Trivia

During one of the scenes where Foxy Brown (Pam Grier) is tied to the bed, she can be seen reaching her tongue to get a razor blade in her mouth to cut the ropes to get herself free. 7 years later in "Fort Apache the Bronx", Grier, who plays the hooker Charlotte, can be seen killing one of her customers with a hidden razor blade in her mouth.

Goofs

When Jackie shoots her brother's left ear, there is a hole punched into the wall, behind him. We should be able to see into the hole, but we can't because the angle of the hole into the wallboard is wrong. From where Jackie took her shot, the bullet should be angled similarly to the (extra bright) light and the camera angle (our POV), but, instead, it goes perpendicularly into the wallboard.

She'll put you on ice!
22 February 2004 | by davidbyrne77See all my reviews

Damn, this movie is so supa-bad it's supa-good! Pam Grier is great as the jive talkin' lady who's out for revenge after some snow-pushing honkies didn't treat her so nice. There's no messin' around with Foxy Brown! The clothes, the characters, and especially the talk (dig this, jive that) is so '70's it seems to be a parody.

What's bad about this film is the excessive violence (Foxy's drugging and raping and her gruesome revenge), but maybe it's necessary in order to have a film like this. Throw censorship to the wind and have a no-holds-barred action/revenge flick, complete with mutha-f***er this and that, pickle jar prothetics, and propeller dismemberments.

The trailer for this flick is the coolest. If it doesn't make you dig Foxy straight up, you're in the wrong scene!
