When I watched this movie on VHS, the cover billed it as starring Ice-T, Coolio, and Warwick Davis in that order. This movie may as well be retitled Waiting For Coolio. He doesn't show up until the very end, and all he does is pop into the church to check out the rappers' show. Coolio doesn't have any lines, one of the rappers just says "Look man, it's Coolio!" while Coolio looks around. That's all the Coolio we see, and for that he gets second billing. This has never been said about anyone ever, but Warwick Davis would do well to hire Coolio's agent.

I watched this in the week and was heavily inspired to include some of my favourite moments into the poster as well as give it a late '90's hip hop album cover style. The all too eager cross dressing, the baseball bat in the afro, the Leprechaun's finest limerick yet, the middle aged white pimp A&R VP and Coolio's speechless cameo. Thanks HDTGM for putting me onto this gem.
