Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This irreverent series, with all the crude humor expected from a Jamie Foxx-produced comedy series, has a fresh willingness to poke fun at controversial issues, creating space in the story for moments of insight. Pharaoh's quick-talking delivery, along with great performances by folks like Michael Rapaport and Peter King, and of course, Jamie Foxx, are what tie it all together.

Not everyone will be comfortable with some of the humor presented here. But for those who like the style, there are a fair share of funny moments. But what makes White Famous compelling is the fact that it openly and bluntly addresses questions about how Hollywood views people of color, and the kinds of compromises people of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds often have to make in order to make it in the industry.
