"Sugar" Ray is the owner of an illegal casino, who contend with the pressures of vicious gangster and corrupt policemen who want to see him go out of business. In the world of organized crime and police corruption in the 1920s, any dastardly trick is fair! Written by

The earlier Eddie Murphy movie from Paramount Pictures, 48 Hrs. (1982) was, during the late 1970s, originally designed as a vehicle for Richard Pryor as the con (with Clint Eastwood as the cop). The picture, then in development at Columbia Pictures, went into turnaround for a time, and didn't go back into development for another couple of years, where it re-surfaced at Paramount, the studio which had a near-total monopoly on Murphy movies during the 1980s, and this included both 48 Hrs. (1982) and Harlem Nights (1989). See more »

I haven't had my ass whipped in a while. Probably been like 1911.
Yeah, that's when the doctor slapped you on the ass
Yes. That's the last ass-whipping I recall. I'm looking for him.

A lot of people have commented on the violence and profanities in this movie. I guess it could have gotten by without so many foul words. But this movie is still funny! The most hilarious scenes are Eddie Murphy's fistfight with Della Reese, and his shootout with Arsenio Hall. Say what you will about Eddie Murphy, but he can still crack you up!
