Booty Call

Why try to be coy by titling your movie "Booty Call" when you could just be direct and call it "Bitch Quest" or "Beaver Hunt"?

Why try to be coy by titling your movie "Booty Call" when you could just be direct and call it "Bitch Quest" or "Beaver Hunt"? On the most innocent level, the euphemism refers to the male desire for female companionship. Literally, the words define a situation whereby one's rear-end issues a clarion update of the state of the digestive system. Since "booty call" is used by men in reference to women it also means, essentially, that women talk out of their asses. Toss in two characters named Bunz (Jamie Foxx) and Lysterine (Vivica A. Fox) and you have a subtext with a lot of unseemly possibilities.

The booty call comes for Bunz and his pal, Rushon (Tommy Davidson), when they go out with Rushon's girlfriend, Nikki (Tamala Jones), and her pal, Lysterine. Since after seven weeks of dating, Nikki has given no nooky, Rushon is a little dismayed and wants things to go well so he'll score.

The film's central comedic premise is that when everybody starts getting down to it, there are no condoms to be found. So Rushon and Bunz venture out in search of condoms and various other protective aids. To further enhance this inspired piece of comedic genius, Rushon and Bunz frequent a drug store owned by Indians so that we can hear them uses words like "blow job" and "cootchy" in that cute accent.

The whole condom search looks more like something that should be narrated by Robert Stack as a public service announcement than a bit in a feature film. At this point, "Booty Call" essentially comes to a screeching halt, and, like every character in the film, we're left cold, annoyed and unfulfilled.
