YMMV / Boyz n the Hood

  • Anvilicious: Furious' lecture on the dynamics of property value.
  • It Was His Sled: Ricky is killed in a drive-by.
  • 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. All of this as a note on how the Wretched Hive neighborhoods of Los Angeles have adverse effects on the impoverished African-American habitants.
  • 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 stop and take a leak and before casually scratching your lotto card.
