In Reviews on April 19, at 2: This rarely made a difference. I know why they exist. It also seems from poking around that none of them are really that terrible. In other words, I wanted this to be my Katt Williams baptism because, if the facts were correct, there was nowhere to go but up.
It uses the ever popular red-and-black typeface that has made films like Norbit which also stars Williams! Ten years ago, Master P was an unquestionable force in the entertainment industry, frequently landing in the list of the 40 highest-paid entertainers. One of the disadvantages of the digital age is that since our lives are increasingly spent online, fiction has to adapt and find new and dynamic ways to depict the most static and visually uninteresting activity next to sleeping.
Apparently the best way this is to let Williams riff on the various fields in which he must enter information, something that Williams seems all too comfortable doing.
Mickey also has random encounters with his friends and neighbors: You know those chintzy shows like Elimidate the production values of which this seems to mirror, but more on that later where thought bubbles periodically pop up to helpfully point out what characters are thinking? Suffice to say that the insights in the thought bubbles are actually not all that insightful and sometimes downright idiotic.
Most of the time, they simply reiterate what the characters have just said seconds before. Anyway, Mickey and his cohorts get into a bunch of crazy shenanigans befitting a man who lies about his persona on the Internet, including: Horny horny horny horny! These shenanigans eventually land him in jail gadzooks!
Trey weaving his magic. His fellow restaurant employees two interchangeably dumb dudes and a flippant girl take the brunt of the abuse while Katt Williams is most likely off somewhere doing something more productive than starring in Internet Dating. When characters are introduced, the frame freezes into a handy character guide in hideous pink, yellow and green clip art.
Scenes shot outside are fuzzy with background noise. Any and all logos are explicitly blurred out Williams even sports a Lakers jersey that has to be blurred out, showcasing the care and thoughtful planning that has gone into this film and every sign is digitally added.
Trey has this friend named Rabbit, a spazzy space cadet who we get to watch getting spanked by the aforementioned fat lady. To give praise where praise is due, Williams is actually relatively funny. Most of the time his asides and furious improvising have nothing to do with anything but that proves to be a salvation from the incredibly laborious and unfunny rest of the movie. To continue my TLC comparison from earlier, let me say this: They try so hard to look off-the-cuff and genuine yet are extremely stiff and rehearsed?
In fact, the whole thing looks so shitty and ill-conceived that the overall tone is a lot closer to a home movie than anything ever intended for public consumption. On behalf of all your fans, Master P, I am disappointed in you. So why does it exist?
