Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A noisy, flashy, wicked kaleidoscope that mercilessly parodies the blaxploitation genre and Hollywood's miserable stereotypes of African-Americans.

Audience Reviews for Darktown Strutters (Get Down and Boogie)

While watching this I kept asking myself, "is this really a movie?". Unfortunately it is a movie. Who knows what the plot or storyline is, I had no idea, and there didn't seem to even be one. This movie is incredibly stupid.
