Who needs Hollywood? I hear they're really nuts out there.

A piece of music in the scene where Skip and Harry make their getaway and notice Len and Meredith coming towards them was heard on the theatrical and video version, but not the 1999 DVD. It's restored on the Blu-Ray by Image Entertainment. See more »
Recently i bought a DVD-recorder. As a stunt the shop sold it at a special price, together with a selection of Movies on DVD. One of these DVD's is "Stir Crazy". I watched the film again, this time together with my 13-years old son and a friend of his. The boys were rolling on the floor with laughter, so one can definitely say that this is a timeless comedy, that never ages. The film always leaves me with a good feeling and i have seen that it still works, even with kids these days. The acting is superb, the dialog continually funny, the prison setting convincing and an extra credit should go out to Jobeth Williams' small but heat-warming part. Guaranteed to bring a little sunshine to a rainy day.
