Quotes

Al Connors: I've got the money, the coke and a picture of your daughter. There's one more thing I need.
Harry De Bauld: What is that, Al?
Al Connors: That's all the information you can give me on this Big Daddy fella. Who is he?
Harry De Bauld: When you say 'who is he?' you're talking about what he looks like and where he hangs out. Nobody knows, Al. That's one thing we can't tell you much about. Very few people ever see Big Daddy. The only thing I can tell you though, he's about six feet two inches tall, has blond, curly hair and, man, you talking ...

Very cheap blaxploitation but good for a laugh
12 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First off.despite some comments,this is not the worst movie ever made.There is no doubting the facts that it contains awful acting,amateur direction and production values,however its not the snooze fest some truly "bad" movies are.I quite enjoyed the ludicrous hero who seduces every woman he meets(within mins) and beats people up employing no fighting skills whatsoever.I like the fact the same interiors are used for different locations and the dialogue is corny as hell and delivered terribly.There's plenty of laughs to be had so its never truly boring.If you want bad movies try Curse of the Headless Horseman,Cannibal Terror,The Killing Edge or Black Devil Doll from Hell! The Guy From Harlem is far more entertaining than those stinkers. Now where can I find the sequel?
