Not as bad as you might think, but not all that good either.
| Original Score: 3/5
Though it's not easy to watch, Harlem Nights is gorgeous to look at.
| Original Score: 37/100
Ugly, pushy and over-the-top, but there's still a bunch of laughs to be found.
There's maybe two funny moments in this shrill directorial bomb from Eddie Murphy.
| Original Score: 0/5
An uninspired cross between Cotton Club and the characters of Damon Runyon, told in cliches so broad you keep waiting for it to poke fun at itself, but it never does.
| Original Score: 2/4
Once there was Freddy. Once there was Chuckie and Jason and Howard the Duck. Now there is the scariest of them all. Now there is Harlem Nights.
Does it matter to Eddie Murphy whether Harlem Nights is good or bad? It doesn't look like it.
It's narcissistic, misogynistic and extremely mean-spirited.
