Pootie Tang is quite possibly one of the dumbest movies I've ever seen. I'm talking dumb as a bowl of mice dumb and I laughed my ass off at this movie. I would've loved to see a raunchier R-rated version but watching Wanda Sykes dance (and just Wanda Sykes in general) more than made up for that. Pootie Tang also cements my belief that Louis C.K. is a genius. It's a quick watch. Just see it.
Why haven't I reviewed this movie yet? I've seen years ago, and it still makes me smile when I think of it. Looking through other Flixter reviews, it seems people love this movie, but are afraid to give it a good rating. "Stupid..." they rant, ..."but can't help but laugh". I'm sorry, but if a comedy makes you laugh, doesn't that make it good? Cast off your fears of social persecution! Embrace Pootie Tang!
LOL. The more you realize how undeniably bad this movie wants to be, the more you see it's genius. It's a great movie to see how anybody can be a star for just about anything these days. This was a very funny movie, but most people will beg to differ if they can't get pass the silliness hahah.
This movie is just some serious ridiculousness. About the most unlikely man to be a hero and sex symbol, but is. Speaks jibberish, and whoops up on hilarious bad guys with a belt. Definitely worth a watch if you're in a silly mood.
