A Day For Older (but not old) Comedy

     I decided today to watch a older movie that I enjoyed when I was a little bit younger. I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, starring Keenan Ivory Wayans As Jack Spade, could be classified as a parody of the 1960's and 1970's exploitation films such as Super Fly, Cleopatra Jones, Shaft, and many others.
     With appearances by many famous faces, including music legend Isaac Hayes, famous American football player Jim Brown, and one of the first movie appearances of Chris Rock. in one of the funnies scenes in the movie
     The story of this movie has our hero, Jack Spade, returning home from a 10 year stint in the army, to find his brother had been murdered by gangsters (or gangstas if you will), after racking up a huge debt following his "gold fever"-an obsessive love of gold jewelry that has drivin him to do anything to aquire more gold chains.
      During his investigation into his brothers death, Spade uncovers an evil orginization, headed by Mr. Big, the leader of all organized crime. Discovering his new purpose in life, Jack must topple mr bigs orginization to save not only his town, but the love of his life.
     This is a wonderful movie for a ton of cheap laughs, and a great way to waste a little time in the evening.
