If you are familiar with the Purge movies well this is the parody movie you have been waiting for.

Even if you have not watched the Purge the references would still translate into humour quiet easily.

When some unexpected money comes his way, Carl Black (Mike Epps) moves his family from cold and windy Chicago to bright and sunny Beverly Hills, Calif. As the Blacks settle into their beautiful new home, they start to notice some strange behavior in the neighborhood. Nighttime is approaching, and President El Bama (George Lopez) announces that the annual purge is about to begin. Carl and his loved ones must now endure a 12-hour period of lawlessness before they can enjoy life once again.

It’s a light-hearted spoof trying to recapture the comedic success of the Scary Movie franchise. This one is for the fans of parody movies so let go of all logical sense and plot-line before entering this over the top story. There are hints of social commentary but it does not overpower the rolling skits.
