It’s episode 77! Returning guests Jason and Tiernan (from the award-winning Stop and Search and Partly Political podcast respectively) are back for Jason’s choice, Stir Crazy starring Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder. A childhood favourite (and as old as Kobi) of Jason’s that he decided to revisit and bring to the Flixwatcher team. I say team as Tiernan neglected to watch it! It’s surprisingly not racist, risky, misogynistic or homophobic as you might predict for its era, one of the other things it isn’t is funny. From the promise of Pryor, Wilder and Sidney Poitier you expect much, much more.
[supsystic-tables id='79'] At 1 hour AND 51 minutes is very, very long for an unfunny, ridiculous caper and this is reflected in its very low scores. Overall Stir Crazy scores 2.37, not the lowest but still quite low. For Pryor and Wilder completists only. What do you guys think? Have you seen Stir Crazy? What did you think?

It has to be Putting on the Ritz, but there is no Gene Wilder version so we have added the Mel Torme Version!
