Playing 9/13 @ 10:00 p.m.
In TRAPPED IN THE CLOSET, R. Kelly’s classic hip hopera, Kels takes on the role of Sylvester, who has a simple one-night stand with a preacher’s wife and then ends up in a web of preposterous lies and a series of outlandish plot twists ranging from used rubbers on his bed to an asthmatic midget male stripper who likes to hang out with a white chick named Bridget.
Throughout all of these misadventures, the drama is played as fiercely straight as R. Kelly, and the tale is told through rhyme after rhyme after rhyme. Over the years, some audiences have hailed TRAPPED as the “Plan 9 From Outer Space of music videos,” while others have recognized it as the masterpiece from our generation’s greatest living R&B legend. But whichever camp you fall into, one thing is certain – there will be no better cinematic event this year than singing and dancing and playing with props in a theater full of other R. Kelly fans at the fully interactive R. Kelly’s Trapped in the Closet Sing-Along.
Directors R. Kelly and Jim Swaffield. 120 mins, Rated R
