Comedy, Political
Writer/Director Spike Lee goes over the top in his latest racially charged and highly controversial satirical look at today's prejudiced culture. Damon Wayans stars as the nasally stuffed shirt who creates a TV variety show of caricatured African American stereotypes with the hopes of destroying these very stereotypes. Comedian Tommy Davidson and tap sensation Savion Glover play slumming street performers who help the dreamer with his crusade by portraying to the extreme every African American caricature. Though this film is overlty offensive, Spike Lee becomes the dreamer, himself, who succeeds in his crusade of providing a poignant and powerful wake-up call to our society.
Director: Spike Lee
Cast: Damon Wayans, Savion Glover, Jada Pinkett, Tommy Davidson, Michael Rapaport and Thomas Jefferson Byrd
