Review

Eddie Murphy's racy, unpolished material and youthful energy coupled with a fiery and appreciative audience makes this stand-up film a fascinating and sometimes explosive watch even after thirty years. Granted, the material is uneven, and the audience seems unseasoned at times, but the highlights here, such as Murphy's parody on James Brown or the bit about his mother as a "shoe slinger", more than make up for the less successful bits.
