Anyone ever seen this movie? I'd post the trailer on here, but couldn't find it on YouTube. There's a ton of clips from the movie available there, in fact, I think the whole movie's available. I'd post some, but there's far too many with explicit racist type content.

I had heard about this film for quite some time, but never got around to actually seeing it till a few days ago it randomly came out on one of the movie channels and I saw it, though I only got to see the second half.

By the way, on a lighter note, Tyra Banks was FINE in this movie, right in her prime.

Loved this movie, have it. Saw this before I went college so it tripped me out for day but its a good movie. Busta Rhymes is a fool and the sex scene with Tyra is sexy

This a movie that did not age well at all. I remember it being so badass when I was a kid. Then I caught it again like 3 months ago and was pretty much laughing most of the movie. In hindsight, poor acting (even for the Shakespearean Busta Rhymes).
"I saw a lady on T.V. She was born without arms. Literally, she was born with her hands attached to her shoulders... and that was sad, but then they said, "Lola does not know the meaning of the word 'can't.'" And that to me was kinda worse... in a way... ya know? Not only does she not have arms, but she doesn't understand simple contractions. It's very simple Lola, you just take two words, you put them together, then you take out the middle letters, you put a comma in there and you raise it up!" -Mitch Hedberg
