Movie Info

The late, great Richard Pryor stars in this farcical comedy about a small-time businessman who feigns insanity to get out of prison, and poses as a doctor during a hospital blackout. Eddie (Pryor) was on the path to success when he made the mistake of dealing with a loan shark. Now, the judge is about to toss him in prison and throw away the key. When Eddie plays the crazy card, the guards transfer him to the psychiatric ward at a Staten Island hospital. Later, a hurricane plunges the hospital

Audience Reviews for Critical Condition

Not a great story but it has Richard Pryor in it so it?s an instantly great film even though it?s not very good.

    1. Eddie/Kevin: You're suffering from a severe case of full-of-shitness.
