It's a shame, though, that the movie also features stereotyped or retrograde attitudes towards Jewish, gay, and female characters. Perhaps Van Peebles' kids could school their dad on the virtues of across-the-board respect. show more
Despite the filmmaker's obvious good intentions in trying to impart valuable life lessons to younger viewers, We the Party suffers from any number of problems, including uneven acting (talent isn't always hereditary); stereotypical characters and situations; and a manic visual style featuring the sort of split-screen obsession that felt outdated decades ago. show more
Despite its flashy cinematography and colorful sets, it contains a great deal that is serious about growing up in America today. show more

I caught a screening of this at USC. I was pretty excited because I like YG, the New Boyz and Snoop. The music was awesome and the acting was better than I expected. Director/Producer/Writer Mario Van Peebles pushes the idea that smart is the new gangster, and as lame as that sounds, it works here. I doubt this will win any awards, but the message is solid and it\'s a fun movie. It\'s definitely for a younger audience, but for what it is, it\'s great. At times the dialogue can be a little preachy and the action predictable, but somehow I was perpetually interested in what was going on. The pressures of high school are something everyone can relate to as is the partying life of a high-schooler. It\'s not hard to have fun at this movie.
