CB4: The Movie

CB4: The Movie ★½ 1993 (R)

Falling somewhere between a serious attempt and parody, CB4 tries to do both and succeeds at neither. Written in the key of “Wayne's World” by “Saturday Night Live's” Rock, it starts out as a “rockumentary” (please refer to “This is Spinal Tap”), but quickly turns into a sitcom after two gangsta rap friends assume the identity of a local club owner when he is in jail. Hartman, also of SNL, appears as a rightwing city councilman. Chock full of violence, sexism, and profanity tucked into a wandering plot. 83m/C VHS, DVD . Chris Rock, Allen Payne, Deezer D, Phil Hartman, Charlie (Charles Q.) Murphy, Khandi Alexander, Art Evans, Chris Elliott, Willard Pugh, Theresa Randle; D: Tamra Davis; W: Chris Rock, Nelson George, Robert Locash; M: John Barnes.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
