Now in high definition: Don't Be A Menace... is a parody of the popular "hood" movies made by African-American directors in the '90s; in particular John Singleton's Boyz 'N the Hood and the Hughes Brothers' Menace II Society are the recipients of some big-time lampooning! The plot focuses on Ashtray, a do-gooder who comes to South Central L.A. to live with his father. Unfortunately, Dad turns out to be a poor role model, as he extols the virtues of unsafe sex and drunk driving. Ashtray's cousin Loc Dog is no better, with his hair-trigger temper and extensive weaponry (including a nuclear bomb). Ashtray manages to find romance with a pretty poet named Dashiki, but it turns out that she's a little too popular with the men in her neighborhood - and not for her writing skills. Will Ashtray become disillusioned by what he's seen and experienced in South Central? Suitable for 18 years and over. Not for sale to persons under age 18.
