Pam Grier is a nurse who, at nightfall, heads out into the street to gun down heroin dealers and confound their suppliers.  Jackie Brown was an homage to this slick “blaxploitation” film — with its funky soundtrack, street thug dialogue, and long, languid plot development — but that movie wasn’t nearly as wacky or raunchy as its source material. Coffy is enjoyable as a kind of “so bad it’s good” 70’s farce, with plenty of ridiculous nude scenes (preening upper class prostitutes, ladies who fight by tearing at each other’s clothes, etc.) but once you get through that stuff you also get some great action at the climax, with Grier as the quintessential black female action hero.  Worth checking out.
