crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy...
27 August 2002 | by (Bristol, England) – See all my reviews

I was drawn to this film by it's bizarre title, and I wasn't disappointed. It's basically a collection of satirical sketches with a lot of clips of Richard Pryors at his very best, for some reason doing stand up comedy to the camera on a basketball court. It's arranged into topics which were important in America at the time of it's release, such as war, drugs, national pride (or lack thereof), police brutality, feminism and others. Some more narrow minded individuals may find this film to be intensely irritating nonsense, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, and found it to be at times hilarious, at others, poignant, but always weird.
