In terms of action, Wayans the director relies too much on slow-motion in shooting action scenes -- a tiresome habit that undercuts the potential excitement of some sequences.
So far, so hackneyed.
Mr. Wayans is an agreeable screen presence, but he makes a surprisingly bland action hero.
Wayans isn't sure whether to send up Shaft and company or simply to remake the action thriller. The result is an embarrassing compromise.
Here is a movie about guns. Take away the guns, and the movie would be about nothing much.
It's easy -- far too easy -- to use the title of Keenen Ivory Wayans' latest movie as a description. Unfortunately, it's also accurate.
Wayans can be funny, but an action hero he is not.
Wayans the screenwriter is largely to blame for the film's shortcomings, but Wayans the director does a solid job.
The comedy is hit-or-miss, while Wayans proves to be a huge fan of Hong Kong action flicks, ripping off a number of action sequences from them.
Question of the day: why is there such an appeal to brainlessness?
Unfortunately, however, where I'm Gonna Git You Sucka was completely off the wall, A Low Down Dirty Shame is just off.
I'm not sure what type of movie this is supposed to be or who its audience is, but it's a low down dirty shame that Wayans' talent is wasted on this film.
Peaches : Shame might be soft on you, but I can see through all that Maybelline. And you ain't nothin' but a gold-diggin' skank, tryin' to get a man for all he's worth. You hurt Shame again, you betta watch yo' back!
Shame: I'll go take me a shower and pretend that I didn't wake up in The Crying Game!
Shame (played by Keenan Ivory Wayan) is a former cop now a private detective with, who is broke. When an old friend offers him a job to track down a criminal who Shame believes he had killed, he takes the case for personal as much as financial reasons and soon finds himself in a whole world of trouble. Meanwhile his sassy secretary Peaches (a hilarious Jada Pinkett), tries to help him but the sexual tension between them also proves to be a distraction.
My favorite part was when Peaches punched out a soap opera actor Brad because his character had sex with one of the other characters that she didn't like haha. Another funny scene is when Shame has a couple dogs chasing him and he started singing a song by James Brown to calm them down. (Well they do say music sooths the savage beast lol) And what about that bedroom scene when he wakes up next to ~Girlfriend~
Not bad action-comedy of Keenen Ivory Wayans' film. Jada Pinkett's animated performance as Shame's fast-talking girl Friday is one of the few outstanding elements in this otherwise so-so spoof of blaxploitation pictures.
i am chuy yung phat, do you know what this means?
yea, it means you come with an egg roll and mi so soup.
This comedy is either a hit-or-miss
