I suppose you gotta appreciate the guts it takes to make any movie where the black people are mean and stupid and all the white people are racist and uncool. Antwan Andre Patton (aka Big Boi) plays a wealthy hip-hop label owner who wants to become a member of the country club where his father once worked as a caddy. Naturally, the uptight aristocrats who run the place are completely against the idea, but that doesn’t stop our hero and his group of increasingly silly stock character friends from doing everything they can (including bikini-clad booty on the greens) to overthrow the powers in charge and make the place their own. This modern update of Caddyshack is clunky, silly and not funny, hampered by bad acting and a weak script.
