A Total HOOT! Yay Pam!

I don't understand all the negative reviews this film has received on this site--it's a total hoot. It may not have the story or grittiness of Coffy or Foxy Brown, but it has all the fun elements, and plenty of 'em. I watched Foxy Brown expecting a hilarious time capsule of black 70s style, slang, and b-grade action, and was surprised that it was actually a great movie. THIS is the movie I expected, and it is great just for being what it is.

My favorite scene of all is when Ted Lange (Isaac from Love Boat) drives up in his Cadillac, trying to persuade Friday to join his harem. Pam is hilarious in this scene, as is Lange, with his WONDERFUL speech about his ladies' fine clothes, ride, heavy blow, and best of all, they each have their own personal health and welfare plan! Then cut to the 'ladies,' who are THE skankiest trash you could imagine. Friday refuses, and Fancy says 'Well, at least you have to admit my sh*t is… HEEEEAAAAAAAVVVVVVYYYYYYY!' I'm sorry, who can resist this?

MINUTES after this we see Carl Weathers in his red-and-white plaid jacket with mirrored sunglasses! Then Chloris (friend of Friday's) throws MASSIVE shade at Friday for not running at her beck and call! Then Eartha Kitt delivers this speech about her new fashion collection, called 'the four seasons of S-E-X…. rrroooawwww!' As you can see the hits come fast and furious in this little gem.

Special mention must be made of the fashion show. Four women come out VERY dramatically, as this insipid music repeats its four-bar melody over and over and over. They never alter the expression on their faces, they engage in these vogue-type gestures that are stiff and ridiculous… after a certain point it becomes this sort of alien pantomime bearing no relation to anything human. Was this supposed, at one time, to be sexy? Is this what all our 'sexy' Britney's and co. will look like in 30 years? Take special note of the one in white--she looks like the creature from the black lagoon or that floating head from 'Zardoz,' and NEVER alters her living corpse expression.

Pam is great and fun as ever, and she has more to DO here than in Foxy Brown or Coffy, much as I love them. Here she plays more of a human with a sense of humor. There is also a parade of FIIIIINE-lookin' men ('You don't forget the fine-lookin' ones' says Friday), including Carl Weathers and Thalamus Rasulala.

There were also quite a few snappy little one-liners that went by so fast they're almost hard to catch. Anyway, not the best Pam Grier movie in terms of quality, but maybe the best in terms of fun, laughs, and just WAYYYY out-there 70s mojo.

Witty, Powerful, Campy

Friday Foster is an ensemble piece that portrays a broad spectrum of the African American community. When her childhood friend is murdered, Friday, a journalist turned detective sets out to find her killer, all while being pursued by someone who wants her dead because of something she's seen. I loved the idea of a film full of Black people who are funny and campy and intent when tackling the idea of powerful Black men unifying!

Fast Friday

Friday Foster (Pam Grier) is based on a comic strip featuring a black heroine.

As a Blaxploitation film this is one of the more milder Pam Grier ones, a little more lighthearted but also a tad dull as well with a thinner plot.

Friday is a magazine photographer who is on a last minute assignment to cover the airport arrival of the richest black man in America and stumbles into an assassination attempt.

As Friday caught the bad guys on camera her life is in danger with Carl Weathers on the hunt to kill her. Friday perseveres to investigate the botched assassination and uncovers a plot to kill some prominent black leaders.

Friday Foster certainly has a great cast of black actors from Yaphet Kotto, Eartha Kitt, Scatman Crothers, Carl Weathers and Thalmus Rasulala.

Kotto and Grier bounce off each other well with a playful relationship and Kotto gets to go toe to toe with Weathers in some action scenes.

Grier is happy to display her ample breasts in several scenes and gets to have a few easy lovemaking scenes as well.

The trouble is despite a very good shoot out sequence at the beginning of the film the film feels rather boring here and there and the plot is too shallow. Still the cast gives it a lot of class.
