    I don't know why Spike Lee directed this but it's hilarious, all up in Charlotte.

    Funny. Too vulgar when all is said and done.

    I've never seen so many fat black chicks laughing at one time in one crowd. Also I only laughed hard at one joke during the entire DVD, and that was Hughley's "two week notice" bit. Steve Martin's rant about today's rap music was pretty spot on though.
