Harlem Nights marked Eddie Murphy's directorial debut! Eddie does a good job also in giving the whole cast a lot of moments to shine! Speaking of the cast, you cannot do any wrong with the likes of Richard Pryor, Redd Foxx, Della Reese, Arsenio Hall, Jasmine Guy and Danny Aiello! This film is naturally funny and I guarantee as you watch it, you will be laughing too! I remember viewing this film in 1989 at a movie theater and the audience could not stop talking about it! Harlem Nights is a personal favorite of mine and i hope you will enjoy it just as much!
