It was the first major Spike Lee film to spark conversation about race relations. And now, the cast of “Do the Right Thing,” including Rosie Perez, Ruby Dee and Giancarlo Esposito, reunite with director Spike Lee for the first time in 25 years.

whoa, there she is. Rosie perez and that famous opening sequence to spike lee's 1989 film "do the right thing." Well, 25 years later -- yep, 25 years, rosie, spike and the guys are back for the "entertainment weekly" reunion issue. They keep bringing us back for reunions every five years and people are still talking about this film. Get your own place. You can do what you want to do. It was a major spike film to spark conversation about race relations. After 25 years "do the right thing" remains in the top 100 of amer films of all time. It dealt with a very serious problem at that time in new york city. It tells a story about neighborhood's racial tensions on a scorching summer's day in brooklyn. Flames of hatred, bigotry and intolerance end with violence. For "entertainment weekly's" reunion issue it was a walk down memory lane. The film really put me on the map as a character actor. THE FILM NOT ONl5s LAUNCHED Careers but earned an oscar nomination for danny aiello for his role as sal. One of the most powerful scenes was rosie's grueling opening which she says to this day she'll never forget. I developed tennis elbow from throwing those punches. And spike now is in talks to bring "do the right thing" to broadway.
