"...[Moore] delivers his particular brand of humor forcefully..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Petey Wheatstraw (Rudy Ray Moore) was born during a tropical storm, and from the moment he took his first breath he could walk, talk and kick ass. He grows up to become a famous comedian - so famous that his rivals (Leroy and Skillet) can't handle the competition and plan to do Petey in. When Petey is killed in a drive-by, Lucifer (G. Tito Shaw) offers Petey his life back, along with unearthly powers, if he will marry the Devil's hideous daughter (Eboni Wryte) and produce a son. Petey agrees to the deal but has other plans. The first order of business is to use his new powers to settle the score with Leroy and Skillet. He then looks for a way to escape the Devil's clutches, because Petey Wheatstraw is nobody's fool - not even the Devil's...or is he?
Petey Wheatstraw is one baddass dude--he's in so deep he has to cut a deal with the Devil just to see the light of day. DOLEMITE'S Rudy Ray Moore stars in this Faustian action flick.
