Movie Reviews

Fat Albert and the Flintstones it ain't
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 07/02/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I remember when this was in the works, some civil rights folks out in LA were already talking about boycotting and banning this.

First of all, all that did (as it always does, will they ever learn?) was make people curious about it and check it out in droves on DVD (in the words of Rocky the Flying Squirrel, "But that trick NEVER works!").

In either case, this movie is so wild and over the top that it is IMPOSSIBLE to take seriously. This is a bizzare (and admittedly imaginative) cartoon of a lonely white suburban kid who finds a father figure in a pimp named "Fruit Juice" (voiced expertly by Bernie Mac). The Mac and a prostitute voiced by Little Kim (again, perfect casting) teach the boy about the Pimp game and about life in general.

There could be concerns that like "Soul Plane," this would be nothing but trashy stereotypes. Perhaps, but it's a guilty pleasure with some really charming and funny moments. (The scene where the kid takes the Pimp and Little Kim to school for "show and tell" is a SCREAM!). Yeah, one could go on and on about stereotypes, the morality of a story involving children and pimping, etc. but unlike "The Mack," "American Pimp," ad nauseum, this film does not take itself seriosuly and is clearly just a comedy.

Basically, leave your brains (and the kiddies) and all the analysis and sociology at the door for this one- get some of your buddies over for beer and pizza, and LAFF Your (posterior) OFF!

BTW-It would help this DVD if they added some of the original web "Lil Pimp" cartoons as extra features, as was the case with the "Undercover Brother" DVD."

"Think of South Park meets The Family Guy, then use the theme of Pimps up, hoe's down. LOL!"

"When I saw Lil' Pimp on the web back in 1998, I knew that the names Brooks and Dilstrap would one day be synomous with likes of Scorsese, Speilberg and Kubrick. See you next year Oscar!"

"I was skeptical at first when I saw the DVD cover, but I was more than pleasantly surprised when I sat through this divine comedy. The dialog was world class and the jokes delivered a one, two punch to my funny bone! What a hilarious concept!; a naive young innocent white kid connects with a group of pimps and saves the day! I was literally on the edge of my seat wondering how this movie was going to end. I know that audiences of all ages and tastes will identify with the main characters in this movie. It's an emotional roller coaster; I laughed, I cried, I was swept away. Kudos to the writer and the director for giving me 80 minutes of pure comedy bliss!!! Hey PIXAR!!, eat your heart out."
