I’m The Pappy!

The movie Life featuring Eddie Murphy (Ray Gibson) and Martin Lawrence (Claude Banks) is hilarious. They live in New York City but during a moonshine run to the deep south they end up in a southern prison working on a chain gang. In a funny scene, a disabled black inmate secretly fathers a child with the white daughter of the warden. When the child is born, the warden goes ballistic trying to discover which black inmate fathered his half-black grandchild.

It’s a very funny scene!
