Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When Jackie shoots her brother's left ear, there is a hole punched into the wall, behind him. We should be able to see into the hole, but we can't because the angle of the hole into the wallboard is wrong. From where Jackie took her shot, the bullet should be angled similarly to the (extra bright) light and the camera angle (our POV), but, instead, it goes perpendicularly into the wallboard.See more »
Quotes:
Link Brown:Foxy, I'm a black man, and I don't know how to sing, and I don't know how to dance, and I don't know how to preach to no congregation. I'm too small to be a football hero, and too ugly to be elected mayor. But I watch TV and see all these folks and the nice homes they live in and all them fancy cars they drive, I just get so full of ambition. Now you tell me what I'm supposed to do with all this ambition?
Foxy Brown:I don't know, Link, I just don't want to see you end up in jail, or gunned down in the streets somewhere.

Hilariously over-the-top, cheesy sex and violence. And Pam Grier is hot., 15 January 2010
Author: from United States

This is shamelessly trashy. And very cheesy. And aside from Ms Grier, the acting is soap opera-grade. And its hilariously dated. And just all around hilarious. And Pam Grier is one sexy bad-ass chick. Or rather: Superbad! Can you dig it?

The gun hidden in the afro was a nice touch.

So was the death-by-airplane-propeller.

And the brawl in the lesbian bar.

And the revenge-by-manhood-removal.

We get to see her boobs. Large, shapely boobs.

I was hugely entertained.

There really isn't more that I need to say.
