Meet the Blacks

A sloppy assemblage of tasteless jokes, rampant profanity and lewd sexual behavior comprises this wretched comedy, directed and co-written by Deon Taylor. An African-American family relocates from Chicago to an all-white gated community in Beverly Hills, California. The patriarch (Mike Epps) hopes for a better life for his wife (Zulay Henao) and kids (Bresha Webb, Alex Henderson). But, unbeknownst to them, he's also running away from a string of unpaid debts and spurned lovers in the Windy City. In a comic take on the horror franchise that began with 2013's "The Purge," the clan is soon under siege from gun-toting neighbors and angry creditors, all taking advantage of an annual 12-hour event during which any crime may be committed with impunity.

Watch out for: Bloody violence, strong sexual content, including scenes of masturbation, drug use, pervasive profane, rough and crude language.

Rated: O, morally offensive; MPAA: R
