Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In many respects this is a black counterpart to The Naked Gun, and very nearly as funny; the bounty of antimacho gags is both unexpected and refreshing."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Although, like all good satires, it is cheerfully willing to be offensive, it is almost completely incapable of being funny."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Keenan Ivory Wayans offers his fan base probably the only funny film he's ever directed."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"You'll need to visit a doctor after it....to put back together your split-sides!"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Probably an hour's worth of funny in a 90-minute movie."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"The greatest pleasure comes from seeing '70s veterans send themselves up."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"It's not that Wayans lacks wit, it's that he's stomped it to death."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Unrelenting, unremitting, a brilliant broad-brush of a parody."
‑ Lesli Goff, Empire Magazine
"Keenen Ivory Wayans' best film ever."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"The idea is swamped by the execution."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"I'm Gonna Git You Sucka is a lively but uncertain mixture of nostalgia, silliness and genuinely unpredictable humor."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Wayans' choosing to play romantic lead seems more narcissistic than smartly comic (watch him unleash those built biceps once too often); he lacks an unidentifiable shtick."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"In offering up this affectionate parody of the old movies, Wayans also turns a satiric eye on black culture in general -- but in an inoffensive, lighthearted manner."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"There's something ungrateful going on under the surface"
‑ Bill Chambers, Film Freak Central
"Since we are dealing with parody here, every aspect of black communities is open territory for Wayans' brand of humour."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Apollo Guide
