The Breaks ★ 1999 (R)

White Irish kid gets adopted by a black family in South Central L.A. and naturally grows up to think of himself as a homeboy. But his adoptive mom is tired of his shenanigans and gives him one simple task to do—bring home a carton of milk by supper—or else. Why isn't this as easy as it sounds ('cause it certainly is as dumb). 86m/C VHS, DVD . Mitch Mullany, Carl Anthony Payne II, Paula Jai Parker, Clifton Powell, Loretta Devine; D: Eric Meza; W: Mitch Mullany; C: Carlos Gonzalez; M: Adam Hirsh. VIDEO
