I would do this entire review in ebonics, but I don’t want to leave some of my other readers hanging–yes all 1 of you!
When I entered the theater, I was surprised to see only 5 of my broddahs sitting in the back-middle & one old white man close to the front. The old man realized quality in the film industry very late into his years, but at least it hit him before his time’s up. God have mercy on his soul.
Well, I attributed this small audience to the release of yet ANOTHER Harry Potter — you’d think they’d realize the first two were bad enough, but I guess when you have $200 million to blow, why not blow it on little kids who can do some magic tricks. It’s sad, I tell you.
Well, our sub $10 million dollar flick was full of quality dialogue, a simple story (highly essential in laying down great jokes), and cameos by some very famous people (mainly Snoop Dogg). I don’t know about their choice in Tom Arnold, though. There are so many other white males who can play the “typical white father” role, but I guess since Tom Arnold isn’t really landing any roles as of late, he must have came real cheap. In creating ‘Soul Plane’ the producers didn’t really have a bottomless pit of money, so naturally they were forced to make some sacrifices in their selection of cast members. The criteria for the role were probably very simple: literate, white male with a “has-been” reputation. Tom’s obviously white, can read and his relationship w/ Roseanne Barr makes him a recognizable ‘has-been.’View All Photos ›
