To be honest, I had no idea what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Richard Donner, I thought I should give it a try. First of all, to my surprise, I discovered it is actually a remake of a French movie ('Le jouet') from 1976. Obviously, I haven't seen the original version but this remake was not bad at all. Still, I keep hearing Richard Pryor was awesome and all but I still wa... read more

Tier Ranking: The Worst Films of 1982 - 1983 (44 movies items)

"Critics thought that it was not only one of the worst films of the year, and It was muddled and unfunny collision of two comedic titans, The Toy is unsuitable for children -- or anyone else seeking entertainment. My thoughts? Some felt it was very hilarious, I felt it was bracingly unfunny. And easily one of the worst films, to have Richard Pryor in it. At least, Superman III was entertaining."

"Unemployed journalist Jack Brown is attempting to make ends meet as the night janitor in a ritzy department store owned by Louisiana millionaire U.S. Bates. On his annual visit to his father's store, Bates' pampered son, Eric, is told he can choose one item in the toy department. To everyone's horror, he chooses Jack. Paid handsomely to spend one week with the troublesome kid, Jack soon discovers the roots of Eric's bad behaviour. This is the Hollywood version of a French comedy that was made i"
