Information and Film Reviews for Do the Right Thing the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

An uncompromising, brutal comedy about the racial tensions surrounding a white-owned pizzeria in the Bed-Stuy section of Brooklyn on the hottest day of the summer, and the violence that eventually erupts. Ambivalent and, for the most part, hilarious; Lee's coming-of-age.
