Juwanna Mann was a top notch comedy, but not an
exceedingly great movie. It is a teen flick, but I enjoyed
it. The minor incidences between characters were what made
the movie funny. This picture was a hilarious joke against
the opposite sex. It made sick jokes into funny masterminds.
I've seen the Eddie Griffin movie Undercover Brother,
all of these black culture films seem so hilarious. That was
partly why I enjoyed Juwanna Mann more than I
normally would. If it wasn't for Mr. Brother, this would've
probably been a 1.5 Bucket movie. Thanks to the funky vibe
of the 70's "Juwanna" was an enjoyable treat.
thing that let me down in this movie was the predictability.
It was worth 3 Buckets until the end, where the
predictability reached it prime, and then vanquished the
rating by a half a bucket. But, overall the script was
absolutely fine. The very offending crude humor was some how
turned into notorious fun.
insight on this movie is that it is a teen comedy full of
sluts and lesbians, that really isn't the truth. This comedy
is a comedic extravaganza of harmless fun. It is just like
movies such as: Big Momma's House, The Nutty
Professor, and Dr. Dolittle. The crude humor
isn't an offensive issue; it's accepted for a certain level
of sincerity and rather funny if I do say so myself.
Overall this movie wasn't great but it made me laugh; it was
a perfect example of a funny but average comedy. It was
worth the six bucks to get in but I would've probably
enjoyed seeing something else. But in the end it was good,
that's all that matters. I declare "Thumb's Up"* for
Up is a phrase used by Ebert and Roeper (Website).
