Secret Agent 00 Soul (1990)

How bad is it? Wow this one stinks.
Should you see it? No.

Watching bad blaxploitation, it was suggested I check this out. Billy Dee Williams plays an ex-secret agent who opens a detective agency. His receptionist turns out coincidentally to be his daughter. Williams wears a cape (as he did as Lando Calrissian), a tux and at one point, a Sherlock Holmes deerstalker cap; his clothes are more interesting than anything else. There are fart jokes. There are Russians with terrible accents. There's a real estate hoax, a crack den, gimmick inventions and rapping mummies (I kid you not; they're the best part). This is just a series of short underwritten sketches strung together. Straight to video, it's surprising this got released at all.
