Product Description

Product Description

Richard Pryor stars in this wild, wacky and warmhearted road movie with a difference, which later inspired a TV series. When budget cuts close a children's home in Philadelphia, Vivian Perry (Emmy Award winner Cicely Tyson ) decides to help eight special-education students by taking them to her aunt's farm outside Seattle. In desperate need of a driver/mechanic for the bus, she teams up with Joe Braxton (Pryor), an equally desperate ex-con who hates women and children. Fueled by Roberta Flack's songs, the action is fast and funny as this delightfully mismatched group battles the bus, the law, the Ku Klux Klan and even each other on their way west. But it all ends happily for the kids, the con and the straitlaced lady.

Of all the films in which Richard Pryor was the main star in the 1970s and 1980s, this was one of the only ones to come close to capturing his impishly mercurial stage presence as a standup comedian--and also to aspire to coherency, perhaps because it was cowritten by Pryor and award-winning playwright Lonne Elder III. Pryor plays an ex-convict who gets strong-armed into helping a schoolteacher (Cicely Tyson) drive a busload of physically and emotionally handicapped children across the country. Though there is the kind of irascible adult-cute kid interplay you would expect, Pryor makes it work, even as he finds the heart in a ne'er-do-well who discovers a talent for caring for others. Watch for the scene in which Pryor finds himself face to face with a hooded group of Klansmen and comically finesses the situation. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Richard Pryor has become an icon , in the comedic world , of standup. However , his film work displays sheer emotional and electric moments , that can be compared to catching a tornado and training it to turn , only when you photograph it. In lamens terms , he portrays his characters with an emotional depth that only an individual who's been through the ropes of life , can show....and come across as spontaneous and believable. From , Lady Sings The Blues , Some Kind Of Hero , Which Way is Up ? , Stir Crazy , and Bust'in Loose , we get to see Pryor double as a comedic talent and dramatic actor. Whereas , Bust'in loose doesn't display the raunchy humorous side of Pryor , it does give us some very funny scenes and dramatic ones as well. Bust'in Loose , can be appreciated for two reasons. One , if you've seen Pryor's infamously hilarious raunchy stand up , or earlier works , you can apprecite seeing him in a role that doesn't call for over the top profanity and innuendo's. Second , the film can stand on it's own merits , because Pryor and Tyson light up the screen and provide so much chemisrty , that even if you've never heard of them before , you'd still enjoy the film. Bust'in Loose is written and acted fantastically. The only downside , is a scene in which , it becomes a slapstick farce , which takes away from the film. I mean , c'mon ? Cicily Tyson , making a light bulb , light up , in her mouth ? Ridiculous. That's why this film gets a three star rating , instead of a five. I felt betrayed by the writer or director , for even going there , after I've invested over an hour , getting to know the characters. Whoever stuck that in the was a bad choice. Probably the ( obviously )insecure director , because that idiotic , buffoon-riddled, scene didn't get edited.Read more ›

Richard Pryor does gives an heartwarming performance in a comedy, often realistic film about a man all is life, been living as a theft. One day, he cought him red handed stealing from a department store. They give him a parole, if he could drive all the way to the country with social worker(Played by Cicely Tyson) and a group of street kids. He accepts but given an very old school bus, has a lot of problems and kids are given him, a hard time to deal with. But he gets to know them with helping and talking there problems to them, even he talks about his own pass. Telling them about his hard times and difficult life, have been through in all these years in the streets.
The film does have some strong moments. Easy mix of slapstick humour and drama in surprisingly good way. Likable Characters of kids in the movie. The picture does often have street language but does have the heart of a family movie. I haven`t seen all the films of Richard Pryor but he gives a memorable role and probably his best role to date. Definitely a movie worth watching with friends and family. Grade:B+.

This movie is my favorite movie, it makes me life but it also keeps lifes blessings in perspective. I am not a person that likes to watch movies over and over again, but this is the best. This movie so funny you will be laughing hours later over the realism and perfection of acting. The kids in this movie where underrated during this time and should have been commended highly of their wonderful performance. This movie is what makes true legends like RICHARD PRYOR AND CICELY TYSON who they are today and forever will have the effects on America.
This movie is wonderful

After trying to hold up a home electronics store (for forty five minutes in broad daylight) Joe Braxton (Richard Pryor) is offered an alternative to prison - drive teacher Vivian Perry (Cicely Tyson) and a busload of troubled kids across the country to a new life. Despite his initial resistance, Pryor soon warms to Tyson and the kids - and they to him. Save for a few raw words from Pryor, this is great for the whole family as Pryor admonishes the youngsters that they all have the power to "be somebody".
