| Richard Just Goes To Show How Versatility Can Make A Great Movie!
Richard Pryor assumes three roles in a farce about a California orange picker, and boy does Pryor have great acting versatility! Pryor first becomes a labor union hero then a corporate womanizing flunky. Pryor is at his best as the grumpy old man father this is one of the funniest roles I have ever seen Pryor play. This is a film that shows that sometimes life can take on great changes in the way of family, relationships, jobs, and status. Only in the end to once again return to our beginnings to understand my comments watch the film you will see what I mean. To sum it up you will enjoy this nice comedy if your a Pryor fan you will really appreciate his versatile ability as an actor!
