THE PLOT THUS FAR
When the blue collar Jordan family wins a radio contest for a million dollars, they quickly begin to realize that more money means more problems. It seems everybody wants a piece of their new fortune, including a long lost uncle played masterfully by comedian Eddie Griffin. It’s a feel-good evening of laughter and song for the entire family!
WHAT WE THOUGHT
There’s something to be said for ethnic stage shows. Most of the time, they’re awkward melodramatic pieces that scare off a sizeable portion of the population. Other times, people get shot in the parking lot leaving these shows. You might say I’m generalizing, but I don’t know what else to say. It’s a twenty-two minute plot stretched to nearly TWO FUCKING HOURS!
The production left me scratching my head. Sure, it’s a sitcom plot with some forced morals. But, why is this setting the community on fire? What I don’t get is that there is nobody that really comes out and says that they’ve got to see a David E. Talbert show. Maybe, I’m just not the target audience?
The DVD comes with featurettes. The Dolby 5.1 track is wasted on a muddled soundstage. However, the transfer holds up for what it is. But, the lighting still made everyone look like they were in a funeral home. In the end, I’d only recommend a rental to the target audience.
