Description: Zeke, an assembly line laborer, is an angry and unhappy man. He finds some respite from the drudgery of the day at Little Joe's Bar where he meets his best friends Jerry Bartowski, a welder, and Smokey Jones, a utility man. All three feel the grinding, oppressive, and entrapping quality of their work. They are members of the union. But instead of giving them a sense of pride and solidarity, the union treats them the same way their bosses do — as children.

Movie Reviews (1851-1900) (50 movies items)

" Richard Pryor really should have done more dramatic roles during his lifetime as this film show how fantastic he could be playing emotional real-life working class characters. Yaphet Kotto and Harvey Keitel also deliver solid stuff in this excellent heist-gone-wrong movie that end up being really tense at the end as the robbers so discover that no one screws the union nor the system. Cool movie with substance. "

"6.3, PC Blue Collar on samaan aikaan sekä hauska, arkinen että ajatuksia herättävä kuvaus liukuhihnatyöntekijöiden kamppailusta oikeuksiensa puolesta. Elokuvan ajaton tematiikka pistää ajattelemaan aihetta myös laajemmalla skaalalla, ei pelkästään sikariportaan sorrosta rivityöntekijää kohtaan. Richard Pryorilta hieno rooli."
