Car Wash

Everybody is cleaning up and getting down in this classic comedy--the first "disco slacker" movie--from the decade that brought you the tube top, the polyester suit and lots of good times.

Fresh: It was both a riot and surprisingly had something poignant to say about race relations.

Fresh: Critics seemed to like this less than audiences; personally, I had a ball.

One star for five minutes of Richard Pryor! The rest is quite boring.

A fine blaxploitation-era comedy, which juggles an amazing number of characters with almost no confusion whatsoever, with subplots and a jokes on as many different levels of appeal as there are characters. Lively and entertaining.
