Great comedy from the disco era

I recently watched this movie with my grandpa and I was pleasantly surprised at the freshness of the comedy in the movie. Most of the jokes relied on slapstick humor and non-politically correct jokes but I especially loved the diverse representation of the state of black culture eight years following the assassination of Martin Luther King. Richard Pryor stole the whole show with the his outlandish charisma and musical number by the Pointer Sisters. The rawness of pointed 1970s humor is a long forgotten art form but it is perfectly captured in this film. I am only docking points because of the general disorganization of the film's plot and lack of any substantial overall conflict in the film moving the pace along. After a while I felt like I was watching a long episode of Saturday Night Live.

a day in the life or working at a car wash, all struggling to be appreciated and understood.

This movie is pure genius. Thanks to Director Michael Schultz and screenwriter Joel Schumacher. So many interesting unique characters all struggling in their own way. I was rooting for all of them. I believe this movie is underrated. It highlights the great comedians of the comedy store Los Angeles in the 70's. George Carlin, Franklin Ajaye, Richard Pryor, Professor Irwin, Garret Morris,Jack Kehoe, and utilizes an ensemble cast with unexpected depth and heartfelt climax. This movie also has one of my favorite performances of Richard Pryor at the peek of his talents. I love the soundtrack but I think it permeated pop culture and was somewhat overlooked as a film. Love it.

A True Fun Flick

I don't look at color, at age, or stardom, when i watch a movie. I watch a movie as the story they want to portray. A good story makes a movie great. A great story makes a movie legendary.

This is one of the great movies, representing the seventies. If you look besides the story, you'll see a great movie about a period in history. The cars, the clothes, the music: all representing a wonderful careless summer in the 70's.

More than that, it shows us a dramedy about a very close group of co-workers at their job, with very human, down-to-earth, daily problems that make up life.

Social and financial issues, relationships and friendships, professional attitude and problems cross the screen like a smooth sailingboat, riding the waves, meanwhile accompanied with some of the best funk, soul and disco music ever made.

From beginning to end, the movie focuses on the daily routine of personnel at a local car wash in a big city. While not a traditional comedy, it is more a relaxed popcornmovie, following a huge group of main characters.

What i liked most, was the tempo of the unfolding story, very relaxed and watchable, with comic undertones everywhere. If you want a true original feeling of the careless 70's, this is the movie for you.

Don't expect wonderful quality acting, but do expect a great piece of true movie history and an original setting for a fun movie.
