After surrounding his home with armed men, Chief Tolliver realizes his mistake and to avoid the bad publicity offers a thief in his jail, Amos Odell a deal.

Amos and Andrew suddenly realize that the Chief's problems are all gone if the two of them both die in a gun battle. The worst partnership in film history then tries to get away from the local police. Written by

Oh, yeah? What about you? You think the whole world is against you because you're black. Something don't go your way, it's because you're black. They're out of beer at the supermarket, it's because you're black. It rains and you get wet, it's because you're a black man.

When Samuel L. Jackson moves to a quiet little island to get away from the city, he's in for a lot of trouble. Arriving to the house one late afternoon, his white neighbors doesn't know he's moving in and when they see the once empty house occupied, all heck breaks loose. The neighbors run to the police to tell them a "black" man has broke into our neighbors house. Now the police, FBI, reporters, & Black Christians (don't ask) are surrounding the house. The only man who can save the night is Cage.
This film has comedy, action, and adventure just the way I like it. Nicholas Cage is hilarious and Samuel L. Jackson is superb. Great supporting cast and direction make this an instant contemporary classic. If you liked "Honey In Vegas" then you will love "Amos & Andrew". A Castle Rock Entertainment/New Line Cinema Release.
