Critic Reviews for Trick Baby

All Critics (3)

[The filmmakers] have watered down, misadapted and ultimately messed up Iceberg Slim's original work.

December 13, 2021 | Full Review…

This wasn't the standard "pimp and ho show" but rather a smart, character based crime flick about two hustlers just trying to survive in the City of Brotherly Love.

October 1, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This confidence drama set on the streets of Philadelphia is charged with issues of race, racism, family, and trust in ways that no other blaxploitation film touches on.
