Somewhat of a step in the wrong direction for the Pryor / Wilder movies...
26 September 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

There was always a certain charm and dynamic energy to the teaming up between Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder, however "Another You" never really kicked into gear and went up to where their other movies together were. And it was a shame.

Gene Wilder is the main focus here in this movie, and Richard Pryor seems a little bit put into the background, not really given a chance to put in his full repertoire.

The story told in "Another You" is about Eddie Dash (played by Richard Pryor) who is a con artist who ends up having to do community work and look after George (played by Gene Wilder) as he is released from the asylum. George is a pathological liar and is really good at it, and the confusion becomes even bigger when people treat him as Abe Fielding, a rich entrepreneur and business man.

For a Pryor / Wilder movie, then the comedy is fairly weak and seems much more toned down compared to their other movies. As such, then "Another You" isn't really as enjoyable as their other collaborated movies.

There is a good ensemble of actors and actresses starring in "Another You", I will say that much. And people did good jobs with their given roles.

"Another You" is a part of the Pryor / Wilder legacy, yes, but individually, then this is the weakest of their collaborated movies. But still, it is entertaining enough for a single watching.
