OUR RATING: ★★★★☆
Netflix sci-fi mystery comedy directed and co-written by Juel Taylor. In They Cloned Tyrone (2023) a series of eerie events thrusts an unlikely trio, Fontaine (John Boyega), Yo-Yo (Teyonah Parris), and Slick Charles (Jamie Foxx), onto the trail of a nefarious government conspiracy.
Fontaine: Man, you hit my car, bruh.
Crutches: You broke my m**herf***ing leg.
Fontaine: Man, how you going to make it to the league now?
Fontaine: [to Big Moss] You look like you about to pass out. Go in that damn kitchen and get some damn juice. Represent yourself in the best way, man.
Yo-Yo: I ain’t got to deal with none of this s**t. You ain’t nothing but a habitual line-stepping, Jedi-mind-tricking m**herf***er, and I ain’t got to deal with it!
Slick Charles: You’re going to deal with it.
Yo-Yo: You know why? Do you know why? Blockchain. That’s right, m**herf***er. Blockchain.
Slick Charles: So you’re from the blockchain, huh? That’s what you investing in? When you going to do that? Is that before or after you take off and backpack through the mountains of Baconia?
Slick Charles: Whatever the f***.
Slick Charles: You know what? That’s why I named your a** Yo-Yo, because you always come right back.
Slick Charles: Fontaine. Man, where the hell you been at, huh? I’ve been looking for your Black a** all over the universe.
Slick Charles: I don’t really appreciate how you coming in here, you know, attacking my castle like that, you know, in front of my flowers.
Slick Charles: Fontaine. Listen, we ain’t liquid like we used to be, okay? Look, they dehydrated. These chickens ain’t clucking like they used to. It’s a cold front.
Slick Charles: [to Fontaine] You is a grinch!

Slick Charles: [to Fontaine] Why does it always got to be Black-on-Black crime? Hmm? Black men are supposed to support they n****s! Take your s**t. Dramatic a**. You’re lucky I’m a lover, not a fighter.
Frog: Youngblood, straighter is greater, you hear me? Straighter is m**herf***ing greater!
Slick Charles: Watch my cuticle now. Be gentle with it. Respect it. Respect that cuticle.
Slick Charles: Jesus, what’re you doing? You send a ghost to a pimp?
Slick Charles: [to Fontaine] Do you not remember getting lit the f*** up? You should be breathing through some tubes right now.

Slick Charles: You Ghost of Christmas Past-a** n****. What the f*** kind of s**t you playing on, huh? You done sold your m**herf***ing soul to the devil.
Slick Charles: If there ain’t no juice in this m**herf***er, throw the damn bottle away!
Yo-Yo: You ain’t getting no m**herf***ing David Carradine for fifty bucks. Most I can do for you is a Susan Sarandon. Maybe a Shalamar.
Slick Charles: Get your beige a** the f*** out of here. You fake Obama-looking m**herf***er. That ain’t Michelle, n****.

Slick Charles: There it is again, that slippery slope of recidivism. I hate to see it.
Yo-Yo: And when I get there, I’m going to find me a real man.
Slick Charles: Yeah, I’ll find you a real man, because I’m a real m**herf***er.
Yo-Yo: Not some McDonald’s-dollar-menu has-been-a** n**** in a Goodwill suit.
Slick Charles: Keep talking goddamnit. You keep talking and I’m going to slip out of this Goodwill suit, and slap that fake-a** wig off you puny-a** head with nothing but my Gucci boxers on, and be back in this coat before it wrinkles. And you know I can do it.
Fontaine: You seen me last night?
Yo-Yo: Not like that.
Fontaine: No. Like, literally. You seen me?
Yo-Yo: Are you Kevin Bacon?
Fontaine: Wait. What?
Yo-Yo: Hollow Man. That was a good one. You liked it.
Slick Charles: Good movie. Good movie. Yeah.
Yo-Yo: You know your girl got to know what’s going on in these streets.
Yo-Yo: I’m done. You said I could go on my merry hoeing way.

Slick Charles: You know what, Fontaine? You got this Rambo-esque look about you. So I’m going to let you go and do your thing, and I’m going to just sit right here in the car. Fresh air might be good for a n**** though.
Yo-Yo: Man, I ain’t with this X-Files s**t.
Slick Charles: Anybody else getting a spooky feeling around here?
Yo-Yo: Oh, s**t! They got an elevator in this b**ch?
Slick Charles: It’s an elevator in a goddamn trap house. Doesn’t it make your Spider senses tingle?
Slick Charles: We don’t spelunk. White people spelunk. We spelunking.
Slick Charles: Girl, you done lost your rabbit-a** mind? Why you got a gun?
Yo-Yo: Because I don’t know what’s on the other side of these damn doors.
Tech: [to Fontaine] I’m just weird about guns in my face, alright? I talk a lot with a gun in my face. This is new for me. I know this isn’t new for you. I don’t know if this is new for you.
Slick Charles: It ain’t no snow, but I can still ski in it.
Tech: You don’t want to do this, man. We’re everywhere.
Fontaine: N****, who the f*** is “we”?
Slick Charles: Where did they find a white n**** with an afro anyway? You definitely ain’t in the colored section.
Slick Charles: You look like a game show host. That’s what you look like. You look like a manila folder.
