Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 06/01/2004
"[T]he beauty of BAADASSSSS! is the way Mario Van Peebles salutes his father's truth by coaxing it into legend."
New York Times - 05/28/2004
"It's a funny, plausible account of the daily disasters, financial shortfalls and hastily improvised solutions that shape most independent films."
USA Today - 05/28/2004
"[A]n entertaining movie....[I]t's a blisteringly paced look at filmmaking on the fringes."
Los Angeles Times - 05/28/2004
"Mario Van Peebles has done his parent proud and in the process has made his most accomplished film to date....Terrific fun."
Sight and Sound - 06/01/2005
"The story itself is remarkable and Mario presents it with a vivid and textured mix of dramatic interpretation and documentary material..."
Uncut - 07/01/2005
"A magnificent, insightful film about film-making, it deserves to be ranked among the best of the genre..."
