watched 'harlem nights' last night. what a hilarious movie.

watched it on amazon. at first the little popups that come up every time i bumped the screen bugged me. till one of them said- eddie murphy said that the jokes on set between him, della reese and redd foxx were funnier than anything in the movie.

the black 'sting', except you arent in on it till the end.

1. I'm not African-American, but I found the film incredibly offensive.

It was like a minstrel show. I couldn't believe the production staff was largely African-American.

3. The wild overacting on the part of every actor, including Della Reese, who should have known better.

The wide-eyed, wide-mouthed mugging. It was embarrassing...

4. well, i'm not either.

 

maybe that is why it didnt over that big.
but i loved seeing the culture of harlem back in the day. the costumes, the bands, all that.
different strokes i guess.

7. I liked the movie. I will watch it again.

The part that had me in stitches, when it first came out, was the little guy shooting off what seemed to be a .22 cal pistol after all of that machine gun fire. Pop, pop!! Driving Arsenio's character crazy.

I can not wait for Coming to America II.
