"The Wash" Review
Crazy Jim | Massachusetts | 06/24/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

""Friday" co-writer DJ Pooh tries for another run at the urban buddy comedy concept with superstar rap duo, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg playing roomates who go from the closest of buds to being at odds when Dre gets a supervising job at the car wash where Snoop works. Despite a pretty solid supporting cast including George Wallace, Tommy "Tiny" Lister, Lamont Bentley, and Alex Thomas, this one is all over the place. Dre and Snoop's musical chemistry doesn't seem to translate too well into the cinematic world. Both seemed more comfortable in the bit parts they played in "Training Day" than they do trying to be the stars of their own feature. Pooh the writer seems content with sticking to the same tired drug humor and fart jokes while Pooh the director uses big-name rapper cameos to cover up these faults. The film is so stuffed with silly gags in fact that the movie's biggest conflict is pushed to the closing 20 minutes, leaving the audience with the impression that it probably isn't that important. "The Wash" has a few fleeting moments of humor including Kurupt as a neighborhood punk who interrogates Dre at gunpoint, Pooh as one of the bumbling kidnappers, and Eminem as a disgruntled former employee of the car wash. In the end though, it feels more like an R-rated episode of "Keenen & Kel" than a comedic gem like "Friday". While I was probably anticipating this movie more than anyone, it makes for a better rental than a purchase."

"Snoop had some funny lines but overall this film is at best a direct to Video type of film.this film in no way should be compared to Car Wash at all it ain't even close.this film is surrounded with a 2ns tier cast of Comedians overall to me.I dig George Wallace He had some moments.Eminem did nothing for this clunker.Dr.Dre has no Screen Pressence He tries to hard.Music is His Strength not Making Film."

"this is a film with snoop n dre. the story and dialogue is mostly poor but the funnier moments r worth watching again. my advice is get richard pryors car wash which is better and is the basis of this flick

"I borrowed the movie The Wash on DVD and I enjoyed it so much, that I went out and purchased a copy for my own collection. I've read the reviews for The Wash and was fairly surprised by the comments. However, I had to consider that not everyone loves a good laugh no matter how unique the plot may be. In addition, not everyone can relate to the life style or mannerism of "some" minorities. In my opinion, the writing as well as the acting was very good and I'd love to see more movies written and directed by DJ Pooh. In addition, it was nice to see Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg portray more than just menacing thug roles but roles that show a lighter, humorous and entertaining side. Too many Afro-Americans are typed cast in such sinister, thuggish roles and honestly, it's shameful. DJ Pooh did well to portray "some" (not all) lifestyles of Afro-Americans. Yes, "some" of the characters in this movie used illegal narcotics, but yet, he touched on a sense of some realism while adding humor. After viewing any movie, depending on the genre, I have to first consider if it could actually happen and if so what are the odds. In addition, I have to be able to relate to the characters and their plight. I weigh out what I would do myself as well as what would people that I know personally, would actually do in the same predicament. Could these events actually take place? Maybe, maybe not, but non-the less, I enjoyed Dee Loc acting unalarmed while sending a cowardly Sean up to the door to get their dates. Dee Loc displayed an unreal character when the police are at the door while he and his friends are breaking laws. I could go on, but I won't; just that it was a great hefty laugh and I appreciated it. I will end this message and say that DJ Pooh selected his characters very well and each scene was directed right on time. So, if Mr. Pooh ever reads these, let him know that there are some true fans out here and that he should look at Shades of Bright Pale. Though not too comedic, it is a must see. Thank you.
