Here’s what we’ve heard about this film…

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: (from the producer) In the 1970s, Jimmy Bones (Snoop Dogg) is a legendary protector and patron of his thriving neighborhood. Cool, handsome and respected—Bones is the benevolent caretaker of his people until he is betrayed by those closest to him. Flash forward 20 years—Crime and drugs have crumbled the neighborhood and Bones has become a charismatic emblem of better times. But his spirit is about to make a comeback.

Negative—What a load of violent, drug drenched, filthy language filled DIRTY BUNKIS! I hated this film with every fiber of my being. I cannot believe that the MPAA gave this an R rating. It should have received an NC-17 at least. This is not a movie you want your teens to see, you do not want them exposed to this. …I will never go to another one of Snoopy Dogg’s films. I thought he would actually have some acting ability in him. I must’ve thought wrong… Stay far away, you are missing nothing.

Comments from young people
A girl in this show is into Satanic rituals and performs a séance with a picture of Christ behind her. She also plays around with tarot cards. One girls mother believes that their is a world for the undead. A bare chested woman is straddled by her boyfriend, a girl is shown wearing only her thong, an art class paints nude portraits, the bad guy in the movie changes into a girl to seduce a victim, and the spirit of a girl’s FATHER fondles her in a bed! This was very sick. There is tons of gore in this movie. It was repulsive! Decapitated bodies, graphic knifings, etc. God’s name is used in vain and there are over 90 f-words. Characters are shown doing drugs or planning on it several times and the music in it is your typical filthy gangsta rap. This was a sick movie in every way!
