Some film executives are sitting around one afternoon, drunk as usual. The following is a brief transcript of the "pitch meeting" that allowed In Too Deep to get made:Moron: Let's do a sequel to New Jack City!
Fool: Yeah! The holmies will really dig it--Word!
Idiot: Some fly cop will infiltrate a drug ring, and pose as part of the "posse".
Smacked Ass: I am so seeing Omar Epps in this role.
Moron: But let's not make it a sequel. This idea is so original! Can I get get a Word?
Idiot: Anyway, we can take the same exact angle that Deep Cover took, but we can add a scene where LL Cool J sticks a pool stick up some nude guy's ass!!!!!
All: <blank stare>
Moron: And let's add a bunch of flash backs and forwards. It will be so distracting that nobody will notice that this movie makes no sense! We can easily get a budget big enough to get Stanley Tucci to play the pointless role of FBI guy.
Idiot: He'll be almost as dramatic as he was in The Impostors.
Jerk: Who will we get to write it?
Moron: What write it? We just did!
Smacked Ass: Well, if we're going to make an action movie with three huge stars such as these, we're going to have to cut something out.
ALL: How about ALL the action scenes??Watered down and dull, this crime yarn adds nothing to the genre, doesn't hold your interest, and has some of the funniest acting I've ever seen in a drama. Makes one yearn for the mid-eightes, and that's a pathetic thing to yearn for.
