Critic Reviews for GhettoPhysics: Will the Real Pimps and Hos Please Stand Up!

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

The film's notion that an understanding that life on the street works much like it does in the corridors of the highest levels of politics, government, religion and the military has much merit, but GhettoPhysics undercuts its approach...

It's basically the stuff of a Bill Maher monologue, knocked down a few reading levels and spun into a low-budg gonzo smorgasbord of brashly tacky styles. Bleep became a cult hit, and so could this -- of the WTF?-camp variety.

It's all low budget and inventive, and mildly impressive if far too repetitive and ultimately fuzzy.

Top Critic

Unfortunately, the interviews are interspersed with a drama that clutters the message more than illuminates it.

Top Critic

A radically ingenious, in-your-face documentary hybrid that takes the basic street relationship between pimps and hookers and holds it up on a global scale.

What saves it from starry-eyed fuzziness and grounds it in sociopolitical reality is Brown's clear-sighted anger and the astute perceptions of talking heads including Cornel West, Ice-T and Norman Lear.

Audience Reviews for GhettoPhysics: Will the Real Pimps and Hos Please Stand Up!

"ghetophysics" the movie is incredible!!! We are!, the change in this
world.... its something we should all stop and think about...
Change - What's Change? something By Mary Perrin,
"When you hear the word "change," what comes to mind? You may think about changing your clothes, changing a light bulb, or how a chameleon can change its skin color. Your skin color doesn't change like a chameleon's, but you do change.You may even decide to change your favorite color from orange to green. The word change simply means to turn something you know into something new or different." just like how this film did... change is what we need in this world.....
