'A Low Down Dirty Shame'

Although humorous and energetic, 'A Low Down Dirty Shame" is about as routine as a private-eye action-adventure can get, but it does have a secret weapon: Jada Pinkett, a feisty and funny comedian as witty as she is pretty. As Peaches, she is a secretary extraordinaire, at once sassy and devoted to Keenen Ivory Wayans' Andre Shame, a seedy L.A. private detective. Smartly produced and certainly lively, this 1994 film is diverting while you're watching it, but you're liable to start forgetting it by the time the end credits start to unroll (TMC Sunday at 9 p.m.).
