Review A film that works overtime to offend each and every ethnic group and economic class that makes up the smoggy purgatory of Los Angeles while simultaneously patting itself on the back for being so putatively daring, The L.A. Riot Spectacular is a cynical exercise in erstwhile satire that's all the more frustrating for the wasted opportunity it represents...There's nothing wrong with treating a tragic and absurd event with absurdist comedy - but maybe taking the Airplane! approach to one of the nation's worst episodes of civil unrest wasn't the best of ideas.
