The Wash

Critics Consensus

Sloppily-made, amateurish, and scarce on laughs, The Wash can't compare to Richard Pryor's 1976 Car Wash.

Movie Info

This throwback to the frolicsome comedies of the 1970s is from writer/director D.J. Pooh, creator of Friday (1995) and 3 Strikes (2000). Dr. Dre stars as Sean, who's financially strapped and on the verge of losing his home and his car until his roommate Dee Loc Snoop Dogg suggests he join him as an employee at the local car wash. Tensions mount between the pals when the establishment's eccentric owner Mr. Washington (George Wallace) promotes the more mature and responsible Sean over Dee Loc, and Sean is subsequently forced to crack down on his scamming buddy's side hustles and locker room assignations with female co-workers. When their boss is kidnapped, however, Sean and Dee Loc must work together to save their employer, their jobs, and their friendship. Angell Conwell and Tom "Tiny" Lister Jr. co-star in this urban farce flavored with a hip-hop soundtrack.

Audience Reviews for The Wash

  • Nov 27, 2011
    A boring and poorly-made movie on all fronts scarce on legitimate humour. The only appeal is the collection of hip-hop stars that appear including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Xzibit, Ludacris, and even, Shaquille O'Neal. Despite this, the plot doesn't seem to be going anywhere for the longest time and you will find yourself very disinterested early-on. The acting is nothing special and the direction is sloppy. Coming from a big fan of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's music, the movie is an overall mess that isn't good at any one aspect to keep you entertained.
