Fakin' Da Funk (1997)

  • Ernie Hudson
  • Pam Grier
  • Duane Martin
Chinese kid Julian, who was adopted by the black family of Joe and Annabelle Lee and Asian exchange student May-Ling, who is housed with a black family, are trying to adapt to their mostly black neighborhood of South Central.

One thing I will never understand about the film world is why the best comedies are never appreciated. This film ceases to have a dull moment and this largely can be credited to the writers who have a great visual style of comedy.

Fakin' Da Funk is one of my favorite movies. There's at least one joke a minute. A lot of it is John Witherspoon's dry humor though so if you don't like that, this movie isn't for you. However, many jokes are very clever with perfect timing. This is one of the most original comedies to be made in the past 10 years.

Director Tim Chey clearly deserves a lot of credit for giving these two the freedom to basically just do their acts.
