Two Jailbirds Who Just Want out of the Cage.
One of the looniest pictures to come along in some time! STIR CRAZY teams two of the most brilliant and zany comic performers today: Richard Pryorand Gene Wilder. Skip (Wilder) and Harry (Pryor) have both been fired from their jobs, so they take off in their van for California to seek fame and fortune, but somewhere along the way the van conks out and they're broke and...well, they have to eat, right? So they land a gig as singing and dancing woodpeckers to promote a bank opening. When two bank robbers steal their costumes and stick up the bank, guess who gets the blame? Skip and Harry are carted off to the state pen for 125 years. They try to keep their sanity and their lives amidst: a sadistic warden, a hulking mass-murderer and an inter-prison rodeo - all with great hilarity.

"Pryor's worth the price...  The Motion Picture Guide

Editor's Note
New Yorkers, Skip Donahue and Harry Monroe, have no jobs and no prospects. They decide to flee the city and find work elsewhere, and land jobs as woodpeckers to promote the opening of a bank. When their feathery costumes are stolen and used in a bank robbery, they no longer have to worry about employment -- they're sent to prison! Soon our heroes, imprisoned with a wild assortment of inmates, are trying to make the best of a bad situation. With 120-year sentences, it certainly doesn't look as though they're getting out anytime soon.

STIR CRAZY represents some of Poitier's best directorial work, and has become an American classic. His pairing of Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor makes for an unforgettable duo whose humor is unrestrained and natural. The use of memorable character names like "Slowpoke" and "Caesar Gironimo" are signature touches of Poitier's.
