" Rodeos, prison, and chicken suits. Wilder and Pryor were the best comedy duo in the 70s/80s"

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? IT SUCKS!” A few months later, while the film was in post-production, Pryor nearly killed himself by fire in a notorious incident in his H"

""Yea, that's right! That's right! We bad!" Pinnacle of the Wilder/ Pryor teaming. The great chemistry between the two puts them up with the great comedy teams of the modern era. Poitier's direction deftly transitions thru many subgenres --buddy, road, and prison. A silly film, but one where the magic still holds up."
