Thanks to the homies at Samurai Comics, my sister and I got to see this early. This was one of the only summer movies I was really looking forward to seeing and I was not disappointed; a lot of fun.
I’m really surprised Lebron James decided to go back to Cleveland. Oh well, here is some classic Joakim Noah…
Growing up Filipino-American in the ’90s makes me a huge Basco Brothers fan, so I was pretty excited to find this after not seeing it in a long time. Basically, the premise is that an African-American family from Atlanta accidentally adopts an Asian baby. The family raise him as their own and move to LA; where everyone seems to think Dante Basco’s character, Julian aka Korean Abdul-Jabbar, is “fakin’ da funk”. There’s a side story that follows a Chinese foreign exchange student, played by Margaret Cho, who gets sent to the “wrong hood”. It’s a decent flick. Plus, it has Pops, Pam Grier, Tatyana Ali, and Tone Loc.

I have no idea how old I was at the time, but I remember I was pretty young. I was living in Chicago and my older cousin lived in Southern California; every now and then our families would visit and every visit my cousin would introduce me to something I immediately took to. He had already gotten me into hip hop culture, but I guess nothing really hit me just yet. A few months or a year later, he gave me a mixtape with a bunch of songs that made me fall in love with the music. This was one of those songs.
Great enthusiasm. Even better beard.
GO CUBS GO!
I finally got around to checking this out and I really liked it. Good flick, good story. I, like most people I’m sure, couldn’t help but see this as Dazed & Confused's Wooderson in his later years.
