It sports an exquisite costume design and slick art direction but "Harlem Nights" is nowhere near as memorable as it ought to be (at least in a good way for some viewers). Far more vulgar and profane than I'm sure anyone suspected but light on character develoent and an actual plot, it's a series of skits and gunfights and everything else you'd expect from an action/comedy starring Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor AND Red Foxx. It ought to have been better than this with such a terrific lineup.

Oh, Richard. Why couldn't you star in a film worth a damn...? A typically crass and sexist gangster comedy from Eddie Murphy that's nowhere near as good as A Rage In Harlem, which wasn't that great itself.

I love this movie! It's definitely my favorite Eddie Murphy movie. But, I love the fact that Redd Foxx and Richard Pryor are in it as well.
