Product Description

Pryor and Wilder, the funniest combination since Wilder and Pryor, are up to some more funny business in ANOTHER YOU. In their fourth comic outing together following the classics, Silver Streak, StirCrazy, and See No Evil, Hear no Evil, the two play George and Eddie, two liars who just can't seem to kick the habit. What begins as a few harmless lies leads the two into a labyrinth of hilarious complications involving a missing millionaire, his beautiful wife, a dangerous estate executive and a major mistaken identity crisis. As the lies pile up, so do the laughs in this star-powered comedy featuring the sexy Mercedes Ruehl (Big, Married to the Mob) and Stephan Lang (Last Exit to Brooklyn, The Hard Way). With Another You, Pryor and Wilder prove once again to be one of the great comedy teams of their generation - and that's no lie.

Amazon.com

A last attempt to squeeze some laughs out of the team of Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder, Another You mostly conjures up pleasant memories of Silver Streak and Stir Crazy. Pryor plays a con man forced to tend a pathological liar (Wilder), who's immediately mistaken as a missing millionaire--a mistake that could pay off big. The storyline actually holds promise as a classic screwball comedy outline, but the movie doesn't build any snap or crackle, and promising set-ups dribble away. Even the once-electric chemistry between the stars has faded. Wilder displays that eerie sadness and stillness he brings to his comedic roles, but here he looks stranded. Pryor's ferocious talent is muted and his onscreen energy is turned down low; his reliance on easy profanity feels a little desperate. This was his final starring role before illness took him out of movies. --Robert Horton

I am a huge fan of Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. I loved Stir Crazy and Silver Streak. When this movie came out, I made sure to see it on opening day. I have never been so disappointed in a movie.
This movie starts bad and gets worse. The script is so bad that Wilder and Pryor look like they're embarrassed to be acting in it. As the movie went on, I held on to what little hope I had that the movie would improve. It didn't. When I thought things couldn't get any worse, the yodeling scene came on. At that point, I too became embarrassed for having witnessed this.
I am only giving this film one star because Amazon has not allowed reviewers to give negative stars yet.

From the moment they joined forces in "Silver Streak" (1976), Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder were a match made in comedy heaven - followed by entertaining vehicles such as "Stir Crazy" (1980) and "See No Evil, Hear No Evil" (1989). Unfortunately, "Another You" proved one film too many. The Wilder-Pryor chemistry was offset by the latter's ill health in this troubled 1991 production - evoking sadness instead of laughter. Pryor should have been in a hospital rather than a soundstage and Wilder's misplaced manic energy cannot carry the load. An ignoble end to the team's movie career.

I got this movie in a three pack with other Pryror and Wilder movies. Needless to say this is the worst of the bunch. This movie is not really all that funny and is a bit confusing. I dont recommend this movie to anyone who wants too see a comedy. Stir Crazy or Hear No Evil See No Evil is a much better route.

At the time this film was made, Richard Pryor was ill and had but a few years to live; Gene Wilder was a man in his late sixties. Without knowing these facts until a moment ago, my reaction to the film was that Pryor lacked the energy that had characterized his earlier performances; Wilder still performed with zest, yet, it would seem to me, the phenomenon of which George Burns(regarding he and his wife, Gracie) and Jerry Lewis, among others, have spoken, that at a certain age, the characters with whom once they were very successful, now were too young for them to play credibly. Clearly Wilder found that the fey youthful character he had created no longer suited him. Nonetheless, there are enough funny routines here, enough good lines and visual action, to make this quite a pleasant diversion. Of course, it is not Silver Streak, but it is fun, and the last chance to see one of the good comedy teams in films. I particularly enjoyed Wilder's citation, so to speak, of some classic comedy routines (for example, that of Smith and Dale) early in the film, when he fell into his chronic liar persona.
I suppose before buying, renting or borrowing this disc, you should ask yourself whether you are going to be in a relaxed, receptive mood or a critical one. This is not a movie that will stand up to a sharply critical analysis.

Enjoyed Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder in other films but this one lack hitting my funny bone. Richard looked painfully ill in this flick which probably contributed to the lack of chemistry in humor among this men.

This is another one of Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor's funniest movies in the world. They are hilarious, and so is this movie. I didn't stop laughing through the whole movie. I love this movie, and also every other one with Pryor/Wilder in it. My favorite part of this movie was when Dave aka Abe Fielding, "comes back from the dead" and starts yodeling. If you want to laugh, watch this movie and every time you even think about it after you watch it, you'll crack up. I can't even see why that guy up there says it's boring.

This is a funny movie!!!! I bought it because I like the two main actors in the movie. I've never seen it till I added it to my collection of dvd's. It is a movie about George, who try's to live his life with out lies. Eddie's probation officer tells him he need's to spend time with George for community service. A few people think George is a man named Gabe. They try to give him a lot of money and a big house to live in. Along with a wife, who Gabe left five months ago. Eddie convinces George to play along and the lie's get bigger and funnier. In the end it was all a trick so Gabe's partner can make people think Gabe was back and kill him so he can get all of the money and own the business. But this being a funny movie you know George gets away with dying.

This film was the most recent for both its stars Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder. They did three other films together,1976's SILVER STREAK with Jill Clayburgh,1980's STIR CRAZY and 1989's SEE NO EVIL HEAR NO EVIL. In this film Pryor is a conman who befriends Wilder. Wilder's character does a great deal of lying(he plays a dual role). Great support from Stephen Lang and Mercedes Ruehl. Ruehl is Elaine,the wife of Wilder's character. Memorable scenes include Wilder's character being scared by Frankenstein in a haunted mansion,also faking a corpse at a funeral(he thanks those who attended). Vanessa Williams is Gloria,who Pryor's character takes romantic interest in. In the final scene,Pryor,Wilder,Ruehl and Williams are on vacation in Hawaii. Pryor and Wilder have a picture taken with them both holding a sign that reads "Partners Forever". Great film!
