The main reason to watch this film is to watch Pam Grier bare all in one of her best outings. Coffy is a mix of blaxploitation and exploitation that revolves around a nurse going undercover as a hooker to avenge her sister's drug addiction and abuse. The acting is sub par and the soundtrack is definitely a time capsule. But the main reason to enjoy this film is for all of Pam Grier's amazing nude scenes. This has to be Pam Grier's best nude film and possibly her best 70's film before falling into supporting roles in the 80's. Pam Grier's breasts are amazing! Easily the greatest pair of breasts put on celluloid. Some of the violence is over the top and there's plenty of gratuitous nude scenes to enjoy. Greir became a go to 70's exploitation queen after this film and for good reason too. Her jugs are the most beautiful and erotic breasts ever put on film. Watch this movie for a great 70's drive in flashback or if you just want to watch Pam Grier unleash her bazookas...trust me. Her breasts are to die for!!!!
