Critic Reviews for Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • The film's inevitable compressions, made worse by the amount of empty, self-congratulatory celebrity blathering, mean that every Pryor fan will have omissions to complain about.

  • Zenovich has assembled better-than-usual talking heads, all sympathetic even when dishing the worst bad behavior.

  • The movie is packed with articulate people who knew Pryor well, but the clips of the Man himself will leave you weeping for more.

  • If fans want more, they'll have to read the eye-opening autobiography, "Pryor Convictions." In the meantime, consider "Omit the Logic" a very hearty and worthwhile aperitif.

  • Omit the Logic is more likely to omit laughter as it focuses on Pryor's false career starts, drug use, depression, multiple marriages and divorces, his struggles with MS, and the infamous incident in which the comedian set himself on fire.

  • This may be a jet-ski ride over Pryor's life rather than a deep-sea dive but it offers a firm celebration that's likely to encourage those who have watched it to seek out more material from the man himself - and that can never be a bad thing.
