YMMV: Boyz n the Hood

  • Anvilicious: Furious' lecture on the dynamics of property value.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The depiction of 'hood life is very realistic, and in several cases highly disturbing.
  • Signature Scene: Ricky's death.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: "One out of every twenty-one Black American males will be murdered in their lifetime", followed by "Most will die at the hands of another Black male." All this is played over the sounds of arguing, gunshots, children screaming, and one child crying, "They shot my brother!" Cue the opening shot of a STOP sign.
  • What an Idiot: Ricky, you're a cool dude and all but, when guys are stalking you for a drive by shooting, that is not the time to take a pee break and stroll and scratch your lotto card.
