User Review

The Mother of All Party Movies!!!!!!

Rating: 10/10


If you want to have a party in your mind, where just drift far far
away. Than look no further, because writer/director Reginald Hudlin has
made not only one of the best Afro-Americans based film. But also one
of the most copied haircuts in recent history.

Play(Christopher Martin) is having this banging HOUSE PARTY with buddy
Bilal(Martin Lawrence) DJing. But their best friend Kid(Christopher
Reid) can't go because he's Pops(Robin Harris in a terrific
performance) grounded him. So he sneaks out to join the party, but face
neighborhood bullies(Full Force) and the fact that two girls(Tisha
Campbell & A.J. Johnson) like him and wants him to choose between them.

The dance scenes are amazing and the songs are still hype. The acting
is great, especially by the late Robin Harris, who will have you
laughing at every scene he's in. And George Clinton's cameo is
absolutely funny as hell. So enjoy the movie that gave birth to HOW
HIGH, SOUL PLANE, and of course CLASS ACT in some ways.
