Quotes

Robert Townsend: It brought to an end the black-exploitation movies of the '70s. After the studio saw that one film, they said "We're not making another." I just remember, a lot of the people in Hollywood were really upset. You know? Normally somebody says "You're not gonna work in this town again," and with Jackie a lot of people said "You'll not work in this *country* again."

Like an All-You-Can-Spoof Buffet!
6 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

I laughed throughout, except for the icky-sweet ending. I guess they decided to spoof everybody so that no ONE person could say it was about them. Although it was more of a Diana Ross/Pam Grier roast, they picked on everyone, and it was great! The cameo interviews were wonderful -- Penny Marshall, Don Cornelius, Dolly Parton, Diane Carroll, Howie Mandel, Liza Minelli, and that's just the beginning.

Tim Curry and Jenifer Lewis held the story together nicely around the numerous snippets and provided many comedic moments themselves. It is definitely worth your $1 at the video store, or better yet ... tape it next time it appears on Lifetime!
