I happen to have watched it a few nights back. This film is a winner. It's retro, but that doesn't matter. The humor between Mouse and Easy is side-splitting! The depictions of black life are terrific. This is a man-in-over-his-head story and a detective story.
Another one I like a great deal that I rewatched within the last month is "Simpatico". this 1999 film rates only 4.5. Go figure. This is really a far, far better film than that.
