YMMV / Notorious (2009)

Go To

  • Funny Moments: Biggie calling out his teacher by comparing the latter's salary to a garbage worker's. A few seconds after Biggie is kicked out of the class for this, he does a little dance, causing the class to erupt in laughter (also an In-Universe example).
  • Jerkass Woobie: Biggie in a select scenes, such as getting kicked out of his mom's house and dealing with his mother's breast cancer diagnosis.

  • The Woobie: Lil' Kim and Faith Evans.
  • What The Hell, Casting Agency?: Anthony Mackie being cast as Tupac Shakur was not well received by fans or critics, and led to a round of jokes referencing 8 Mile, which Mackie previously starred in. Tellingly, when All Eyez on Me finally went into production, the producers went through pains to find someone who actually looked like Tupac.
