Blankman ★★ 1994 (PG-13)

Self-appointed superhero (Wayans), who makes up in creativity what he lacks in superpowers, fights crime in his underwear and a cape made from his grandmother's bathrobe. Life is simple, until an ambitious TV reporter (Givens) finds out about him. Silly one-joke premise is carried a little too far; didn't similar “Meteor Man” crash? Gifted comedian Wayans tries, but can't make this guy fly. 96m/C VHS, DVD . Damon Wayans, Robin Givens, David Alan Grier, Jason Alexander, Jon Polito, Nick(y) Corello; D: Mike Binder; W: J.F. Lawton, Damon Wayans; C: Newton Thomas (Tom) Sigel; M: Miles Goodman.
