They will never be highly rated among white people b/c some of them just don't get "us" and "our" humor...

Old white movie critics ain't checking for those types of films unfortunately...

I/A with Trill I don't think they get us nor do I think they care too.
I guess they like what they like. Personally I liked The Wiz more than I liked The Wizard of Oz so we all have our preferences I guess.

All of my YT friends LOVE Friday though..they know all the lines too which surprised me because some of them are straight up rednecks.

Theres no hate. Lol. 
They know good movies when they see them. I agree with their list.
It has nothing to do with "white" humor or "black" humor.
It has to do with the overall movie. 


And critics are hardly ever spot on about movies.

ITA.  There is humor/sentiment/cultural perspective that they don't get and won't get and for most of us that is what makes the movie so great....we can relate. Usually they can't. 
 
And I'm sorry-- I love Friday, but in NO WAY would I say it's better than Coming to America.  I never tire of watching coming to America, but I might actually NOT watch Friday depending on my mood.  Maybe it's just me.

Yes they are bc theyre not rated by us. We are not the majority  of the critics. Hell they even rated "For colored girls" horribly based on the shortening of the name, when it should be nominated rfor an oscar. If it was an all white movie it wouldve had rave reviews

I'm watching Life right now for the first time and I honestly think that it's my new favorite comedy. It has EVERYTHING! Hysterical laughs, sadness, racism, triumph...if the mainstream can't relate then boo on them. I think that a lot of THEIR productions are grossly overrated.

I'm glad they don't get it.
It's not for them to get.
