Don't order this off the menu
I'm a fan of the real Roscoe's House of Chicken 'N Waffles and this movie really lays an egg. RHoCnW is a weak story about a NYC numbers runner who heads
to L.A. to rescue Roscoe and his restaurant. Numerous subplots without
motivation come and go throughout the movie. Bad jokes are made worse by
belaboring them instead of moving on to another scene. With some script
doctoring this might have been a decent small film. There are way too many
characters vying for attention in the film. The acting quality is erratic, though a few actors seem to have talent and make what they can of the roles. The actor playing Shaunte is not only hot, but she can act! I wouldn't mind seeing more of her in other roles.
