B.A.P.S is a comedy film about two waitresses who move to Los Angeles for a music-video audition to raise money to support their dream of building a hair salon with a soul food restaurant. Instead of becoming dancers, they meet Mr. Blakemore a millionaire who at first they want to scam. Despite their differences, in the end the two waitresses create a tight relationship with Mr. Blakemore and and his butler.
The film is directed by Robert Townsend and written by Troy Beyer. Halle Berry and Natalie Desselle star in the movie as the black American princesses Nisi and Mickey. The film also stars Martin Landau and Ian Richardson.
The film shows black women’s versatility in fashion, hair, and culture! Nisi and Mickey have long 8-inch nails, gold teeth, sparkle, and hairpieces that are so high on their heads. The movie is funny and definitely a classic, so we’re happy it is coming to Netflix!
