Brief Synopsis

Jive with two of Hollywood's greatest funnymen in this cool comedy caper! Written and directed by Eddie Murphy, "Harlem Nights" (1989) co-stars all-time great Richard Pryor, as these two comic geniuses head back into the 1930s in this action-packed adventure. Murphy is Quick, Pryor is Sugar Ray, and the two run a sleek Harlem gambling house filled with gorgeous gals and smooth-talking card sharps. Quick and Ray soon discover they have an adversary in 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.
