    Throw-back

    I remember watching this movie when I was a kid. I thought it was great, and then I saw it twelve years later. It kind of sucks, not funny at all, very corney humor, and the plot is terrible, and the "Golden Lords" come on man, gimme a break. What topped it all was the way the meteor hits Robert Townsend's character! Instead of crashing to the groud like a normal meteor would, it chases him down an alley... ok... I'm sure this has happened a few times before. It's only every once in a while that a man coming home in the middle of the night gets chased down an alley by a meteor. This movie sucked.

    Old school comedy that still stands as a funny milestone

    The Meteor Man is a throwback to the old days of the post-Bill Cosby days. That's a tricky metaphore, so let me explain. Robert Townsend's movies tend to be the shuck and jive movies that ''hollywood'' likes and tends to view as entertaining, and thus got greenlighted. Although, most Townsend movies can be viewed as offending to the politically correct,they're still funny and Meteor Man is about as funny as they get. It's not as offensive as Hollywood Shuffle, and it demonstrates the methodic calculation of a director slowly snatching a position in hollywood ,as a black filmaker by the best means....through comedy. As for the movie itself....there are plenty of laughs for anyone who enjoyed the genre of I'm Gonna Get You Sucka and Carwash. But more importantly , it features an exceptional story line and is supported by an ensemble of fine established actors as well as rising ones. I believe this is a landmark film and even though some of it has cliche aspects, I recommend it. * Look for a small role featuring Oscar nominated actor,Don Cheadle.
