When Samuel L. Jackson moves to a quiet little island to get away from the city, he's in for a lot of trouble. Arriving to the house one late afternoon, his white neighbors doesn't know he's moving in and when they see the once empty house occupied, all heck breaks loose. The neighbors run to the police to tell them a "black" man has broke into our neighbors house. Now the police, FBI, reporters, & Black Christians (don't ask) are surrounding the house. The only man who can save the night is Cage.
This film has comedy, action, and adventure just the way I like it. Nicholas Cage is hilarious and Samuel L. Jackson is superb. Great supporting cast and direction make this an instant contemporary classic. If you liked "Honey In Vegas" then you will love "Amos & Andrew". A Castle Rock Entertainment/New Line Cinema Release.
