  1. Pretty thin feature-film subject. But the silliness is so contagious that it doesn't matter.

    Pootie Tang may be raw and slovenly -- hey, it often is raw and slovenly -- but it succeeds as a laugh getter because of the spot-on satirical notes. You might say that the movie walks it like it talks it; I'm not sure what Pootie would say.

    Never quite deciding if it wants to parody or uphold the ongoing cultural romance with the Pimp, Pootie Tang mostly feels like a sad retread.

    Only the makers of "Freddy Got Fingered" might crack a smile because it now has competition for worst movie of the year.
  5. A wretch-a-sketch, a two-minute character-based skit (an occasional feature on HBO's "The Chris Rock Show") stretched to a mind-boggling 82 minutes.

    Has the distinction of being one of the most amateurish features ever released by a major studio.
