    ONE OF THE BEST!!!

    This is one of the most underated movies that I have ever seen. A superb cast of characters from Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy to Danny Aiello make this work with a blend of comedy and dead serious action, depicting a slice of life that used to be business as usual. A sound track that includes at least 6 songs by Duke Ellington, and others by Count Basie, etc. only serve to enhance the movie.
