Don't Be a Menace in South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood | 1996 | R | - 5.5.10

The Wayans siblings -- Keenen Ivory, Shawn, Marlon, Craig and Kim -- turn their attention to urban dramas in this spoof of such films as "Boyz 'N the Hood" and "Higher Learning." Also with Tracey Cherelle Jones, Chris Spencer, Suli McCullough, Darrell Heath, Helen Martin, Isaiah Barnes, Lahmard Tate, Vivica Fox and Keith Morris. [1:29]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Sexual innuendo and passionate kissing scenes with fondling. In a sex scene played for laughs, we see kissing, fondling and glimpses of breasts and buttocks as the couple spoof a scene from "9 1/2 Weeks" (they pour food items all over each other and lick and kiss them off).

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Mainly played for laughs. Some drive-by shootings and gang wars with guns and other weapons. We see an armed robbery, chases on foot and in cars, speedy getaways, threatening with guns and a few shootings (with some blood). Some fights with punches and kicks (again, with some blood).

LANGUAGE 10 - 50+ F-words, many scatological references, many mild obscenities and some anatomical references and racial epithets.

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.
