        I thought it was pretty realistic. I don’t like many movies but this pretty good. Ex Steve Martin playing a big shot Producer gets shot in the leg out of the blue as he was getting into his car by a random thug. The rest of the movie he was hobbled and very injured from the random attack. Heck, most movies if you get shot and not killed you are better by the next scene.

        I don't believe anything that 'professional' reviewers say any more, and at least
        half the public is too brainwashed to give an unbiased opinion about anything.
        Heck, hundreds of millions feel rap is music. ;^)

    In the late 70s I went to Bedford-Stuyvesant to take a test to get into a science oriented high school. I clearly remember this primarily because I was the only white person in a sea of black people with occasional pockets of asians. It was a very odd sensation and I was relieved when my step-dad, who was planning to leave and come back after the test was complete, exited the car and stood next to me.

    The city block of kids and parents, perhaps 98% black, 1.5% asian was not in anyway unruly or threatening.

    In the end I tested 87% but it wasn't enough to gain entry.

      I actually don't remember any rocks actually hitting my car (a VW bug at that time)--but I seem to remember an empty can thrown in my direction, some people shouting at me.
