Greased Lightening is a great movie, a bio of a black driver and the struggles he had to put up with- Richard Pryor shines and shows a different side to himself. Just so you know this isn't a comedy movie.
Moving is though- and even though this was towards the end of Pryor's professional career, Moving has plenty of laughs- sure most of them are cheap, but Moving does a decent enough job.
The Mack is a classic exploitation of the 70s. Was nice to see years back when Quentin Tarantino was stunned that film buff Jonathan Ross had not seen this movie. Sure there were better blaxploiatation flicks out there, but The Mack is a good one.
Uptown Saturday Night has a great cast and for the first hour or so is pretty good. Its unofficial sequels were better though. This is a Richard Pryor box set, but just so you know Pryor plays only a small cameo in Uptown Saturday Night.
This set is great to have for any film fans of the 70s and 80s and anyone who loves Pryor's less known works.
In short Arlo Pear loses his job, picks up another job but has to move his entire life and family to Boise, Idaho. Everything that goes wrong does - including criminal removal men, a man with seven personalities who drives Arlo's treasured car (and wrecks it!) and a daughter who will do everything in her power not to move at all....
This film, simply put, is a comedy masterpiece...
Now onto the other three films....
