Keenan Ivory Wayans offers his fan base probably the only funny film he's ever directed.
Lesli Goff
Empire Magazine
February 5, 2008
Unrelenting, unremitting, a brilliant broad-brush of a parody.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

TV Guide's Movie Guide
February 5, 2008
In offering up this affectionate parody of the old movies, Wayans also turns a satiric eye on black culture in general -- but in an inoffensive, lighthearted manner.

In many respects this is a black counterpart to The Naked Gun, and very nearly as funny; the bounty of antimacho gags is both unexpected and refreshing.

The greatest pleasure comes from seeing '70s veterans send themselves up.

You'll need to visit a doctor after it....to put back together your split-sides!

I'm Gonna Git You Sucka is a lively but uncertain mixture of nostalgia, silliness and genuinely unpredictable humor.

There's something ungrateful going on under the surface
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Probably an hour's worth of funny in a 90-minute movie.
| Original Score: 3/5
Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
August 21, 2003
The idea is swamped by the execution.
| Original Score: 3/5

Since we are dealing with parody here, every aspect of black communities is open territory for Wayans' brand of humour.

Chicago Sun-Times
January 1, 2000
Although, like all good satires, it is cheerfully willing to be offensive, it is almost completely incapable of being funny.

Wayans' choosing to play romantic lead seems more narcissistic than smartly comic (watch him unleash those built biceps once too often); he lacks an unidentifiable shtick.

It's not that Wayans lacks wit, it's that he's stomped it to death.

No way, brother.
Dragan Antulov

A tribute to blaxploitation phenomenon.
