95- Stir Crazy [5.5]
Down-on-their-luck friends are given 125-year prison sentences after being framed for a bank robbery.
The teaming of Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor is a wonderful thing, but Stir Crazy is not. What starts off as a very funny comedy quickly becomes sillier and sillier as soon as the two enter prison. It’s interesting to watch Pryor be so subdued while Wilder is over the top, but I wish the whole rodeo subplot wasn’t a part of the movie.
