Pals Pete and Lanny are convinced they have the goods needed to become "gangsta rappers," despite their white, suburban background. What they don't have, however, is the $10,000 needed for a studio recording session, so the would-be "hoodiez" set off on a crime spree that they hope will give them the cash and the street cred. Hilarious spoof, based on writer/director Jonathan Figg's 1998 short film "The Brothers," stars Joachim Wiese and John Tindall, with cameos by Ludacris, Cindy Margolis, Shaquille O'Neal, and Vanilla Ice. 89 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English, Spanish; photo gallery.
