Pootie Tang works, in part, because it doesn't. Which is to say the movie's special success is inextricable from the moments where it blatantly fails. The movie exerts a beguiling charm that can only be explained as the je ne sais quoi of sa da tay.

Writer-director Louis C.K. (I wouldn't give my correct name either) was named on Entertainment Weekly's "It List," proving that entertainment is in a bad way.

Pootie is such an original, utterly absurd conception that, however one may hesitate over superfluous matters of good taste or (horrors!) political correctness, anyone with an ounce of humor will find it impossible not to succumb in gales of laughter.

There are bad movies, there are disappointing movies, and then there's Pootie Tang, a movie so incompetent, it almost defies description.

A bona fide cult object in the making.

It seems as if the studio thought they had a black Austin Powers, while in fact what they have is more like a black Dude, Where's My Car?.

Good for a couple of well-earned laughs but ultimately overstays its welcome.

July 2, 2001
A pretty inspired and consistently witty satirical skewering of three decade's worth of macho black pop cultural clichés.
July 2, 2001
A spectacular train wreck of a film where the participants seem oblivious to the dreck they've crafted and performed in.
July 2, 2001
Mostly an amusing exercise in black vernacular, searching for a point.

It would've made a great 30-minute comic short. Most of the film is padding.
July 2, 2001
This astonishingly unfunny Paramount comedy is burdened with writing, direction and acting that would cause Ed Wood to wince.

The rule is pretty simple: The thinner the skit, the thinner the big-screen spin-off.
July 2, 2001
Mostly it's shoddy, amateurish, and cheap-looking.

The material it does pull off is daring and sharp.

I would rather watch all the Pokemon movies, back to back, than waste my time watching this production for a second time.

Dull and unfunny claptrap.

Think of an infantile, babblegabbing Shaft without any real cool.
