Movie Reviews

Almost as funny as "Silver Streak"
David Hugaert | Honolulu, HI United States | 12/13/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Stir Crazy" is Gene Wilder's and Richard Pryor's second film in which they starred together. Although this film contains many very funny scenes, the chemistry that Wilder and Pryor display here isn't as strong and cohesive as in their first film "Silver Streak", but is do-able. The scenes which slow this picture down are the rodeo-escape scenes toward the end of the film, and display very little life and are somewhat boring. The plot of "Stir Crazy", though, where Wilder and Pryor are framed for armed robbery and sent to prison, is quite amusing and hilarious, with the right amount of flavor and texture to grab my attention! The fact is, any movie starring Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor, with the exception of "Another You", will command at least a four-star rating. Any die-hard fan(s) of these fine actors/performers will want to add "Stir Crazy" to their must-have collection(s)."
"Yeah, that's right, we bad..."

"In my opinion, there has never been a greater comedy duo than Richard Pryor/Gene Wilder. They are two comic geniuses who mesh perfectly when they come together. In STIR CRAZY, their best film in my opinion, the two play an actor and a playwright from New York who decide to head out west to look for work. However, along the way, their plans are put on hold as they get framed for bank robbery and find themselves in a Texas penitentiary. They then go through a series of adventures attempting to prove their innocence, escape from prison, and stay alive.The movie does not contain a very original plot, but the viewer can expect many laughs watching two of the greatest comedians of all time at their best!"
That's right we're bad!!!

"This movie is a true classic, Pryor and Wilder at their best. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with this one in your collection. Also, we will miss you condolences to his family. Rest in Peace."
Left me in stitches.
