Product Description


From Keenan Ivory Wayans, the man who brought us Jim Carrey (initially just one of the bunch on Wayans's television comedy-sketch show, In Living Color), comes I'm Gonna Git You Sucka (1988), a comedy spoof on the blaxploitation films of the 1970s. Wayans plays Jack Spade, an army private just returning from the service. He comes home to find his younger brother June Bug dead of a overdose of gold chains (an "O.G.") He vows revenge, and with the help of some of the neighborhood's old school heroes including Flyguy (Antonio Fargas), Kung Fu Joe (Steve James), Hammer (Isaac Hayes), Slammer (football star Jim Brown), and John Slade (Bernie Casey), Spade wages a war against Mr. Big, the neighborhood crime lord.

In the tradition of Airplane! and Naked Gun, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka pokes fun through satire and offensive comedy. The film also features some of the players that would end up on In Living Color and has appearances from such varied actors as Clarence Williams III, Eve Plumb (better known to most as Jan Brady), and Chris Rock as a rib-joint customer. --Shannon Gee

4.0 out of 5 stars bwahaha much better than expected Oct. 14 2011
By Corpse
yeah im definatly suprised that this movie is not nearly as popular as it should be. it falls right in beautifully with other slapstick comedies from its time such as airplane, hot shots, and anything with leslie nielsen in it. Its just as funny as any as those as well so im more than surprised at the lack of attention it has recieved. i never even heard of it untill i seen it in a bargain bin and made the smart choice to pick it up. its loaded with hillarious(mainly black) comedians and actors and lots of great jokes and gags. it even has the young chris rock in it for a brief cameo that happens to be one of the funniest scenes in the movie. Its definatly recommendable to anyone with a sense of humor and probably even funnier to those with even a brief background on blaxploitation cinema.

5.0 out of 5 stars SHE'S THE DIRECTOR'S SISTER June 15 2004
I'M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA is one hilarious film; even though many of the jokes fall flat at times, the whole is superlative tongue in cheek satire. A broad humored satire of those wonderful 70's "black exploitation" films, Wayans and crew serve up scene after scene of hilarity. For instance: a sleazy girl is singing a sultry version of "When the Saints Come Marching In," and when Wayans asks who she is, the waitress says "She's the director's sister." (She is!). When ex-football star Jim Brown asks Wayans why he thinks he's qualified to be a black hero, Wayans tells him "I'm an ex football player." When Dawnn Lewis as Wayans' sweetie gets the cramps, she really gets cranky!! John Vernon as Mr. Big spouts off why shouldn't he be in a black exploitation movie, other actors have! There are so many scenes like this that one can't help but laugh and laugh again.
Featuring a cavalcade of black and white actors, including Clarence Williams III, Isaac Hayes, Ja'net Dubois, Antonio Fargas and Steve James, I'M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA is a hoot to watch!

3.0 out of 5 stars I love Blaxploitation...but this was ok Nov. 28 2003
This film does have some very funny moments like the rib joke but I felt a wee bit let down that the script and story line was not as good as it could have been. It nice to see the old boys back (Hayes,Brown etc...) but where were Pam Grier, Fred Williamson and Richard Roundtree !!....now that would have been excellent. I love Blaxploitation but I wish this was better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Stuff from the Wayans Kids!! Oct. 20 2003
By SeaWasp
Very, very funny! Much funnier than I remember it first time around. Put all of that politically correct nonsense on hold and have a ball with Issac Hayes, Bernie Casey and Jim Brown as they lampoon their tough, '70s black action hero personas. Some of the comedy borders on cartoonish (like Jim Brown's throbbing big toe) and there are a couple of in-jokes for those in the know. I don't see how these wonderful black actors kept a straight face doing this movie, but Bernie Casey nearly loses it at one time. Watch his face as he tells Keenen Ivory Wayans:"That's my theme music. Every black hero should have some!" He nearly laughs. It's contagious. Also great is the bit where Jack Slade (Wayans) picks up the gorgeous chick in the bar and takes her to his room. Watch what happens after Mr "12 Inches" makes his confession. Also Antonio Fargas is priceless as he recites a poem at the "Pimp-Of-The-Year" awards and check out the hats worn in John "Mr. Big" Vernon's bar. The dvd looks great in wide screen. I would have loved a commentary from the guys involved. Still, highly recommended... especially for blaxploitation nuts with a sense of humor.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA! July 10 2001
I'M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA! is a spoof an blaxploitation films of the 1970's. This is the first film written, directed by, and starring Keenen Ivory Wayans. Jack Spade is an Army secretary who returns home to find out that his brother has died of an O.G. (an overdose of gold chains). Jack gathers up an army of some local neighborhood hero's (Bernie Casey, Antonio Fargas, Steve James, Isaac Hayes, and Jim Brown) to help him fight and defeat Mr. Big, the crime lord responsible for his brother's death. This movie has many funny moments, especially one that has Chris Rock making an appearance as a rib joint customer. This is a film for both action and comedy fans! Keenen Ivory Wayans would go on to direct SCARY MOVIE and SCARY MOVIE 2!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Parody! May 30 2001
"I'm Gonna Git You Sucka!", the first and best Wayans film, is a wonderful mix of 70's blaxploitation, honesty, and pure camp. It is difficult to conceive of the number of jokes used in this film, from the skinny white, mustached stuntman filling in for a middle aged black woman to Chris Rock's craving for "a rib". The social commentary by Keenen Ivory Wayans far outdoes his later films, but the performances here really shine. A truly spectacular comedy.
