A voluptuous black vigilante takes a job as a high-class prostitute to get revenge on the mobsters who murdered her boyfriend.
According to director Jack Hill this was originally intended to be a sequel to his Coffy (1973), also starring Pam Grier, and in fact the working title of the film was "Burn, Coffy, Burn!". However, American-International Pictures decided at the last minute it didn't want to do a sequel, even though "Coffy" was a huge hit. That's why it's never said exactly what kind of job Foxy Brown has--"Coffy" was a nurse and since this was no longer to be a sequel, they couldn't give Foxy Brown that job and didn't have time to rewrite the script to establish just what kind of job she had.
Who does she think she is?
Link Brown: That's my sister, baby, and she's a whole lotta woman.
About halfway through the movie, Foxy is taken down in the dirt outside by a whip around her neck, and as she falls her brown skirt flips up and shows the inner yellow color. The camera immediately switches to another angle and her skirt is back down and not flipped up.
The UK cinema version was uncut. The 1987 video version had 2 mins 48 secs removed from the rape scene, shots of drug taking, and a woman's bloodied throat. All cuts were fully restored in 1998.
