American PimpDirector: Albert Hughes, Allen Hughes
American Pimp slinks onto DVD in a widescreen anamorphic format (1.85:1 non-theatrical aspect ratio) and the following rather limited and clearly non-digitized or remastered sound/audio track options: English (Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo) and Spanish (Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo), with English and Spanish subtitles and closed captioning also available. Picture quality is grainy throughout, with so-so coloring, and a lack of detail and sharpness. Sound quality is also minimal, with the music in stereo and all the dialog in mono throughout the film. There are no special or bonus features of any kind.

Tha Huaghs Brothers aint no joke. Thiz waz a bad a** flick. I own it on DVD. I never get tired of watchin' it. No actorz, no script. Just real life pimpz talkin' about real life pimp s**t. Tha Huaghs Brothers did a hell of a job. They xxxplore tha pimp lifestyle and follow tha upz and downz of tha profession. Thiz waz by far tha best documentery I have ever seen. It did'nt xploit tha pimp lifestyle like tha movie Pimps Up Ho's Down did. A must have.
This film was very enlightening, to say the least. It shows the underworld of pimping and hoing at it's best and worst. The MEN in this film are brutaly honest about their profession, and so are the women. If you are like me, and are fascinated by people who live on the edge, take this vicarious ride thru ''the life''. The Hughes brothers must be commended on their ability to get these people to open up and talk about their lives. The language is quite uncouth, but the people are telling you the truth as they see it. Everyone knows that the main part of the game is talking, rapping per se, and when you run out of words, the game ends.
When you turn on a camera you get actors even when they tell it like it is.
Reveals "tha life" of a pimp and his "bitches," not to be sexist, but that's how they talk and that's what this tremendously honest and disturbing DVD has to show. All the pimps are very loquacious and manipulative and charming to say the least. The one criticism I have is that they didn't have enough of the prostitute's voice.
keep your wallet in your pocket. This stinks.
