Dope – 3.5 stars


A smart, kinetic re-imagining of Risky Business, except instead of Joel from the tony suburbs of Chicago, we get Malcolm, a geek from the decidedly tougher “the Bottoms” of Inglewood.  A lot of good laughs and a few inspired set pieces.  Unfortunately, it shoots itself in the foot at the end with some clunky, preachy Spike Lee homily.  Shame.
