Hardly the finest version of this old yarn

Classic Richard Pryor

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat
Spirituality and Practice

Alex Sandell

A film of unrealized potential.

Great to see Walter Hill shifting genres. Pryor is a standout.

San Francisco Examiner

A flat, gutless remake.

Scott Weinberg
eFilmCritic.com

A simplistic remake of an oft-told tale. Pryor does PG like porn stars do Shakespeare.
