    Synopsis


    A Low Down Dirty Shame
    A black detective becomes embroiled in a web of danger while searching for a fortune in missing drug money in this action-comedy. Writer-director Keenan Ivory Wayans also stars as Los Angeles private eye Arthur Shame, a former cop whose troubled past resurfaces when a one-time colleague asks for help in a narcotic case. During the course of his investigation, he encounters various old connections, ultimately confronting the criminal responsible for Shame's expulsion from the force. He must also deal with two women, Angela, a beautiful old flame (Salli Richardson), and Peaches (Jada Pinkett), his energetic but annoying sidekick. Unlike Wayans' blaxploitation parody I'm Gonna Get You Sucka, A Low Down Dirty Shame sticks more closely to genre conventions, lightening the action with wisecracks and standard comic interludes. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

      Shame, a private investigator, is summoned to locate missing money and stumbles upon an ex-girlfriend. The movie could have been a lot better.

      Just a funny action movie with that sassy Jada Pickett, that holds this movie together. Yeah, I know, Mr. Wayans is not a good actor, but he knows who to put in his movies to make them better
