1995. USA. Dir: F. Gary Gray. With Ice Cube, Chris Tucker. 91 min. 35mm print.
Conceived as a comedy counterpoint to Boyz in the Hood, this quotable old-school hangout movie chronicles – with an emphasis on the “chronic” – a day in the life of a South Central block and the weed-enhanced bromance between Cube and Tucker. With the former recently red and the latter high on his own supply, trouble mounts quicker than you can say “bye, Felisha.”
