Review by Gregory (posted on 16-Mar-2005)

I first saw this movie on Showtime when I was 13 in 1981. It was at night, my parents were all asleep and I remember I carried the THICKEST towel we had to muffle my laughter because I KNEW I was gonna bust a gut!

Sure enough, Richard didn't disappoint me, kept me rolling the whole time with tears streaming from laughing so hard. My dad came downstairs and I quickly turned the TV off and hid from sight because I knew he wasn't gonna do a complete surveilliance of the living room. He went back to bed, I saw th rest of this hilarious display of comedic genius and went to school the next day in the best moods I've even had. Richard Pryor knew how to make somebody remember that life can be a funny thing and tragedy CAN be transformed into triumph.
