Murphy's writing is about as snappy as a Sunday school lesson. The constant obscenities become a distraction and an eventual turnoff, and seem to be used when the writer and director can't invent something more creative.
The movie is a whirlingly divergent romp, blending serious violence with outrageous comedy, but it has the feel of oral history, of lives and times rescued from oblivion.
Does it matter to Eddie Murphy whether Harlem Nights is good or bad? It doesn't look like it.
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.
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.
Not as bad as you might think, but not all that good either.
Though it's not easy to watch, Harlem Nights is gorgeous to look at.
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.
It's narcissistic, misogynistic and extremely mean-spirited.
This movie, directed by Eddie Murphy, was boring, unfunny, and forgettable.
three generations of comedy legends and a stellar supporting cast star in this film written and directed by murphy in his prime. engaging and hilarious, red foxx and della reese especially shine in this film. i rewach it every ten years or so.
Movie about organised crime and police corruption in 1920s Harlem.
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 is only average itself...)
