Awesomely Funny Comedy About Race
Emmy Towne (Bridget Devlin Burke) brings her new boyfriend Darryl (Demetrius Parker) home for Boxing Day (the day after Christmas). She forgot to warn them in advance, though: Daryl is black.
The plot of this film is good, but it's the jokes that make it fantastic. I found out about the racist scale (Hitler is 100, the KKK are 75, Don Imus is 20, not locking your doors in a black neighborhood because you think it's racist is 2). There are also great pop culture jokes: especially regarding Dawson's Creek, with a long spiel about the final episode, the lack of God, Joey's choices, and the failure of soulmates to connect.
I found out that a columnist is a journalist not bound by ethics, and that dating "Lenny Kravitz black" is wussy, but "Wesley Snipes black" is progressive.
I'm not really keen on how the philosophy major (Jenna St. John) is presented... somewhere between existentialist and hedonist, very amorphous. Very sexy outfit and makeup, though.
Oh, and the news report on Richard "Big Dick" Towne, the creator of powernesium and toilet paper thief, hilarious, "lot of gay sex, I started to enjoy it"...
