ReviewSource The Onion A.V. Club
Review Don't Play Us Cheap is broadly, humorously and exuberantly acted by its cast, which includes Esther Rolle from The Jeffersons. Better still, its songs, such as "You Cut Up The Clothes In The Closet Of My Dreams," are a lot of fun and make up for many of the rough edges. Fans of early-'70s black-themed films will want to give it a look, and those who think of Van Peebles only as an angry young man with a single message will be pleasantly surprised.
