Movie Info

Recording star and rapper Master P is the executive producer, screenwriter, and co-star (with A.J. Johnson of The Players Club) of this comedy about two South Central Los Angeles scam artists operating a business in a vacant lot. Working out of their van, Black (Master P) and Blue (Johnson) deal in TV sets and boomboxes, but when a driver mistakenly drops off a cell phone shipment, Black and Blue are ready to dial "C" for cash, bringing in both a local hacker (Anthony Boswell) and sexy Sweet Lorraine (Gretchen Palmer). Business is on the upswing, but then a hood (Tommy "Tiny" Lister Jr.) has a deal go sour and blames Black and Blue. A phone security man (Frantz Turner) and the FBI are also closing in. Rapper Ice Cube does a cameo.

Critic Reviews for I Got The Hook-Up

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

A waste of time.

January 1, 2000
Top Critic

Slipshod storytelling, junior high-level acting and direction that resembles Aunt Gertrude's home movies.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 1/4

Just rambles around loudly, making little sense, before winding to a close.

April 3, 2005 | Rating: 1/5

You could get as many laughs staying home and listening to a dial tone for 90 minutes.

January 1, 2000 | Full Review…

This is the type of movie that, if you manage to get in for free, you still want your money back.
