Car wash employees and a local pimp are the main focus of this outdated, overrated comedy.

Adventures of car wash employees and a local pimp. It's considered a classic but I think too many better comedies have come along since this comedy.

My #1 movie of all time. The careers started from this film alone begat some of the all time greatest films and careers.

Don't expect Richard Pryor or George Carlin to be on screen much. Almost zero story revolving their characters. Other than that, could have been better and obviously influenced some later films like Friday, etc.

Just really a hodgepodge of dumb oneliners and situations. Couldnt get into it at all.

The happenings at the local car wash supported by a dominant soul soundtrack. A slight divergence with mostly stereotypical characters. Carlin and Pryor do not lend as much as you would hope for.

Basically a plotless movie that is still a lot of fun. Richard Pryor will be the most recognizable face in the movie in a huge ensemble cast that will take you on a journey back to the 1970's. Don't take it too seriously and enjoy the ride through the carwash and maybe have fun to see if you can recognize all the players in the cast.

A funny movie of a day and a life of these car-wash employees. (Ps: the title song isn't bad ether)

Car Wash is a funny film. It is about a close-knit group of employees who work at a car wash. Franklyn Ajaye and Richard Pryor give excellent performances. The script is well written. Michael Schultz did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed watching this motion picture because of the humor. Car Wash is a must see.

Somewhat more difficult to watch without fidgeting 20 years after last seeing it. Star for the signature tune and TC's 'king afro.

Worth finding and watching!

This 70s comedy about a day at a car wash in which predominantly black people work is pretty funny. It holds up surprisingly well actually, which given how it has so many trendy for the time gags and storylines is pretty impressive. It is also fun to see Richard Pryor and George Carlin in small, almost cameo like, roles.

Commentary of the working stiff. High energy characters, with a mostly chill atmosphere.
