Fred Williamson as director and writer doesn't do much good to himself or Richard Pryor in Adios Amigo
12 February 2012 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Having previously wrote and produced Boss N!gger-which I highly enjoyed-here Fred Williamson adds director to his resume. Unfortunately, unlike the work I just mentioned, Adios Amigo is more of a mess narratively with Fred a frequent fall guy for Richard Pryor's con games that aren't very funny with Richard's lines mostly improvised. I half thought when Pryor's character would encounter an old man named Noah (Thalmus Rasulala in convincing aging makeup) and his nubile young women that there might be some raunchy humor but results there and pretty much the rest of the picture was tepid at best. Another disappointment was the mention in the credits of The Ink Spots making an appearance but they don't sing here just do some steps and finger snappin' or that's what it looked like to me. Really, I just can't recommend Adios Amigo.
