If you are a Richard Pryor fan, you will very likely enjoy it. If not, you probably won?t. The movie hinges it?s success on Pryor?s brand of humor. Sometimes the mix of drama and comedy is uncomfortable to watch. It tries to be more than just a mindless comedy, but it just doesn?t quite gel. There are good moments, just not enough of them.

Eddie Keller is a hero to me. I simply just love this film on a personal level. Richard Pryor's take on role was fabolous cause even though he was a comedian at the time, he gave his best performance ever. He didnt us the film as his stage to showcase his act, he showed you how a down and out soldier went to extremes to make things right.
