In the waning days of Prohibition, Sugar Ray and his adopted son, Quick, run a speakeasy called Club Sugar Ray. When gangster Bugsy Calhoune learns Sugar Ray''s place is pulling in more money than his own establishment, the Pitty Pat Club, he pays corrupt cop Phil Cantone to close Club Sugar Ray down. Quick doesn''t exactly help the situation when he falls for Calhoune''s gun moll, Miss Dominique La Rue.
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.
