What do a stewardess, a gunrunner, a bailbondsman, an ex-con, a federal agent, and a beach bunny have in common? They're all chasing a half million dollars in cash! The question in this Tarantino hit is who's playing who and who will walk away with the goods?

It's a comedy, a drama, a crime film, it has one of my favourite characters in movie history (Ordell Robbie, played to perfection by Samuel L. Jackson) The real treat of the film is that it's a slice of life look at people dealing with age and facing retirement. Ordell knows he can spend the rest of his life spending, Lewis can't smoke a bong properly anymore, Jackie Brown and Max Cherry are both stuck in jobs that will have them with things that ain't worth a damn Quentin Tarantino said he made this film for black audiences and everyone else is invited. And while I've enjoyed everything he's made, this one I can't fault and the parts I love, I love more than in his other films and a lot of other films I love in general This film is a rarity - how many films do you see with an African-American women of Pam Griers age have a roll like this in the film She looks absolutely stunning and is quite simply excellent in the film, as everyone is.
Adapted from an Elmore Leonard novel, Tarantino wrote a much better screenplay!!
Pam Grier, who WAS Jackie Brown, was certainly her best role ever!! And the love and admiration that Tarantino had for Grier was very apparent!! She was beautiful in this film!!
The other standout was Robert Forrester, as Max Cherry! He was a revelation! And very deserving of his Oscar nomination!
Samuel L. Jackson was a charicature of a thug!! But he was convincing as a stone-cold killer.
Robert DeNiro played the “institutionalized” Louis with aplomb!
Bridget Fonda was fun, as Jackson’s “surfer girl”.
I won’t go further, but I LOVED this movie, even when it first came out, because I’m a huge fan of Pam Grier.
And the Soundtrack...PERFECT!. Across 110th St. = Bobby Womak
I was amused and entertained. I can't say much more than. If you like Leonard's writing and you like the actors, you simply can't go wrong.
(if you don't like the "N" word, even when used by black people, the don't bother watching 'cause you'll just get all upset about it.)
Amazon Prime sent me an email recommending this. The email recommendations are getting to be very good.
The story is impeccable to boot. Just a hoot. And the characters and actors that portray them are very good and believable. We coulda used more Winston, but whatever.
The lines are amazing. Quentin and the top of his dialogue game.
This is his #1 or #2 film and definitely his most under appreciated. I don't think I could ever put a film of his above Pulp Fiction, but this one is more 'real life'.
