Below average Pam Grier vehicle, 18 March 1999
Author: pooch-8 from Fargo, North Dakota

Unfortunately, William Girdler's 1975 Sheba, Baby is one of Pam Grier's weaker vehicles. Playing a Chicago-based private investigator who flies to the South in order to help her father save his loan business from corrupt sharks, Grier has fewer that usual opportunities to pull out the stops. Additionally, Grier is hampered the most by a substandard script and little chance to do what she does best. Despite the lethargic pacing, a climactic speed boat chase -- which culminates in a nasty skewering at the end of a harpoon -- should please fans of the genre. Jack Hill's 1973 Coffy is a far superior Pam Grier movie.
