Synopsis by Hal Erickson

This low-budget entry in the "blaxploitation" genre of the 1970s is so stereotypical that it's almost a parody of the genre (which might well have been the intention). You might get some moderate interest out of the fact that future Magnum PI co-star Roger E. Mosley plays the male lead. Otherwise, there's a plethora of jive talk, lots of blaring R&B music, plenty of flesh-pressing between the girls and the guys, and lots of chasing around streets and alleyways. It ain't art, but it made back its cost. Get Down and Boogie was directed by onetime Republic Pictures actionmeister William Witney.
