I'm Gonna Git You Sucka! Details


[[Performer~P116125~Keenen Ivory Wayans~keenenivorywayans]] wrote, directed, and starred in this hilarious parody of blaxploitation films in the comedy I'm Gonna Git You Sucka. Jack Spade ([[Performer~P116125~Wayans~keenenivorywayans]]) returns home from a hitch in the army to find his brother Junebug has died from an overdose of gold chains, leaving his widow Cheryl ([[Performer~P42189~Dawnn Lewis~dawnnlewis]]) and mother Ma Bell ([[Performer~P20241~Ja'net DuBois~janetdubois]]) alone to fend for themselves. Ma throws two inept thugs ([[Performer~P75075~Damon Wayans~damonwayans]] and [[Performer~P30348~Kadeem Hardison~kadeemhardison]]) sent by the evil white guy Mr. Big ([[Performer~P73373~John Vernon~johnvernon]]) down a flight of stairs. Junebug owes $5,000 to Mr. Big for his gold-chain addiction and tries to force Cheryl into prostitution to pay off the debt. Jack recruits his old friend to go after Mr. Big to seek revenge. John Slade ([[Performer~P11553~Bernie Casey~berniecasey]]), Hammer ([[Performer~P31228~Isaac Hayes~isaachayes]]), Slammer ([[Performer~P83235~Jim Brown~jimbrown]]) Kung Fu Joe ([[Performer~P217596~Steve James~stevejames]]) and the former Pimp Of The Year Flyguy ([[Performer~P22671~Antonio Fargas~antoniofargas]]) join up with Jack to avenge his brother' death. [[Performer~P60918~Chris Rock~chrisrock]] makes a brief appearance as the annoying customer who risks his life by irking rib joint owner Hammer. Funny and fast paced, the writing, acting, sight gags and cameos by [[Performer~P114469~Robert Townsend~roberttownsend]], [[Performer~P42647~Peggy Lipton~peggylipton]], [[Performer~P76410~Clarence Williams III~clarencewilliamsiii]], [[Performer~P57106~Eve Plumb~eveplumb]] (Jan from [[Feature~V134313~The Brady Bunch~thebradybunchmovie]]), [[Performer~P75076~Kim Wayans~kimwayans]], and [[Performer~P54516~Gary Owens~garyowens]] makes this a must-see for any comedy fan. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
