Synopsis An antidote to the 1990s spate of urban coming-of-age films. The tale of a black youth sent to live with his father in the 'hood, this spoof parodies the key elements of such serious movies as Boyz N the Hood, Menace II Society and Juice.Complete title: Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. A presentation of Island Pictures. An Ivory Way production. Additional credit: Hiriam Hicks (soundtrack executive producer) Additional song performers: Ghostface Killa, Wu-Tang Clan, Lost Boyz, Mona Lisa, Junior Mafia's Lil Kim Color by DeLuxe. Released theatrically in the USA January 12, 1996.This film is a parody of the recent hood movies made by African-American directors, in particular John Singleton's Boyz 'N the Hood. The plot focuses on Ashtray, a do-gooder who comes to South Central L.A. to live with his father. Unfortunately, Dad turns out to be a poor role model, as he extols the virtues of unsafe sex and drunk driving. Ashtray's cousin Loc Dog is no better, with his hair-trigger temper and extensive weaponry (including a nuclear bomb). Ashtray manages to find romance with a pretty poet named Dashiki, but it turns out that she's a little too popular with the men in her neighborhood -- and not for her writing skills. Will Ashtray become disillusioned by what he's seen and experienced in South Central?One out of ten black men will be forced to sit through a `growing up in the hood movie' during their lifetime. One out of five will be shot in the theater. -- statistics at the beginning of the movie We're an endangered species. The rappers are getting all the good acting jobs. -- Ashtray (SHAWN WAYANS), to one of Dashiki's many children, who is armed with a gun know there ain't no positive black females in these movies. -- a middle-class mom, saying goodbye to her son, and explaining why she won't appear in the film again...This savage parody of the many recent coming-of-age-in-the-ghetto melodramas is rude, crude and outrageous......Spirited and hilarious......A free-for-all comic spoof....Beneath the hysteria, you can feel the movie's boiling rage...
