Critic Reviews for I'm Gonna Git You Sucka

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (6)

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.

Top Critic

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

August 30, 2004 | Rating: 3/5
New York Times
Top Critic

Although, like all good satires, it is cheerfully willing to be offensive, it is almost completely incapable of being funny.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

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.

Audience Reviews for I'm Gonna Git You Sucka

Spoofing blacksploitation films just seems like a risky game in the first place, but when you have a great cast and a hilarious script to go along with it, you are on a one-way street. Lead by the very talented Keenan Ivory Wayans, this film follows Jack Spade after he returns home to find out his younger brother has died from an overdose of Gold Chains. The plot just goes off on a tangent from there, but the ridiculousness is enough to keep you extremely entertained. I loved watching this film and laughing at each scenario that presented itself to the characters. This parody is not one to miss if you are a fan of this genre. In the 80's, parodies were at their peak, and this one is another home run. Although some of the jokes feel easy and a few seem redundant, I can forgive all of that, due to the films effortless humour. "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" is great fun!
