Product description

After faking insanity to avoid jail a con man poses as a hospital doctor in the chaos of a power failure. Studio: Paramount Home Video Release Date: 02/13/2007 Starring: Richard Pryor Sylvia Miles Run time: 100 minutes Rating: R Director: Michael Apted

From the Back Cover

The symptoms: acute tickling of the funny bone and severe belly laughs. The diagnosis? Richard Pryor in "Critical Condition." Playing criminal who fakes insanity to avoid prison, Pryor ends up in a hospital mental ward. That's when the craziness starts as he escapes during a blackout and disguises himself as a doctor. Somehow Pryor brings order to Chaos even while performing unorthodox physical examinations, delivering a baby and using a helicopter for air conditioning!
