3.0 out of 5 stars A Low Down Dirty Shame REVIEW Oct. 29 2003
Format:VHS Tape
"Beverly Hills Cop" meets "Shaft" with wise-cracking Wayans as a private investigator who must track down his former love interest to bring down a drug dealer he thought he killed many years ago. Jada Pinkett joins the ride as Shame's sassy assistant, Peaches.
Shame has two days to find Angela (the beautiful Salli Richardson), his former fiance who is now working as a federal witness against crime boss, Mendoza (Andrew Divoff). Under the guise of his mentor, Sonny (Charles Dutton) and with the help of his female sidekick, Shame goes back to work with action-packed results.
"Low Down Dirty Shame" is a little bit of everything. Wayans' script provides action, comedy, and a little bit of romance into a nice homage to 70's black action pics. The cast in "Low Down" does its job and does it well. Wayans has fun playing the hero as he bungee-dives out of an exploding sporting goods store, uses James Brown routines to thwart a group of attacking guard dogs, and leads a Coloumbian nemesis through a KKK convention. Pinkett is surprisingly good as the comedy sidekick. What can one say about Salli Richardson? Well, let's just say her performance is very, very easy on the eyes. The concluding cat fight with her and Pinkett is a nice touch.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Guilty Pleasure, But A Pleasure Nonetheless! Aug. 23 2000
Format:VHS Tape
No, this probably would not have cleaned up at the Oscars, but it certainly goes a long way in proving that Keenan Ivory Wayans is no one trick pony (ie; making, tired 70's blaxploitation flicks) and can turn in a polished, entertaining, fast-paced, funny and interesting action flick. The acting is wonderfully cheesy (except for the annoying, bull-like, Step'n'Fetchit antics of Charles S. Dutton who overacts ALL the time) and the pace is lighthearted from start to finish. Jada Pinkett flexes her comedic skills considerably here as the ghettofied Peaches and is one of the most endearing 'wacky sidekicks' in recent cinematic history. Now, on to the guilty pleasures part; my favorite sequence involves, you guessed it, the gorgeous Salli Richardson. Mr. Wayans gives her the greatest entry scene of any actress EVER! As she steps out of a cab in slow motion, tossing her hair and cooly placing sunglasses on her face, soft and sensuous jazz plays over the scene and the camera [shows] her from head to toe. We are then treated to the sight of her walking seductively to the entrance of a chic boutique while WEARING THE [HECK] out of a form-fitting, revealing dark dress. Brief though it may be, this scene alone makes the movie worth owning! "A Low Down Dirty Shame" is perfect viewing for a Saturday night with friends, or alone. It won't alter your view of modern cinema, but it does what a good movie should do: entertain and make you forget about your troubles, and on that level it succeeds quite nicely.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average but mildly amusing time killer. Jan. 22 2004
By John IV
Amusing comedy homage to blacksploitation films, should collapse under its own premise but doesn't. Due largely to the chemistry between the cast, and the comic skills of the elder Wayans the film actually allows you to sit through it. Throw in a sassy Jada Pinkett and whoever that Pochohontas chick is and it's at least watchable. Convoluted plot has Wayans as an ex-cop who has a chance for redemption by taking down a drug lord and a bad cop, the guy from Roc. 20 million dollars of the drug lords money being stolen by Keenan's ex, blah blah blah. Not a lot of laugh out loud type moments, but a few smirkers despite Jada's constant head and finger wagging.

"A Low Down Dirty Shame " at first looks like another predictable, poorly acted and unfunny action/comedy, but release it from it's box and you've got the complete opposite. It is very funny, unpredicatble (apart from the ending) and the action is way above the unrealistic scenes of "schwarzenegger" films. But most of all, it's entertaining. This has got to be the "Shaft" for the nineties, Keenan Ivory Wayans matching style with smoothness. It is an action/comedy to end all action/comedies, and add in a funny, aggressive Jada Pikett and you've got a film that will keep your interest for a long time.

3.0 out of 5 stars i'd love to sing James Brown to one of my dogs Dec 8 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Ivory Wayans is Shame and he runs a buisness with his assistant Peaches(Jada Pinkett Smith) and they get a case from an old friend(Charles S. Dutton) about one of Shame's ex-girlfriends..so Shame hunts her down and takes her into his custody...also Shame is dealing with some badass mexican guy(Andrew Divoff) and he has to bobble both at the same time..wih some funny ass moments..remember the gay guy when Wayans comes into the club and the other gay guy comes up to him and it all files into this whole thing about gays..funny...and when Wayans starts to dance and sing James Brown to the dogs..great

A Low Down Dirty Shame is a great movie that pays homage to the blaxploitation films of the 70's. Keenan Ivory Wayans does a great job of mixing action and humor in this cool detective story about a PI looking for $20 million in stolen drug money. The supporting cast is very good here; Jada Pinkett and Salli Richardson aren't just eye candy, they give good performances too. However the only fault is with the film is Charles S. Dutton who overacts as usual. ALDDS is a great popcorn movie that will leave you smiling. Definitely buy it.
