** Blankman's ElaborateUndergroundBase-slash-lab is ''[[RecycledSet the very same base-slash-lab]]'' that Film/{{Darkman}} used in the DirectToVideo sequels starring Arnold Vosloo.

The cast is soon rounded by a {{love interest|s}} to both brothers, television reporter Kimberly Johns (Robin Givens). The press dubs Darryl as "Blankman." At first, Blankman is merely helping civilians and facing various thugs, but then takes his first high-profile case: Minelli's gang has taken [[spoiler:Mayor Harris]] hostage in a bank, threatening to detonate explosives if their terms are not met. Blankman intervenes, sends the gang running...[[spoiler:but fails to disarm the explosives. The popular Mayor is killed, the bank is destroyed and Blankman barely escapes with his life]].

* RealityEnsues: During the bank robbery scene it paints a tragic picture of how ill-equipped Darryl is in handling a hostage crisis. Especially when you're just an ordinary guy with no experience in defusing a bomb.

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).

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Averted by Blankman. Not only is he about to faint when Kimberly kisses him, but when he heroically proclaims his intentions to make the world a safer place for his children, Kevin observes:
-->'''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.
