CB4 | 1993 | R | - 6.3.9

Chris Rock stars as the leader of a rap band, in this parody of what it really takes to make it as a rapper. The band's lyrics and actions are an exaggerated version of controversial rap groups like NWA.

SEX/NUDITY 6 - There are two explicit sex scenes in which we clearly see a topless woman, as well as flashes of the rest of her unclothed body. One scene shows characters licking various parts of their partner's body (oral sex is suggested). During a rendition of the band's hit song, brown balloons symbolizing a part of the male anatomy, fall from the ceiling.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - There's a brief car chase, accompanied by gun fire between the two cars. Two fist fights (without blood) and one character has a heart attack and dies when he's threatened with a gun. At the dead man's open casket funeral, a man punches his corpse.

LANGUAGE 9 - Every profanity imaginable is here: at least 30 utterances of the F-word, plus assorted anatomical references, scatological language and insults. The issue of dirty song lyrics is one of the film's themes.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Pre-marital sex, drug-dealing, women treated as sex-objects.

MESSAGE - Be yourself; don't hide behind a facade.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
