Originally titled Whiteboys, this sleeper now sports a title that better fits its subject and tone. As directed by Marc Levin (Slam), it’s a seriously funny portrait of bored Iowa farm boys rebelling against their dead-end lives by stylin’ like gangsta rappers. When self-deluded ”Flip Dogg” (Hoch) sets out to score cocaine in Chicago, you fully expect a harsh reality check. What’s startling is this movie’s eruptive climax — and visceral wallop. B+
