Car Wash is about a close-knit group of employees who one day have all manner of strange visitors coming onto their forecourt, including Richard Pryor as a preaching 'wonder-man' who is loved by most but loathed by one, and a man who looks like a thief by the way he is holding his bottle, but it is really his urine sample as he is off to the hospital.

Outstanding, lively, well-paced, good-humored and very, very funny ensemble comedy. It has hardly any plot, but lots of great characters, lots of good laughs that keep on coming, and some memorable moments. Some genuinely touching moments fit in well and don't derail the comedy. It has an award-winning sound-track, too.
