Pretty much a bad excuse to work in stand-up material courtesy of Griffin, scenes with Andrew Dice Clay, and buxom, naked chicks.

What would inspire someone who cannot write or act to pen and star in a movie?

The film loses complete credibility when the audiences at the comedy clubs where Foolish works go wild with delight, way out of proportion to the hilarity of the material. And Foolish is just a little too smug about his artistic integrity.

Balancing comedy with drama is tough for the best writers and even tougher for newcomers.

It's probably more reasonable to evaluate it as an Eddie Griffin concert film.

Simpleminded melodrama about two brothers' conflicting struggles to better their lives. Oops, not only did I describe the story, I just gave the entire story away. Sorry.

Griffin's few sparks onstage are not worth the wait.

Eddie Griffin buffs have the best reason to check out this amateurish effort: Griffin's profane, sometimes sharply observed stand-up routines take up a big chunk of the movie's total running time.

The miserable production values-the cardboard sets rival a Little Rascals talent show-and P's stone-faced delivery are merely amateurish, but as a vanity project for Griffin, Foolish is downright appalling.

A strange combination of urban melodrama and comedy concert film.
