I won't spoil the plot for you too many people already have . (by Jdidalot)
One on those rare DVD I've purchased and watch when I need to relax and have a laugh. Nic Cage is amazing in it and Jackson is as versatile as always. I can't help smiling watching Dabney Coleman remembering him as Merle Jeeter in the Mary Hartman sitcom . I just love this movie. It's just clean fun and daring to show on screen the preconceived and non-politically correct concepts that some people have. I had this movie in a VHS format and could not help getting it in a DVD format. This is a comedy classic that you should purchase just to be able to watch it when you feel like <more>
it. So get some popcorn, get the family and friends around the screen and have a good time.
When you see a black man with a stereo in his hands in a million dollar mansion, what do you think? Great hilarious satire about white and black prejudices. (by imseeg)
Seen it many times and this comedy is a classic that is here to stay, because the racial prejudices jokes are just hilarious and still ring true to this very day. Both black and white prejudices are being made fun of in this hilariously funny farce about a rich black man Samuel L. Jackson moving into a wealthy neighbourhood, while getting mistaken for a thief in his own house when he is simply connecting his new stereo. The consequences of this mistaken identity are way over the top, including media cover ups, rigged elections, black marches and a dog hunt, to name a few.Best thing about <more>
this comedy is that it is funny as can be. The oneliners are great, the mix ups are hilarious and the racial prejudice jokes are spot on. Acting by Nicolas Cage, Samuel L Jackson and the supporting actors are hilarious as well. Racial prejudice comedy classic! They dont get made like this very often. Truly a forgotten gem on Imdb. Highly recomnended if you just wanna have a good laugh!
One of the most underrated, overlooked comedies of the 1990s (by AnonII)
One of the most underrated, overlooked comedies of the 1990s, and a social satire that DOES work, Maltin's faulty opinion to the contrary. Cage is brilliant, as is Bob Balaban. Writer/director E. Max Frye deserved much better reception for this sharp, smart piece of work. Unfortunately, the film's ending was apparently re-worked, to the satisfaction of almost no one on the creative team.Coincidentally, the angry mob torch scene in this movie was shot practically the same time the 'Rodney King' riots unfolded 3000 miles away in LA.

Very Funny, Preconceived Ideas set off a string of errors (by reblit)
When famous Pulitzer Prize winner Andrew Sterling Samuel L. Jackson moves into a new home on a New England resort island, he is mistaken by his new neighbors Phil Michael Lerner and Judy Gillman Margaret Colin as a thief because they see him through his window with his stereo equipment in his hands! They call the police. The Chief of Police Cecil Talliver Dabney Coleman and his band of bungling deputies show-up and then the fun begins. When Talliver realizes that he and his deputies have shot at a famous man, he must engineer a cover-up by using a con-artist currently incarcerated in <more>
his jail, Amos Odell Nicolas Cage . Dabney Colman is at his best playing this sort of incompetent pompous ass character! Samuel Jackson and Nicolas Cage are believable in their roles. The whole movie is a comedy of errors with several scenes that are laugh-out-loud funny. Entertaining!
