I went to see Tyler Perry’s new movie Nobody’s Fool. Check out my review below on DeluxMag.com:
Tyler Perry released his first Rated R movie—Nobody’s Fool over the weekend—and I decided to check it out. Mainly because Tiffany Haddish is the best female comedian out right now.
The movie is about Danica (played by Tika Sumpter) dating a guy named Charlie online but has never met him before. Her sister Tanya (played by Tiffany Haddish) gets out of jail and finds out that her sister could possibly be getting catfished, so she decided to intervene and call Nev & Max from the show Catfish.
Of course, things didn’t add up…at the time, so Danica was feeling down. In between time. she goes to this coffee shop every morning before work to get her coffee and Frank, played by Omari Hardwick, is feeling her. Unfortunately, she’s not interested because she is somewhat high maintenance and she just sees him as a coffee shop owner.
She finally comes to her senses—gets with Frank—then the real Charlie shows up. Danica entertains him, and it turns out he was all that she was expecting. So, she has to win Frank back over, which she eventually did in the end.
Over the weekend I went to see Night School starring Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart. If you haven’t seen the million previews over the last few months, the movie is about Kevin Hart being a high school dropout and he has to go back to high school because his job as a top salesman ended, due to him burning down the store. In order for him to work as a financial analyst at his friend’s company, he has to get his GED. But in the mean time, he’s working at fast food chicken spot. His nigh school teacher is Tiffany Haddish and she is TOUGH. She plays somewhat of a serious, which is different for her and I liked that. The story line is pretty predictable, because in the end he gets his GED..after 2-3 times of taking the test.
I feel like the jokes weren’t that funny. Yes, the movie had it’s funny parts but overall, I could’ve waited to see this movie on TV or come out on DVD. I like Tiffany Haddish role more than Kevin Hart because she played something reverse of what she usually does, which is comedy.
I will commend Kevin on producing this film under his HartBeat Productions Company; BUT, to me, he is not as funny as he use to be anymore. Yes, he has legendary jokes that we can still use to this day BUT I can’t think of any recent joke that has been truly funny. I would love to see him play a serious role in an action film, with limited comedy or limited typical Kevin Hart comedy, if that makes sense.
Has Kevin Hart become unfunny? Let me know your thought below!
Over the weekend I seen this movie and did NOT know that it was based on a true story. I really thought it was just another great movie that Jordan Peele wrote and Spike Lee so happenedly directed BUT that was partially the case. The man character Ron Stallsworth, is played by John David Washington, which is Denzel Washington’s SON. Ron is a rookie at the Colorado Springs police department and is placed on special assignment when he persuaded the chief that the KKK needed to be investigated. He infiltrated the Klan by calling them (got the number from local newspaper, stupid right?) Since there wasn’t caller ID back then, Ron didn’t have to call private. He literally put on his “white voice” and got in.
Ron used his “white voice” over the phone and had his white coworker actually go meet up with the klan and eventually join. There’s always one skeptical person and that was one of the Klansmen. He tried to intimidate the “white Ron Stallsworth” but it didn’t work.
The real Ron Stallsworth befriended a woman by the name of Patrice, from the Black Student Union at a local college and she was pro Black and down with the Black Power Movement. The police department tried to compare her and the student union to the “dangerous” Black Panther Movement but they weren’t like that BUT even if they were, they would be fighting or equality and respect.
Any who, the Klan was working on an attack towards the black student union, specifically Patrice because she was very vocal on the racism she faced, specifically from the Colorado Police Department, an officer that Ron was familiar with.
Ron had spoken to the David Duke over the phone on multiple occasions. David Duke was the head of the Klan at the time and so happened to be a politician. He was granted the opportunity to meet him in person, as himself, as his security for the initiation of the white version of him being inducted into the Klu Klux Klan. Along with the initiation going on, that same day was the day that the KKK had planned to attack Patrice and the Student Union. Ron stopped the attacked and it ended up back firing on the people involved because they were the ones who ended up dying.
While investigating the KKK, There weren’t any cross burnings happening in that chapter, nor any hangings or other causes of death. Ron also helped the FBI identify missing weapons (that were used in the attempted attack) that were stolen by military members who were actually in the KKK as well. They were arrested.
What was educational about the movie?
The fact that it was a true story and the fact that you wouldn’t be able to do this now as easy due to technology.
The fact that they really thought that black people only talked a certain way. The klan said that black people say things like “shucking and jiving” AND EVEN MORE FUNNY, instead of saying “Are you going to the store to get some chicken” we say “Ar-uh”, like we really can’t say the word “are”. So judgmental, but are we surprised…nah.
Why was this funny?
This was funny because the Klan and any other racist people don’t give Black People enough credit for being just as smart and even smarter than them.
The Klan got GOT. Now’s who’s the dumb one.
Also, the fact the David Duke didn’t know he was talking to a black man over the phone and he was sooooo comfortable with the real Ron. Btw, David Duke was played by Topher Grace, who played Eric Forman on That 70’s Show.
Why was the infiltration successful?
Ron saved lives
Ron prevented SOME cross burnings
He got a lot of intel
Why was the movie successful?
Well, it brought in $10.8 Million opening weekend!
I really enjoyed this movie. It was informative, entertaining, kind of angering because of the language used, but overall it was a good movie.
