For Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder, this movie marked a resumption of the comic rapport that began when the pair played opposite, and off, each other in Silver Streak (1976). Pryor said: "Certain actors just naturally connect with each other. After the fun we had in Silver Streak (1976), the only question was when, not if, we would put it together again." Wilder expressed it his own way: "Our instincts seem to coalesce. The difference, this time, is that 'Stir Crazy' is an out-and-out comedy, while Silver Streak (1976) was a mixture of mystery, adventure and romance." Pryor interjected: "You might say that our Pryor picture was a ball, but this one is Wilder." Wilder responded: "You might", needles Wilder, "But you'll say anything." See more »

Many people considers Silver Streak as the best Pryor-Wilder movie. I don't think so. Silver Streak is Gene Wilder's movie, Richard Pryor didn't get much of the show. In Stir Crazy both of them get equally of the show. Both of them were very funny, though (as I noticed) they were a little different from nowadays comedians, maybe that was even better. I think at that time comedy makers knew what they are doing, because all of the jokes worked, not like in most of the nowadays comedies. My favorite scene was where Gene Wilder's and Richard Pryor's characters where pretending that they are bad, you won't see such a funny stuff in nowadays movies.
