Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Does it matter to Eddie Murphy whether Harlem Nights is good or bad? It doesn't look like it."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Not as bad as you might think, but not all that good either."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"There's maybe two funny moments in this shrill directorial bomb from Eddie Murphy."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"Once there was Freddy. Once there was Chuckie and Jason and Howard the Duck. Now there is the scariest of them all. Now there is Harlem Nights."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"Though it's not easy to watch, Harlem Nights is gorgeous to look at."
‑ Catherine Cantieri, Apollo Guide
"It's narcissistic, misogynistic and extremely mean-spirited."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"An uninspired cross between Cotton Club and the characters of Damon Runyon, told in cliches so broad you keep waiting for it to poke fun at itself, but it never does."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Ugly, pushy and over-the-top, but there's still a bunch of laughs to be found."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
