This movie is one of my favorites by Richard Pryor and I just truly love it. This is a movie that I can watch over and over again and never get tired of it. This movie is funny in every scene . Richard Pryor plays many roles in this film, his father, Leroy, The Reverend, and he plays them all well and he is very funny. This movie is so funny that it is indescribeable. He gets even with the Reverend for getting his wife "Annie Mae" pregnant. He also falls in love with Lonette McKee and she has a baby for him and everything gets all mixed up and crazy this is a hilarious movie I love it; It is one of my favorite movies by R.P and one of the funniest movies ever. I love you Richard thanks for the laughter hang in there I hope that you get well!!!! This is a great funny film This is a King of Comedy a True Legend I mean this is one of his best movies so therefore I would recommend anyone who enjoys R.P or if you are a fan of his to buy this video you would definitely enjoy it!!!!!

to call Blazing Saddles the funniest movie of all time. W.W.I.U. certainly holds it own in the hilarity category. Richard Pryor's funniest work for the simple reason that it gave him three vehicles for his expressive talents: an inept worker, promoted beyond his talents, the man's own father, a randy talk-it-the-way-I see it kind of guy and a philandering preacher with a platinum healing glove. These three characters interact with predictably insane results.
It is not the scatological and regularly profane Pryor that many people came to know, or the tragic cocaine-addicted Pryor of the late '70's. Also, he is not as cutting in political and social commentary he is later in his career (particularly in his standup). But this is vintage Pryor. Many of the lines of this movie are not just laugh-out-loud funny when heard while viewing the movie, but also when those lines said to any other movie cognoscenti.
Great to finally find this on DVD. A must have.

One of the funniest movies I ever seen. Pryor is at the top of his game. Still funny even after 26 years.

This movie has been dismissed by reviewers for its crudity. Well, "Which Way Is Up?" wasn't meant to appeal to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It was, unashamedly, made to appeal to the Black audience (there was no such thing as African-American in those days), and its total aim was to make that audience laugh! And it succeeded, spectacularly!! I was familiar with Richard Pryor from his toned-down appearances on The Flip Wilson Show, but this was a comedian who would do or say anything for a laugh. During his prime, no one was funnier than Richard Pryor, and he became a big star, so it wasn't just Black people who recognized his genius. This movie was his first opportunity to showcase his comedic vision in a starring role (acutally three of them). There are so many memorable scenes, and I don't want to give any of them away, so I won't. What I will say is that if you want to laugh, and you have any knowledge at all about Black culture thru the late seventies, and you haven't seen this movie, you've missed a treasure. The first time I watched it, I nearly split my side laughing. I'm talking about laughing so hard, I was crying; laughing so hard, my stomach hurt; laughing so hard, I hyperventilated; laughing so hard -- Well, you remember that phrase from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" about, "It's a gasser!"? Yeah, laughing THAT hard. For my money, Richard Pryor may have become more famous after "Which Way Is Up?", but he was never funnier than this!

Richard Pryor showcases his verstility in 3 different characters, that is very amusing and thought provoking at the same time. You could tell that Mudbone's influence is in pop's performance, and as usual likein "Uptown Saturday Night", and "Car-wash", Pryor is at his best as a crooked low-down preacher. It doesn't get any funnier than this. This is indeed the ultimate classic.

This is no doubt the funniest movie of all time. I've watched this movie on movie channels all my life and when I bought it on DVD it was like watching it for the first time. I showed this movie to my friends one day and ever since then each one has been begging me to borrow it. This movie is a classic and a must have.
