Hollywood Shuffle

Hollywood Shuffle

Starring: Robert Townsend, Keenen Ivory Wayans,
John Witherspoon, Helen Martin
Director: Robert Townsend

The best example of urban guerilla filmmaking is ironically - and happily - also one of Hollywood's most triumphant success stories. Actor Robert Townsend (I'm Gonna Git You Sucka!), decrying the lack of good roles for black actors, puts his money where his mouth is and co-scripts (with Keenen Ivory Wayans), directs and stars in this "exuberant, tirelessly energetic, funny, appealingly mean-spirited and easy-to-like" (Janet Maslin, The New York Times) comedy that took Tinseltown by storm!

Actor wannabe Bobby Taylor (Townsend) dreams of landing a role...any role. But in a town where the best black roles are usually jive-talkin' gangsta stereotypes, Bobby learns that you have to make your own parts - even if they're just in your head. Spoofing everything from Micheal Jackson's "Thriller" and Eddie Murphy to Siskel & Ebert, Bobby's vivid imagination - and The Hollywood Shuffle - are "an exhilarating blast" (New York Magazine)!
