House Party (Netflix streaming):

Kid decides to go to his friend Play’s house party, but neither of them can predict what’s in store for them on what could be the wildest night of their lives. Stars Kid’N’Play, a rather successful rap duo in the late 80s/early 90s. Clean cut rappers, barely swore at all, non-gangsta pop rap, I guess one could say.

Was feeling nostalgic tonight, so re-watched this after MANY years. As many movies go, it doesn’t hold up in the styles/pop culture norms (what were people thinking with those hairstyles and outfits?! ;) ). BUT, it did touch on some cultural stuff that is still relevant today. Additionally, before the awesome 8 Mile rap battle finale, there was the House Party rap battle, which is just as good (style is different, but the back and forth is above and beyond).

I will admit, without resistance, the sequels sucked, but this one is indeed a classic. Plus, George Clinton said one of the best tough guy lines:

George Clinton: [after hitting Stab across the Head] Yeah, I did it, I might cry two tears in a bucket. F* it. Let’s take it to the stage.
