Gentle giant Forest Whitaker falls for slinky Robin Givens in ’50s Harlem, unaware she’s a gangster’s moll on the run with a trunk of stolen gold.
Raunchy, cartoonish and with a tone of flip, foul-mouthed violence that’s almost proto-Tarantino, Bill Duke’s comedy-noir-romance is the playful antidote to the gritty ’hood movies that defined early ’90s black cinema.
Its exuberant bad taste overcomes often clunky storytelling.
