Stir Crazy Reviews
VERDICT: "In The Zone" - [Mixed Reaction] These kinds of movies are usually movies that had some good things, but some bad things kept it from being amazing. This rating says buy an ex-rental or a cheap price of the DVD to own. If you consider cinema, ask for people's opinion on the film. (Films that are rated 2.5 or 3 stars)
Where this movie kinda goes off the rails is in the last third, which is mostly a rodeo scene. By this point, the film has dragged on a bit too long, and it slows to a glacial pace here in order to overemphasize an almost heist-like plot which is a bizarre transition from the first half of the film as a buddy comedy.
I liked Stir Crazy, but I'd rather have just watched two hours of Wilder and Pryor riffing at each other. Sad to say, but the plot gets in the way of the characters.
