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.
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.
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.
