a way in which whites are portrayed as sane and Blacks as foolish. Maybe it's beneficial that Black actors and actresses get to perform the comedy in a comedy, but there was still something unsettling about this dynamic.

Like in many African-American films ("Sprung," "Foolish," "Coming to America," etc.), the light-skinned leading female gets to be portrayed as more worthy, loving, and virtuous than any of the dark-skinned Blacks. So offensive and stereotypical! The villain of the film is a man named Dr. Patel. Though Patel is a common Indian name, the character is monoracially Black and never once mentions being part Indian. Did the directors think a Black character won't be seen as bad if he has an Indian name? Did Indian actors refuse to play the role? Are the directors trying to say so many Indians are doctors that a hospital couldn't exist without a Patel on staff? Regardless, this appellation was odd and possibly insensitive to both Indians and Blacks.

I love seeing Black actors and actresses being able to work their craft. Nevertheless, this was a god-awful movie that was painful to watch and should have never been greenlighted in the first place."
This movie should of been put out
