Product Description

Wayans/Casey/James/Hayes/Brown ~ I'm Gonna Git You Sucka

Amazon.ca

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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!

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.

I'm Gonna Git You, Sucka.
I'm Gonna Git You, Sucka (Ivory Wayans, 1988) is an Ivory Way production that is written, directed and starring Keenen Ivory Wayans. Keenen is the eldest child of Hollywood family, the Wayans. The Wayans are much like the Arquettes and the Baldwins, with many members of the family having careers in the Cinema Industry. From l-r: Hammer, John Slade, Jack Spade, Slammer.
With a long list of acting, writing and directing projects behind him including being both the writer and director of blockbuster Scary Movie (Ivory Wayans, 2000), Keenen Ivory Wayans is currently enjoying a successful career of stardom.
I'm Gonna Git You, Sucka is the first in a series of Genre spoofs. The others are Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinkin' Your Juice In The Hood, a spoof of such films as Menace to Society (Hughes, 1993) and Boys in The Hood (Singleton, 1991), and Scary Movie, a parody of such films as Scream (Craven, 1996) and Halloween (Carpenter, 1978).
However, I'm Gonna Git You, Sucka is a spoof of the Blaxploitation genre of films. Blaxploitation is a term used for films that were made mainly during the 1970's and featuring either an all or mainly black cast. The heroes were super cool guys and gals that took no crap from the crooks, be they black or white. Examples of such films are Shaft (Parks, 1971)- Starring Richard Roundtree and Moses Gunn; Superfly (Parks, 1972)- Starring Ron O'Neal and Carl Lee; Foxy Brown (Hill, 1974)- Starring Pam Grier, Peter Brown and Terry Carter.
Blaxploitation was a very popular genre with the black population of North America as it came at a time of political and racial strife.
