CB4 Back In Theaters!

gang3.JPGIn 1993 Chris Rock started in one of the funniest movies I’d ever seen. It was called CB4 and was a mockumentary about gangsta rap, specifically NWA. Chris Elliott starred as the film maker which made it all that much better. The character “Dead Mike” has one of the best scenes ever when he’s working at a phone sex company prior to the band taking off. Well I just found out that it’s coming back to theaters in March! Except now it’s called Gangsta Rap: The Glockumentary. It also has a different cast, the film maker is being played by Damon “Coke” Daniels who also wrote and directed it, and didn’t mention CB4 anywhere in the press release I just got. In fact, if I didn’t know better I’d think they think this is a new movie unrelated to CB4 at all. But come on, one of the guys in the group is named “Murder Mike.” I wrote the publicist back pointing out that this movie already came out in 1993 and she replied saying “CB4 is a funny ass movie, but not the same! hahaha” I asked her to hook me up with a pass to the screening so I can compare and contrast. She said she’ll keep me posted. I own CB4 on DVD so you know I’ll be taking notes.
