Tacky Blaxploitation film not even good enough for amateur night
22 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm being generous giving this turkey three stars, and that's only because it had a hot blonde go topless for a scene. (One for each breast, and one for the memory.) I saw this one on a double bill in a 42nd Street theater(The other film must have been even worse because I can't even remember the title) and my only memory of it (besides seeing an old Boston TV news anchor play a role in this) is when the "brother" in the title spurns the lovely blonde's advances, some brother in the audience said something colorful that amounted to (and here's the cleaned up version) "Damn, you're crazy turning that down. I'll make you happy, baby." I agreed. Stupid plot. Terrible acting and I've seen better cutting in the local barbershop.
