Scarred for Life
Ask twenty rappers what their favorite film is, and youll get the same answer over and over again: Brian De Palmas Scarface, 1983s bleak snow globe of a movie written by Oliver Stone in the midst of a yayo hangover. The film recalls a flurry of iconic images that speak directly to Miamis seamy history. According to the Just the Funny improv comedy troupe, no film is more ideal for parody. Howl with laughter at the debut of its Directors Cut series, which begins with a ribald ribbing of Scarface. Though the audience is encouraged to bring props, founding member David Christopher assures the cast is well prepared for this particular challenge. We have our own cocaine. It isnt real, but I wont tell you whats in it. We have the M-16, the bling, the Hawaiian shirts ... were ready, he laughs. Snicker at Scarface tonight at 9:00 or later at 11:00 at the Miami Museum of Science and Planetarium. Tickets range from five to ten dollars. Call 305-693-8669, or visit www.justthefunny.com.
