The Wash ★★ 2001 (R)

Sean (Dre) loses his job and has his car booted, so pal Dee Loc (Snoop Dogg) helps him out with some news about an opening at the car wash where he works. Soon Sean is assistant manager under crusty owner Mr. Washington (Wallace). Between dealing with the resentment of Loc, and the kidnapping of the boss, along with the usual supply of quirky characters and subplots, Sean has his hands full in this very laid-back, low-key tribute to 1977's “Car Wash.” Appealling performances, moments of inspired comedy, and plenty of cameos to watch for make this a pleasant way to kill some time. 96m/C VHS, DVD .

Kinchen, Demetrius Navarro, Thomas Chong, Pauly Shore, Lamont Bentley, Bruce Bruce, Shari Watson, Shawn Fonteno, Angell Conwell; D: DJ Pooh; W: DJ Pooh; C: Keith L. Smith.
