    What an outrageous story of a family's move across the country, and Pryor is hilarious, as is the rest of the cast, which includes Randy Quaid and Dana Carvey! I highly recommend this movie, it's hilarious.

    For as simple as this movie was, it was still very funny. What a great cast led by the hilarious Richard Pryor. Really good funny lines as well.

    Randy Quaid as the next door neighbor with the 6am jet engine lawnmower and other antics encourages Richard Pryor to sell his house and MOVE on up like George & Weezy. Follows the antics and problems he runs into trying to move all their stuff from one city to another. Hiring Dana Carvey to drive his SAAB, the moving company, Great stuff! Stacey Dash is in this one as well as her first role....WHAT Stacey Dash posed nude in Aug, 2006 Playboy? Anyone have that back issue? Another one I need to rewatch now.
