You know what...I am sick of people hating on Car Wash. Most of us loved it, and when watching it again, it plays as a homage to the funk of the 70's.
When I first saw Car Wash, I thought it was just a silly goofball movie but watching it again was special. The new DVD comes out may 15 I believe, and it will aim the flick to a hipper audience. Most of us loved the soundtrack, and it is unfair to call this movie "trash".
In my opinion, the director did a great job with Gary Stromberg and Joel Schumacher's ideas. Wonderful film...rent it today for Richard Pryors best work yet!
