Would You Go See A ‘B*A*P*S’ Sequel? Director Robert Townsend Poses The Question

Comedy News

With each passing day, it seems like remakes of old properties are materializing out of the ether like clockwork and taking over our television screens and movie theaters. So, what about a sequel to the 1997 comedy B*A*P*S? 

This is the question The Five Heartbeats director Robert Townsend posed to Twitter users on Tuesday.

For those unfamiliar, the film starred Halle Berry and Natalie Desselle Reid as Nisi and Mickey, two waitresses in a Decatur soul food joint, who find themselves on the estate of a wealthy billionaire after flying out to Los Angeles for a music video audition. B*A*P*S received overwhelmingly negative reviews upon its initial release, with revered critic Roger Ebert calling it “jaw-droppingly bad.” But over the past two decades, it has since gone on to became a cult classic among Black audiences.

Overall, by the looks of things, the response to Townsend’s Twitter question have been mixed. Some expressed enthusiasm at a B*A*P*S sequel:
