-- Grounded by his well-meaning dad (Robin Harris), a black, middle-class teenager (Christopher Reid) is determined to attend a pal's house party. Black director Reginald Hudlin plays up the comic obstacles that get in the way, including a gang of toughs and some buffoonish white cops. Though this growing-pains comedy has a clear anti-drug and alcohol message, it also implies that the kids are sexually active. Nonstop rough language with much sexually explicit dialogue and black rap, some bathroom humor and incidental cartoon violence. (A-IV) (R)
