| Why some like it, and some don't
This here is a film far more interesting and relevant than it knows itself to be.

As a piece of comedy cinema on its own, it's alright. It's very simplistic, almost overly simplistic, where there are the good guys on one side and the bad guys on the other. As in any film, sure, but it's particularly emphasized here, almost in the fashion of a cartoon. Good guy does good and stands up for justice, and on the other side the big bad guy, the bully.

The film is terribly stale and strangely uneventful to begin but kickstarts pretty fast.

There are some pretty funny characters here and there.

The answer to my title is very simple. The sub-cultural differences between the white and black communities in America. Not that only black people could like this film, but it is uninterruptedly and genuinely addressing the young black community, basically an anti-gangster propaganda. "Do the right thing", "be a man, the right way".

Along the way, some gags are funny enough, and the acting though no Oscar-worthy performances is very realistic, feels very 'real', an essential component to get to the young black mind, using a star rapper and a star comedian for more influence.

It's no masterpiece, but it holds up well enough. 6/10.
