When African-American professional Andrew Sterling (Samual L. Jackson) moves into a summer home on an up-tight all-white New England resort island, the snoopy white neighbors are sure he must be breaking and entering. They call the cops who get too rambunctious and break into Sterling's limo, tripping its security alarm. When Sterling shows up to stop the alarm and pulls out his keys to open the car, a skittish cop thinks he's pulling a gun and opens fire. Now things are really a mess, because

A one-joke sketch that doesn't work as a feature.

Cage is the only actor allowed to do riffs on his assigned part, something he takes full advantage of; the others are stuck with their two-dimensional satirical profiles, which grow increasingly tiresome and unyielding.

A hhandicapped satirical farce whose roots are not in life but in other, better movies and sitcoms.

A very funny little film with big pleasures, and a most promising debut.

Although the movie strives mightily to teach its lesson, which is that you cannot judge a man by the color of his skin, the humor is undermined by the sadness of the basic situation.

Cage is a font of funny character weirdness. This movie marks the least of his offerings. Jackson, as the relative straight man, has little to work with.

Comedies about racism risk trivializing the issue on the one hand or becoming preachy and dull on the other. Amos & Andrew manages to do both.

One of the stupidest and most morally retarded comedies of the decade.

The title sounds like a bad joke - Amos & Andrew. Unfortunately, the movie is just as bad.

Amos & Andrew is a better-than-average comedy that's likable enough while unfolding but evaporative when over.

Acceptable slight waste of time starring Samuel Jackson and Nicolas Cage in far from their greatest roles.
