The Wayans brothers make bad movies. They're not particularly funny or well put together. Look at reviews for pretty much everything they've done and you'll see a trail of bad comments. This movie is no exception. While the concept was somewhat interesting -- an idiot savant ghetto kid who wants to be Batman -- it just didn't have a very deep structure to it and was too fluffy to be anything more than a waste of time. When the Wayans appear in other movies (say, "Requiem for a Dream") they're fine, but not in their own work. And then we get Jason Alexander thrown in here and just confusing me more. Was he funny or just a poor cardboard cut-out of a sensational journalist? I'm not sure.

This eventually gives "Darryl" the idea to become a masked superhero like "Batman" using his inventions that are made from home appliances.
Naming himself "Blankman", "Darryl" gets …
