Summary:

THE WASH is a black exploitation comedy starring famous rappers Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg in a movie about two pot-smoking young friends who must work together to free their kidnapped boss. Were it not for George Wallace’s comical screen presence, this foul-mouthed, vulgar urban comedy would be completely useless.

Review:

THE WASH is a black exploitation comedy starring famous rappers Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg in a movie about two pot-smoking young men, Sean and Dee Loc. Dee Loc sets up Sean with a job interview at the car wash where Dee Loc works. The owner, Mr. Washington, played by funnyman George Wallace, is taken by Sean’s assertiveness, and appoints him manager. This causes a conflict between the two friends, because Dee Loc is a conceited, lazy slob who only cares about sex and marijuana. When a gang of thugs kidnaps Mr. Washington, the two men must work together to save their boss.

Were it not for George Wallace’s comical screen presence, THE WASH would be a completely useless urban comedy. As it is, the movie is full of sexual immorality, strong foul language and an inappropriate drug message. It also includes some brief female nudity. THE WASH is a perfect example of why the rap music scene is not something you want your children and teenagers to get involved in or to duplicate. Music should enrich the lives of you and your family members, not degrade them with sex, drugs, vulgarity, and other rebellious behavior.
