Plot Summary

This comic spoof is spun off from a character that first appeared on The Chris Rock Show, and is written and directed by Louis C.K., one of that show's producers. Lance Crouther stars as Pootie Tang, a crime fighting superhero and recording artist who speaks in an unintelligible gibberish that seems to be a combination of Ebonics and street slang. Despite his communication problem, Pootie is a hero to children, whom he attempts to protect from the evil Dick Lecter (Robert Vaughn), a corporate fat cat out to corrupt America's youth with alcohol, tobacco, and junk food. Pootie also runs up against an artistic imitator (David Cross) and a sleazy recording executive (Andy Richter) Pootie Tang co-stars Chris Rock, Dave Attell, and Bob Costas and Conan O'Brien as themselves.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: As brilliant as Rock can be, this material is a reflection of his shallow, moralistic side. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Rotten: As a big-screen vamp on the cable sketch, it plays itself out long before 'The End' crawls into view. – Miles Beller, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: This astonishingly unfunny Paramount comedy is burdened with writing, direction and acting that would cause Ed Wood to wince. – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The movie's comic powers are often marred by silliness and stereotypes. – Christopher Muther, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

probably a little too hip for the room

great movie...i think it will go over most people's heads. it's making a subtle point using broad gestures. i really liked this movie.

Wa Dah Tah

Cappa tow, my dammies

Not your mother's pootie tang.

I don't think I've ever laughed so hard and then demanded that all my friends, who i respect the most, see the flic. About 1 out of 4 don't like it, but they're not my friends anymore.
