| This Sure Is Funky Fun Momma
A blaxploitation version of GET CARTER ! Maybe I should hate this movie and maybe I do , however it is a very entertaining film in a slightly offensive and highly patronizing way . Did you know director/screenwriter George Armitage is white ? It probably shows as Tyrone Tackett ( At least he`s not called Jefferson or Washington ) arrives at his brother`s funeral wearing a purple catsuit and a floppy hat ( ! ) . Oh and mourners at a black person`s funeral console the bereaved with lines like " Yo , your brother was a real funky dude " ( !! ) and all black people address each other as " Momma " " Cat " and " Bro " ( !!! ) , you really do get the impression that Mr Armitage has never met a black person in real life

Despite all this I wish to repeat this is a highly entertaining movie because of its extremely dated stereotypes and at no time did I feel myself comparing it to the original British gangster classic , unlike the recent Sly Stallone remake
