Clunky 1977 Richard Pryor comedy really looks dated now.

Kevin N. Laforest
Apollo Guide

As unfunny as it gets. Worse, it's misogynist and an embarrassment to the race.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

Pryor should have stuck with concert films.

Walter Chaw
Film Freak Central

An embarrassing Being There conceit married to blaxploitation and unionization.
