Story of a promising high school basketball star and his relationships with two brothers, one a drug dealer and the other a former basketball star fallen on hard times and now employed as a security guard.
"Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking your Juice in the Hood" is a parody of several U.S. films about being in the 'Hood', for instance "Boyz n the Hood", "South Central", "Menace II Society", "Higher Learning" and "Juice". We follow Ashtray as he returns to the place he grew up in and meet his father and his basket-case friends. Crazy stuff happens. For example, Ashtray is older than his father and his best friend Loc Dog's grandmother is a trigger-happy old lady who blames her eccentric-looking kid for not being tough enough.Written by

A trailer for the film included the tagline, "It's the only movie released this year with fourteen words in its title" See more »
When Loc Dog is pouring out some of his Colt 40 on his "dead homies," you can see two of them flinching, especially the one getting the drink poured on him. See more »
Having a gun doesn't give you any power. You wanna know where the real power is?
In the bullets!
No! In The books! See, Doo Rag, your mind - it is like a gun, and you wanna load it up with little... bitty... bullets... of knowledge.

The Unrated version contains the following alternate scenes: Loc Dog's chat with the thug chick at the barbecue is extended; After Ashtray is released from jail Loc Dog, Preach and Crazy Legs play a game of Po'Nopoly; Loc Dog's dream is shown at the Old School scene; During Toothpick's drive by, instead of Ashtray running away he tries to save Dashiki, making more sense why he is suddenly lying on the ground; When grandma is said to have the "juice", she chops the guy's head off and puts it in her purse, referring to 'Dead Presidents'.

This movie is wonderful. It points out all of the absurdities of the earlier 'hood movies. You need to have seen most of the movies being parodied in order to see the true depth of the humor in this movie.
Absolutely one of my favorite light comedies with "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka" and "Half Baked". I can't put it in a category with "Airplane" because that is the standard by which all other parodies are measured.
