An average movie

Even though I wasn't expecting much, since it was one of the last movies starring Eddie Murphy which I hadn't see yet, I thought I might as well give it a try. Like many other actors, Murphy thought he could be a director and with this project, he went all the way, as he produced, wrote the whole thing and even played the lead character. He even managed to get his big idol, Richard Pryor, to get o... read more

"First viewing - Nov. 7th I ended my Saturday night with Harlem Nights because it's an Eddie Murphy film from the '80s I hadn't seen yet. And I had a good time with it. Watching Murphy work with his idol Richard Pryor is a treat all around, and it's refreshing to see a 1930s gangster film told from a Black perspective. The cast is very good, the story is well-told, and it's consistently entertaining. It's not quite great, but it's better than the ratings above would suggest. I'd watch it again."
