The story has been already told elsewhere, so I won't repeat it here. All I can say is, it is not particularly original, but good enough to keep us interested. But what we should notice in "Friday Foster" is a group of well-cast, talented actors. In addition to Pam Grier, who this time round goes with less tears and nudity, and more smile, is helped by Yaphet Kotto (Michael Clarke Duncan of the 70s) but it is Eartha Kitt as "madame" who steals the show with her flamboyant speech at fashion show. Actions are done in a rather bland way, but still watchable, and watch out Pam Grier steal a black hearse to chase the hitman; she later hits another guy in the head with a bottle full of milk!! Especially recommended to beginners of the genre as starting point of blaxploitaion films.
In the film she plays a Photo Journalist for a Fashion Magazine who gets mixed up in an assassination attempt on a politician.
The film fearures some reliable actors like Yaphet Kotto,a young,Carl Weathers and Scatman Crothers and plenty of the requisite hilarious action scenes this genre is known for.
Of course,Grier also has some skin scnes,not as explicit as the classic scenes offered in Coffy(1972) or Hit Man(1973),but still Grier in a shower and a hot tub is hard to resist for her fans.
All in all,harmless action fare for fans of the genre and of the lovely star.
