Brian Susbielles InSession Film A musical romp about some of Satan’s little devils infiltrating a party in Harlem. Feb 28, 2023 Full Review Armond White National Review Don't Play Us Cheap -- with its immense charm, rousing musical turns, and undeniable folk wisdom -- overturns the presumptions of every cultural institution now pledged to make statements on "diversity" and "equity," instead of making art.

Audience Member This was a cool musical movie! It was nice to see Esther Rolle and Teresa Merrit in another role besides the roles that made them very popular. This movie was so funny and crazy. It was definitely a great movie to be made in 1973! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member I did not really like this movie.
