Amos & Andrew is a 1993 American buddy action comedy film directed and written by E. Max Frye, and starring Nicolas Cage and Samuel L. Jackson. The film's title parodies that of the sitcom Amos 'n' Andy while the premise also appears to be a riff on The Defiant Ones. Shot in and around Wilmington, North Carolina, the film concerns wealthy African-American playwright Andrew Sterling's (Jackson) purchase of a summer home on a predominantly white island. It was released to box office failure, grossing just under $10 million domestically, and receiving generally negative reviews from critics.
