Movie Info

Recording star and rapper Master P is the executive producer, screenwriter, and co-star (with A.J. Johnson of The Players Club) of this comedy about two South Central Los Angeles scam artists operating a business in a vacant lot. Working out of their van, Black (Master P) and Blue (Johnson) deal in TV sets and boomboxes, but when a driver mistakenly drops off a cell phone shipment, Black and Blue are ready to dial "C" for cash, bringing in both a local hacker (Anthony Boswell) and sexy Sweet Lorraine (Gretchen Palmer). Business is on the upswing, but then a hood (Tommy "Tiny" Lister Jr.) has a deal go sour and blames Black and Blue. A phone security man (Frantz Turner) and the FBI are also closing in. Rapper Ice Cube does a cameo.

A waste of time.

Slipshod storytelling, junior high-level acting and direction that resembles Aunt Gertrude's home movies.

Audience Reviews for I Got The Hook-Up


When I went to see this movie I was hesitant, but it actually turned out to be really funny. I felt like i was watching the real sequel to "Friday". The movie is quirky and hilarious. There are a lot of notable actors many from "Friday" the others are rappers off of Master P's No Limit label. Ice Cube has a cameo where he sells a stolen car to AJ Johnson. If you liked "Friday" and have got nothing against Master P I recommend this movie. Believe me you will be laughing...

Racist, puerile, pointless and completely irredeemable. For what it's worth, this is one of those funny bad movies that a group can watch and feel some of the same film-mocking fun of MST3K.
