One is a two-bit drug dealer and stoner content with his life (until he's mugged of $1,500 owed to his provider). Another is an ambitious guy who'll do anything for a buck (and pretty soon has to when his hot girlfriend gets pregnant). A third is, well, I just finished watching the movie and I've forgotten what he was supposed to be.
Replete with drugs, guns, ho's, and a Z in its title, Road Dogz fails to distinguish itself as anything more than a second-rate, urban "message" movie, and it's unclear if it even aims to be anything more than this to start with. I presume there's an audience out there that will identify with this movie... but to be honest, it doesn't seem like the "Friday night at Blockbuster" type to me.
