Woo (1998)






















Starring:
  • Jada Pinkett Smith
  • Tommy Davidson
  • Duane Martin
IMDB.com
Darlene "Woo" Bates, played by Jada Pinkett Smith, has been dumped a little bit too many times, now this femme-fatale doesn't let just any man swing with her, and when she's set up on a blind-date with Tommy Davidson's character, it could be love.. if they don't kill each other first. "Woo" features cameos by Foxy Brown, LL Cool J, and Duane Martin.

"Woo" is about a woman (named, of all things, Woo!) who goes on a blind date with a guy who hasn't been with a woman in a long time. Woo has been through a lot with men and gets the feeling this new guy just wants one thing, so she leads him on a series of late-night adventures a la Scorsese's "After Hours." This movie is L-A-M-E lame. It's packed with all sorts of awful dialogue, poor performances, racial stereotypes (including the big fat black woman who waves her finger at everyone and finishes every sentence with the word "girlfriend") and so on and so forth.

Nowadays it's best remembered for starring Jada Pinkett (Smith), wife of Will Smith. Her performance isn't that good and it's hard to believe they based an entire movie -- including the TITLE! -- on her character.

Overall this is poor, stupid, (intellectually) offensive and insulting, clichéd, stereotypical and worse than all that: uninteresting! It's not entertaining, it's not funny, it's just dumb and annoying.

Not even worth watching on TV.
