My yearbook class finished the book on Monday. Every year, after we're done, I let them watch a movie in class before making them do any more work (which is mostly busy work at this point, since I'm still required to give them grades until June, but the class only exists for the yearbook). I can show anything that's PG-13 or below by board policy, and this year they voted for Pootie Tang.

I was completely ignorant of this, which my kids attributed to my whiteness. Of course, it was riffing on Dolemite pretty regularly, and they had no idea what that was. Anybody seen this? Hilariously inept, but apparently on purpose.

I've heard good things about it but never saw it myself. Is it worth checking out?

I laughed, despite too much profanity in front of a class that I've been trying to get to stop swearing (which is tough, when I've got no administrative backup and therefore no authority). But very much in the Dolemite vein of looking like it was shot for $1.50, not counting Chris Rock's salary. Some of the joke is how amateurish it looks. If that appeals, it's worth checking out.

Written and directed by Louis CK, by the way.

This is like Freddy Got Fingered. You either get it, or you hate every frame of it. Having said that, this isn't as memorable as Freddy Got Fingered. Except it has a gorilla.

Yeah, I can see being pissed if you paid for a ticket and walked into this expecting, y'know, a movie. But it's funny.

Pootie Tang is the greatest movie ever made.
