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.

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.

As a showcase of Pryor's talent and influence, Omit the Logic is undeniably fun. It just feels a little slight given the massive cultural influence of its subject matter.

...you can forgive "Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic" from not delivering on several levels. Maybe ninety minutes just isn't enough time to cover the multi-faceted career of the legendary funnyman.

Audience Reviews for Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic

This is an interesting talking heads documentary, with rare footage and TV appearances I've never seen before which dispels a few misconceptions and factual errors. However, it isn't long enough and it skips years by the minute. It could and should have been a lot more comprehensive. It's still a must see for fans though.
