"...Murphy's effort is distinguished by his own singular presence as an actor, and by the delight he takes in appearing with his various co-stars....At the center of HARLEM NIGHTS is one of the great young talents of the day in the process of seeing just how far he can go..."
Comedian Eddie Murphy's directorial debut. It's the 1930's and the joint is jumpin' over at Harlem's Club Sugar Ray. The hot spot is owned by its namesake and his adopted, hot-headed son Quick. But Quick and Ray soon discover they have an adversary in the form of gangster Bugsy Calhoun, who wants the club for himself, and is using a corrupt cop and an alluring femme fatale to do the dirty work for him. But the streetwise father and son are not easily duped, and instead hatch a plan to teach the mobster a lesson he'll never forget...
