Did You Know?

Originally scripted as taking place in New York City. The movie prepped for two months and shot 6 weeks in New York. On the last night of location filming, Peter Bogdanovich received a phone call from his agent at about midnight letting him know he was being replaced as director. After reviewing footage with the replacement director, it was determined that none of the New York footage was usable and the script was rewritten to be shot entirely in Los Angeles.See more »

Pryor and Wilder at Their Near Best, 25 July 2010
Author: Steve Pulaski from United States

Another You is considered the last of both worlds in terms of Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder. Pryor appeared in a few movies as a cameo after this, but not many and Wilder just quit after this and started doing few TV films, but never did another theatrical film after this. Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder were accused of not giving it their all in this film. Pryor can be excused because of his illness during this which is noticeable. I really cant see how neither actor was good because they seemed to be enjoying themselves and having a blast.

Another You revolves around a man named Eddie Dash (Pryor) who is sent to take care of a mental patient named George who is mistaken for a man named Abe Fielding. Encouraged to play along by Eddie, George is now in the mix of a bookie and his "wife" who thought he was dead now believing he is "Abe Fielding". Eddie keeps encouraging George to lay along so he can get money and take expensive items from their house.

Pryor and Wilder play a hilarious duo who both cant be denied as one of the best comedy duos of 1980s. They worked on four movies together (Silver Streak, Stir Crazy, See No Evil, Hear No Evil, and Another You). Its a shock that they, like many duos most notably McManhon and Carso, did not get along. Wilder wrote in a book that Pryor was a big pain on set of Stir Crazy demanding nice treatment and even claiming racism for one thing. Its a surprise because their chemistry on camera is rare to find in a duo in Comedy.

I will watch Stir Crazy and Silver Streak soon, but it saddens me that both ended on a bad note. This was a flop and it really wasn't a bad film. Many critics hate this movie which isn't a surprise. Though this film is loaded with slapstick and has some cute one-liners, its amusing and the chemistry like stated it great. This wasn't as funny as See No Evil, Hear No Evil since its hard to beat that, but its still amusing. So to conclude this, Another You is another Comedy you should check out. Plus both Stephen Lang and Vanessa Williams give a good performance.

Starring: Richard Pryor, Gene Wilder, Mercedes Ruehl, Stephen Lang, and Vanessa Williams. Directed by: Maurice Phillips.
