Editorial Reviews

Richard Pryor stars in this wild, wacky and warmhearted road movie with a difference, which later inspired a TV series. When budget cuts close a children's home in Philadelphia, Vivian Perry (Emmy Award winner Cicely Tyson ) decides to help eight special-education students by taking them to her aunt's farm outside Seattle. In desperate need of a driver/mechanic for the bus, she teams up with Joe Braxton (Pryor), an equally desperate ex-con who hates women and children. Fueled by Roberta Flack's songs, the action is fast and funny as this delightfully mismatched group battles the bus, the law, the Ku Klux Klan and even each other on their way west. But it all ends happily for the kids, the con and the straitlaced lady.

I hadn't thought about this movie for some time. I was in this movie. I was a King County deputy (outside Seattle) at the time working off duty for set security on this movie and was invited to be in it. I am one of the two cops (the one with all the hair) at the end of the movie confronting Richard Pryor. It was very interesting being involved in this movie. I got to meet Cycely and Richard Pryor and actually small talk for a bit with them between scenes. As far as the movie itself - I enjoyed it. It is funny and actually touching in parts. There were parts of this movie that were redone at a later date to "soften" it up some for the new improved Pryor (after his accident). The kids in this movie were great and some of them were actually disabled to some degree. Yes, I agree it would be interesting to see how some of the kids are doing now..24 yrs later. By the way, I don't have all the hair anymore. It is interesting to watch a movie filmed in your home area. Watch this movie...it is worth it. Sherlock

This movie was funny, and made for everyone. I would be happy to
share it with my daughter. One of the few movies Richard stars in for a kid crowd. Ms.Tyson plays the mother role to perfection
with all the childrens roles shining. I think this movie was a
big hit for foster children.It showed the system in a funny way.
Again, it was so funny. I think every home should own this movie. Richard of old, with the funny for all time.

A nice feel good movie from my youth. I made my kids watch it with me and, after a few complaints from my 13 year old as to why we were watching an old movie, she too enjoyed it. Yes, there were a few curse words and it's rated R but you know what you're getting yourself into with Richard Pryor and it was no more than you hear on prime time tv. It also has a great soundtrack by Roberta Flack.

Love, Love, Love this movie!!! This is one of my absolute favorite movies from when I was a kid and I have not one bad thing to say about it! I could watch it over and over again...and trust me, I have been! Yes, I could have DVR'd it, BUT, they always edit it down for time when shown on tv and edit out swearing (which, by today's standards is nothing). The DVD is unedited and it's better in every way. I'm now able to share this movie and my love for Richard Pryor with my kids.

I love Richard Pryor the comedian. Richard Pryor the actor is just okay. Basically, Richard Pryor's character is driving a group of bad a** kids to a farm. Their guardian played by Cicley Tyson has stolen them so she can keep them together. The movie definitely has some funny moments as Richard interacts with the kids. The unrealistic part of the movie is the thought that you can take kids and everyone whips their hands and everything is good. In this case, all of the characters would be in jail! It's also interesting how Pryor's early movies reference the clan quite often. Definitely a sign of the times.

Richard Pryor does gives an heartwarming performance in a comedy, often realistic film about a man all is life, been living as a theft. One day, he cought him red handed stealing from a department store. They give him a parole, if he could drive all the way to the country with social worker(Played by Cicely Tyson) and a group of street kids. He accepts but given an very old school bus, has a lot of problems and kids are given him, a hard time to deal with. But he gets to know them with helping and talking there problems to them, even he talks about his own pass. Telling them about his hard times and difficult life, have been through in all these years in the streets.
The film does have some strong moments. Easy mix of slapstick humour and drama in surprisingly good way. Likable Characters of kids in the movie. The picture does often have street language but does have the heart of a family movie. I haven`t seen all the films of Richard Pryor but he gives a memorable role and probably his best role to date. Definitely a movie worth watching with friends and family. Grade:B+.

Wow. Never seen this one. Pryor is one of the greatest stand up comedians ever. But having said that, I think the run of movies with Mr. Pryor and his friend Gene Wilder was the best work of both these guys.

This is one of my favorite movies from my childhood. I laugh my you-know-what off everytime I see it. Certain parts of it are over-the-top funny in my opinion. I won't give anything away, but this is a great movie.
