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.

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.

A bona fide cult object in the making.
July 2, 2001
A pretty inspired and consistently witty satirical skewering of three decade's worth of macho black pop cultural clichÚs.
July 2, 2001
Mostly an amusing exercise in black vernacular, searching for a point.

Its calculated crudity and sledgehammer gags offer the same ephemeral pleasures one gets when heckling a campy blaxploitation thriller.

Cheaply made stuff, patently stupid and, most of the time, a pure pleasure to watch.

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.

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

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?.
July 2, 2001
Good for a couple of well-earned laughs but ultimately overstays its welcome.
