Movie Info

When con man Eddie Dash (Richard Pryor) is released from prison he's told to fulfill the required 100 hours of community service as the bodyguard/escort of a recently released mental patient (Gene Wilder). It's not too long before Wilder figures out a way to make a little dough at the expense of his impaired charge. Together they manage to get involved in an inheritance scam that's loaded with troubles and trials for all. It's apparent to most viewers that the Richard Pryor appearing in this film is a far cry from the actor most have seen previously; this is the first film undertaken by Pryor following a very serious illness.

All Critics (9)

Degenerative illnesses aren't very conducive to comedy...How bad was the movie? It made Gene Wilder quit show business.

Full Review… | July 25, 2011

The final and worst of the four Gene Wilder-Richard Pryor movies.

February 16, 2006

Pathetic attempt to recapture the vanished magic of a once-effective comedy team.

June 3, 2005
Fort Worth Business Press

Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor have been a brilliant team in the past. Such is so plainly not the case in this awful little misfire.

Audience Reviews for Another You

Final acting appearance of two of hollywoods most legendary actors Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder is good, not great. Ages 13+

4/4/2015: It was better than I expected, making it ok. There were a few funny moments and live the actors.

You can blame it on Pryor's illness, but 'Another You' would have stunk even when these guys were in their prime. Even during that period, Pryor/Wilder, as a duo, only had enough material to make, at best, a decent movie. This isn't that movie.
