Move over, Superman!
Robert Townsend (Hollywood Shuffle) leads an all-star cast including Marla Gibbs, Eddie Griffin, Robert Guillaume, James Earl Jones and Bill Cosby in this laugh-out-loud, feel-good comic fantasy about a reluctant superhero on a crusade to save his neighborhood.
Move over, Superman! Spineless Jefferson Reed (Robert Townsend) has just discovered his backbone...and it's stronger than steel! A mild-mannered substitute teacher, Jefferson would rather run than fight...until he's hit by a strange green meteor that gives him superhuman abilities. And when a gang led by a powerful drug lord begins terrorizing his family and neighbors, Jefferson has no choice but to don his homemade spandex suit and take them on in a war of cunning, wit...and super-powered super-modeling prowess...to save his 'hood!
