As Carl Black gets the opportunity to move his family out of Chicago in hope of a better life, their arrival in Beverly Hills is timed with that city's annual purge, where all crime is legal for twelve hours.
An actor limited to stereotypical roles because of his ethnicity, dreams of making it big as a highly respected performer. As he makes his rounds, the film takes a satiric look at African American actors in Hollywood.

A coming of age comedy/drama for the post hip hop generation. Malcolm is a geek, carefully surviving life in The Bottoms, a tough neighborhood in Inglewood, CA filled with gangsters and drug dealers, while juggling his senior year of college applications, interviews and the SAT. His dream is to attend Harvard. A chance invitation to a big underground party leads Malcolm and his friends into an "only in Los Angeles" gritty adventure filled with offbeat characters and bad choices. If Malcolm can persevere, he'll go from being a geek, to being dope, to ultimately being himself.
According to Tony Revolori, all the weed used in the movie was real. See more »

So the other night my friend was sleeping over and he fell asleep. So I decided to order a movie and watch it. I ordered DOPE because it got really good reviews and lots of praise. But this movie was nothing spectacular at all. By the end I was just kinda confused and shocked that so many people look at this as a great film. First off, the love interest between the main character and the girl is very lame and underdeveloped. It almost seemed forced in a week before the films release. The supporting cast is awful. The main kids two friends are extremely bad actors and very generic. They offer nothing the whole movie. The plot is pretty bland as well. A straight a kid becomes a drug dealer. That's it. They also introduce characters that are never explained. The principal of the schools son is being confronted by the police in a scene and they never explain what happened to him. They never explain the gang members chasing the kid in the beginning. And the ending seems very rushed. The jokes are terrible. I didn't even crack a smile the whole movie. And I typically laugh at everything. Its just a bland, overrated, unfunny movie.
