Someone should really get Snoop Dogg a new agent. First, he makes admirable appearances in several worthwhile films (Baby Boy and Training Day come to mind) but then, inexplicably, slides into a late night Cinemax reject (Bones) and follows that film up with his latest, The Wash.It’s bad enough when the premise of a film sounds less than appealing, but the actors could at least make the story worth sitting through. The film centers on Sean (rap impresario Dr. Dre) who’s in desperate need of cash…and fast. With the rent due and his car booted, Sean has to come up with some form of income quickly. When his best buddy and roommate Dee Loc (Snoop Dogg), suggests that Sean get a job washing cars down at the local car wash, the first order of business is impressing Mr. Washington (George Wallace) the gun-toting, dominoes-playing owner of The Wash. Unaware that the two are roommates, Mr. Washington hires Sean as Dee Loc's supervisor. Comic tensions flare between the two, especially when Dee Loc suspects Sean of trying to interfere with the side hustles he's got going on in the car wash parking lot and with the ladies in the locker room (it’s positively nostalgic…just like all those old ‘70s blaxploitation flicks). But, there are bigger things to worry about at The Wash--one is the menacing phone calls from a disgruntled employee, and the other is figuring out how to get money to pay off the kidnappers who've snatched Mr. Washington. If Sean, Dee Loc and the rest of the gang don't settle their differences and get Mr. Washington back, the good times at The Wash will soon come to an end. Writer/director DJ Pooh (real name Mark Jordan) who also wrote Friday, a far better urban comedy, is largely to blame for the failure of The Wash. Trite characterizations, lame dialogue and contrived situations all add up to less than humorous. That said, there are still a few moments of laugh-out-loud hilarity that punctuate the otherwise dreary goings-on. The cast performs as well as can be expected, with the standouts being Dre (making his second screen appearance in less than six months, after Training Day) and the riotous Wallace as the grumpy Mr. Washington. On the whole, nothing about The Wash warrants a mad dash to the multiplex.Hopefully, Snoop Dogg’s next project will be a return to the likes of Training Day rather than this sudsy nothing. Like Pooh’s other films (3 Strikes, Next Friday), this film will be much more enjoyable on the couch than in the theater.
