American Meh
9 August 2015 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

A movie that's rather hard to categorise, In a way it's a comedy except not particularly funny and in a way it's a drama except not particularly dramatic.

The movie is about a guy who's obsessed with black people and think they are the coolest people on earth simply for the fact that they are black.

I guess some people would call him a wigger but I think that he's just a delusional poser who thinks that he is the coolest guy on the block (with exceptions for the black guys of course, who by default are cooler since he's white).

He's extremely selfish and acts like a moron half the time which makes it really hard to care for him; for instance his best friend is an Indian (not so cool) who he's quick to throw under the bus once he's got a couple black friends (much cooler in his mind).

Shareeka Epps is a little easier to care for, she's the only character in this movie that feels real but even her character is slightly confusing.

It's taking place in 1995 and references the OJ Simpson trial and verdict, but some of the other references simply aren't accurate with the times like the lead quoting Tupac's 'Rather Be Ya N...' which wasn't released until 1996.

And the songs actually played in the movie aren't from the right year nor do they sound like they are either.

Most people won't care about that but if they were gonna do a backdrop at 1995 at least get it right.

At the end of the day though the biggest problem with this movie is that it has very little to say and offer and it just randomly stops with a less than impressive conclusion that feels forced.

PS if you think I used the word black too many times in this review, definitely don't watch this movie the b-word is thrown around more in this movie than the f-word was in Scarface, as far as the 'Kevin Smith presents' on the poster he had NOTHING to do with the making of the movie, friends or something of the directors I imagine.
