16. THICKER THAN WATER (1999)
Starring: Mack 10, Fat Joe, Ice Cube, MC Eiht, Big Pun, Krayzie Bone, Flesh-N-Bone, Bad Azz
Why it sucks: Unless you were once a Westside Connection fanatic, chances are that you’ve never even heard of Thicker Than Water, the massively unsuccessful acting debut of Fat Joe and inexplicable leading man vehicle for Mack 10. That’s right, Mack 10—a guy who was never more than second fiddle in his own group.
Mack and Joey Crack play rival gang members in L.A. that share a mutual dream: They both want to become hit-making music producers. But on their ways to becoming the next Dr. Dre and DJ Quik, urban warfare erupts, which leads to scenes of laughable emoting and monologues overflowing with cuss words and N-bombs. And, yes, tragedy strikes, though the real calamity awaits anyone brave enough to sit through this inept Overweight Boyz N The Hood.
