Urban Comedy
17 October 2003 | by (east orange, new jersey) – See all my reviews

Since Eddie Griffin showed his face in the world of entertainment,I didn't care for his comic routines. In the past he was simple and wasn't funny at all. But after watching this movie (DysFunktional Family) I have a different perspective of him as a comic. He hit on every issue dealing with the middle-class black community such as parenting,religion,sports,drunks,drugs,and relatives. I have to admit this movie had me in tears quite a few times. I agree with the commentary by Derrick Dunn this is somewhat of an urban stand up and you have to live through it in order to understand it. If not of course it won't be funny. A recommended movie for family and friends.
