I’m Gonna Git You Sucka


imgonnagityousuckaWhen Jack Spadeā€™s (Keenen Ivory Wayans) brother dies from an overdose of gold chains, he takes on the gangsters of the city with help from a few veterans. In the director-starā€™s attempt to turn himself into another Mel Brooks, we get an enthusiastic but empty spoof of blaxploitation flicks with the expected sex, violence, tough guys and simpleminded gangster plots. Taking a cue from Airplane! (1980), we have Bernie Casey, Isaac Hayes and Jim Brown acting as if theyā€™re still in those old movies, and thatā€™s a good thing. But in the end this is too silly and the big laughs are simply not there.

1988-U.S. 87 min. Color.Ā Directed byĀ Keenen Ivory Wayans.Ā Cast:Ā Keenen Ivory Wayans (Jack Spade), Bernie Casey (John Slade), Antonio Fargas (Flyguy), Steve James, Isaac Hayes, Jim Brownā€¦ John Vernon, Damon Wayans, Chris Rock.Ā Cameo:Ā Robert Townsend.

Quote:Ā ā€œYes, we marched on the Federal building. Five hundred of us young brothers, full of outrage. They were hiring that day. The brothers came with guns; they left with jobs. Oh, yes, whitey is very tricky.ā€ (Clarence Williams III)
