In the Heat of the Night Reviews
Exciting, intriguing, well directed, and spectacular performances makes In the Heat of the Night a smart detective movie.
"They call me... Mr. Tibbs"
This quote has been parodied in the animated films 'The Lion King' and 'Sausage Party' and remains to be one of the greatest quotes in the history of film. I have heard that 'In the Heat of the Night' is a staple of modern times for its commentary on racism, leading it to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. Sidney Poitier didn't win the Oscar for 'Best Actor', but his tense, angry performance is one worth mentioning when talking about one of the greatest characters in cinema. I admit that the film is laughable and doesn't hold up well at times, but it is still a great movie that is worth a viewing.
