[4] It’s always interesting to note how Mel Brooks can get away with things, such as The Hitler Rap, because he’s Jewish. Similarly with Wayans, director, star & writer of IGGYS – no white man would dare stage a “Pimp of the Year” contest, featuring a poem called Ma Bitch Better Have Ma Money! The film parodies the blaxploitation movies like Shaft, but you don’t need to be black or know anything of the films to find this broad, Airplane style spoof funny; platform shoes with live goldfish in them are bizarre enough to make anyone laugh. Wayans resembles Eddie Murphy a little, tho’ fortunately he knows there is more to comedy than saying ‘fuck’ every second sentence. Spike Lee with a sense of humour.
