Happy 30th anniversary to Hollywood Shuffle, co-writer, director and star Robert Townsend's keen and hilarious satire of racial stereotyping in the film industry, which is reflected by the main character Bobby Taylor (Townsend), an aspiring actor working at a dead-end job at a hot dog stand called Winky Dinky Dog who dreams of making it big. So, he auditions for, and eventually wins, the lead role of a pimp in a blaxploitation gang film called "Jivetime Jimmy's Revenge". Throughout the film his determination of making as an actor and proving naysayers (like his co-workers) wrong combined with his second guess of playing a demeaning role are represented through a series of conflicting yet entertaining vignettes that acts as mental roadblocks. In these vignettes, views himself as a actor playing a slave discussing the perks of playing other stereotypical, slang-throwing roles like a gang member, prisoner or pimp; an audition where he is told by casting directors that they need a "Eddie Murphy-type"; the lead of a film noir; and a urban film critic that speaks to the average Black moviegoer. Based on Townsend's own experience as a Black actor who was told that he was not "Black-enough" for any role, he and Keenan Ivory Wayans crafted a topical, razor-sharp and fundamentally sound script about the Hollywood's marginalization of Black entertainers that still rings true after three decades and generates big laughs from the skits, and core scenes as well, parodying all facets of the industry that me as a Black person can relate to, shake my head and laugh at the bullshit roles these actors portray. Hollywood Shuffle is still a crowning achievement from Townsend that is both informative and funny. #hollywoodshuffle #roberttownsend #comedies #satire #blackstereotypes #cultclassic #ibegotnoweapon #gimmiemyactivatorman #theresworkatthepostoffice #winkydinkydog #blackactingschool #dothejhericurl #winkydinkyhocake #jimmymymainman #keenanivorywayans #johnwitherspoon #annemariejohnson #jimmywoodard #damonwayans #helenmartin #grandlbush #rustycundieff #domirrera #1987movies #80smovies #samuelgoldwyncompany
