Plot Summary

Rushon (Tommy Davidson) is a mild-mannered Buppie who has been going out with his girlfriend Nikki (Tamala Jones) for about seven weeks; they seem to like each other well enough, but the relationship has been mainly platonic, and Nikki isn’t so sure that she wants that to change. Rushon asks Nikki out to dinner, but Nikki wants to bring along her tart-tongued friend Lysterine (Viveca A. Fox). Rushon has to find a date for her, and he comes up with his rude-boy buddy Bunz (Jamie Foxx). Lysterine and Bunz soon hit it off, and, to Rushon’s surprise, Nikki decides it’s time for their relationship to move to the physical level. Only one problem: this is the ’90s, and all parties involved want to be sure they’re practicing safe sex. Which means Rushon and Bunz have to find some condoms fast, before the evening’s mood evaporates.

Reviews

Although the movie is a wall-to-wall exercise in bad taste, it somehow retains a certain innocence; it challenges and sometimes shocks, but for me at least it didn’t offend, because its motives were so obviously good-hearted. – Chicago Sun-Times

Booty Call isn’t a source of nonstop laughs, and there are a lot of gags that fall flat, but, on those sporadic occasions when something works, the result can be hilarious. – ReelViews
