Directed by Robert Townsend | 1987

With Robert Townsend, Craigus R. Johnson, Helen Martin

"Townsend's satire may be gentle, but more often than not it's spot on."
—Time Out

Comedian Townsend maxed out his credit cards to make this wildly inventive Hollywood satire, which went on to astounding box-office success. Taking aim at the industry’s stereotypical depictions of African Americans, Townsend plays an actor trying to make it in a business where the only roles available seem to be slaves, hoods, and various “Eddie Murphy types.” Highlights include fantasy sequences in which Townsend imagines himself as everything from a film noir gumshoe to action hero “Rambro.”
