"It'll make your day a 'white boy day'!"
4 stars

Watch out Bryan and Walt-

This is what happens when you work one too many hours at THE STASH!

Christan Slater plays screenwriter Quentin Tarantino's alter-ego Clarence, a comic store clerk who falls for a hooker named Alabama (Patricia Arquette) and then finds himself in a whole shit load of trouble. Gary Oldman plays Alabama's pimp, a white guy who thinks he's black. (Is Quentin sure that the pimp isn't his alter-ego?) The pimp kicks Clarence's ass and spits out lines during the beating like "He musta thought it was 'white boy day'". But Clarence comes to and kills the pimp and then accidentally steals a suitcase full of cocaine that belongs to a mobster (Christopher Walken) and splits town with Alabama.

This movie is a spoof of all the "cops and couples" movies, such as BONNIE AND CLYDE. It's a lot of fun, mainly because the actors seem to be having a blast. Brad Pitt has a brief cameo playing what appears to be the 'love child' of Jay and Silent Bob (he looks like Jay, but speaks like Bob).

This movie won't change your life, but it'll make your day a 'white boy day'!
