Darryl Walker (Damon Wayans) is an appliance repairman with a [[GadgeteerGenius gift for inventing]] but has a tendency [[WideEyedIdealist to observe life through rose-colored glasses]], failing to notice the urban decay, political corruption and police indifference surrounding him (not even realizing that his flat is right next door to a crackhouse), in stark contrast to politically active Grandma Walker ([[Series/WhereInTheWorldIsCarmenSandiego Lynne Thigpen]]), his own grandmother. Grandma is a key figure in the political campaign of mayoral candidate Marvin Harris (Christopher Lawford), who is running on an anti-corruption platform; this results in Grandma's assassination by order of local mob boss Michael "The Suit" Minelli (Jon Polito).

-->'''Kevin:''' Your children? You've got to be with a '''woman''' first! You've got to knock some boots, man! You're a virgin!

* NotReallyABirthScene: Blankman and his cousin Kevin help a woman trapped in an elevator to give birth. All three are screaming loudly as this happens, though. The woman, for obvious reasons, Kevin, because when he offered his hand to the woman, she grabbed his crotch instead and squeezed as hard as she could, and Blankman because, well... he's a bit of a dork who doesn't really know what's going on.
