A black writer for a network, Pierre is in the middle of a personal crisis.

On the other hand, he looks at his comedian father whom he considers a failure and doesn’t want to end up like.

With his white network boss breathing down his neck, Pierre harks back to the era of blackface and minstrel shows and creates a pilot that goes viral, swallowing in its juggernaut, most of those involved with it.

    This movie is incredible. I remember when I bought I was so excited to watch another Damon Wayans movie. I was looking to get my Major Payne on. Boy, was I shocked. This movie is incredible. It may be Effedup, but it’s beautiful and incredibly sad. The acting in this movie should have won multiple awards, but just like the characters in this movie, they were seen as just goofy characters in a satire, that only black people would “understand”, which is bullshit!
