Swirl together a pious message movie, a silly high-school yuck-fest and a raunchy, booty-shaking comedy, and this picture is the infelicitous result. Slacker G (Deon Richmond) is dying to get with studious beauty Cinny (Maria Campbell), but she's focused on her
college plans. G is so smitten that he starts churning out college applications in hopes of impressing her, which delights his parents but gives his homies Fish (Guy Torry) and June (Donald Adeosun Faison) endless opportunities to mock him. And then there's the pressure of the prom: Class joker Fish can't get a date, lothario June has too many and G is competing with Cinny's stuck-up, college-bound boyfriend. Plot complications include June's work for local thug Kenyatta (Stoney Jackson), the spiteful machinations of Cinny's sassy cousin Anetta (Countess Vaughn), June's lady troubles and the motivational stylings of Mr. Shapic (Michael Warren), an English teacher so cool that his prom date is Naomi Campbell (in a cameo as her supermodelish self). But the movie's raison d'etre is G's raucous daydreams: Breakfast chitchat stops dead when G, caught up in a fantasy involving a scantily dressed young lady, starts
tonguing his fried eggs. Other fantasies cast G as a stone-cold Terminator, a
big man on campus who gets to humiliate unctuous rich boys, a spoken word
artist who gets all the babes, and the like vengeance and half-naked
girls are the common denominators. Considering how crude and vulgar these
fantasy sequences are, the movie is otherwise surprisingly sweet-natured, but
not especially clever or engaging.
