I am not over-exaggerating when I say this, but this is ONE OF THE BEST COMEDIES EVER MADE! It's so fucking hilarious it'll leave you in stitches as you roll around the floor laughing your ass off! It deals with two very nice guys living in the hum-drum 80s of New York City. They lose their jobs at the exact same time and day and both decide to take off to L.A. to start a new life.

25 From 80: My Favorite Films Of 1980 (25 movies items)

"During the seventies, Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor were two comedians whose individuals stars were rising. Then someone came along decided to pair Wilder's ivory Brook-farce antics with Pryor's ebony-edged street-savvy. And as a result, at the beginning of the 80's decade, the comedy duel saw their combined star-power going super-nova. The second of four Wilder/Pryor collaborations, Stir Crazy probably didn't have the strength of laughter as their first outing, Silver Streak, but it still had"

"It's strange about "Stir Crazy." We go in with big expectations, and we laugh so much at the beginning that we're ready for the movie to launch itself as a hit. And then it all goes flat and we come out disappointed. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times "

I regret this film. (34 movies items)

"Richard Pryor, Stir Crazy This 1980 Sidney Poitier-directed buddy comedy (the second of four collaborations with Gene Wilder) was Richard Pryor’s biggest box-office hit, but the comic sure couldn’t figure out why. He expressed his initial doubts in a notorious, coked-up on-set interview (above), announcing, “What do you wanna know about this movie?
