To objectively critique Fear of A Black Hat is simply to ask why this isn't regarded as one of the best comedies of all time. Most obviously is the originality demerits that come with being produced a decade after Spinal Tap. Still, even in its imitation it is brilliantly original, filled with nonstop laughs stemming from the sheer outlandishness of NWH (Niggas With Hats) and the society that produced them. The film could be a lot heavier with the cultural commentary, only dabbling lightly in a wide variety of controversial issues for laughs rather than to make any truly bold statements. It can also be argued that the characters similarity to real life rappers is too blatant, and somewhat cheap (Flava Flav is Tasty Taste, Ice Cube is Ice Cold, etc). Really, it has very few shortcomings. I'm assuming the marketing for this film was terrible, and I hope that one day this will be recognized as the deliciously entertaining film that it is.
