Pootie Tang

This comic spoof is spun off from a character that first appeared on The Chris Rock Show, and is written and directed by Louis C.K., one of that show's producers. Lance Crouther stars as Pootie Tang, a crime fighting superhero and recording artist who speaks in an unintelligible gibberish that seems to be a combination of Ebonics and street slang. Despite his communication problem, Pootie is a hero to children, whom he attempts to protect from the evil Dick Lecter (Robert Vaughn), a corporate fat cat out to corrupt America's youth with alcohol, tobacco, and junk food. Pootie also runs up against an artistic imitator (David Cross) and a sleazy recording executive (Andy Richter) Pootie Tang co-stars Chris Rock, Dave Attell, and Bob Costas and Conan O'Brien as themselves.

This movie is great for young and old. My mother and I love it. My sister in-law as well. She is very uppity, you know the type, and she even laughed. I do not like to watch movies over again unless it has been awhile, but this one is an exception.

if Austin Powers was born in the ghetto in the 70's at the height of the blacksploitation era, he would be Pootie Tang. i started following his character from the Chris Rock Show and found him to be great (even though most of the people i I'd see it with, just could'n get it, which by the way made it twice more hilarious). This guy fights crime, sings, and has a reputation with the ladies, all without the benifit of intelligible communication skills. enough said. if you liked Austin Powers, dug The Superfly Era and don't wanna watch a movie you have to take too seriously, Pootie Will Sign His Bittie On Yo Runnie Kine!

"Pootie Tang" is the ultimate guilty pleasure film. Sometimes I ask myself, "Why do I laugh at this?" I don't know why, but it’s crazy. Chris Rock has done well on this movie. I don't know how you come up with a story about a funny talking super hero. Throughout the whole movie, this guy is saying a thing that doesn’t make any sense, but the characters surrounding him all understand. How do you come up something like that?!? And put it into a feature film!!! One liners like "sa da tay" and "sine your pity on the runny kine", are classics. Forget the fact that the movie is silly and extremely basic in plot, the story of this modern-day inner-city African-American untouchable super hero is funny, and on a elementary level, it even gets some socio-political digs in too. The movie is only 70 minutes long, but it manages to take shots at corporate America, some black stereotypes, and society's habit of unrestrained hero worship. I was tempted to label the movie "dumb", but given these little angles, it's obvious that there was some cleverness at work behind the scenes. "Pootie Tang" was conceived on the HBO hit The Chris Rock Show, in this spin off movie, Pootie is trying to take all the junk food, drugs and alcohol off the street that is being distributed by Dick Lecter (Robert Vaughn). The supporting cast includes The Chris Rock Show regular Wanda Sykes. Missy Elliot also does a cameo in this as well. "Pootie Tang" seems like a send up to 70's blaxpoitation films, but at the same time, I don't know what it is. "Pootie Tang" is a mixed bag of funk music, cheesy action and comedy. It all works for "Pootie Tang" making it the most unusual film ever made. If the idea of a character that combines the talents of Buckwheat, Austin Powers, and Shaft appeals to you, then you will find something to like about "Pootie Tang".

I absolutely LOVE this movie. I am a middle class white girl and I totally GOT this movie, Chirs Rock is a master of comedy and the guy who plays Pootie Tang is just so hillarious! I don't know how they kept a straight face through the movie! It is definitely a cult classic. I can watch it over and over.
