Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor
I often wonder when I see a funny movie how much was written and how much was improvised. A lot of times I try to think if other actors could have made that movie as funny or even funnier. As terrific as Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper were in The Hangover I could picture any of a number of actors who could have pulled those parts off and that seems to be the case more often than not when it comes to comedies. Still, occasionally, I see something and know no other people in the world could have made that as funny as that was. Tomorrow Stir Crazy comes out of BlueRay and if ever there was a movie that was carried and made by the two leads this is it. Check out this clip when they find out the have been sentenced to 125 years in prison ...
Absolutely one of those scenes where you know the director just gave them the set up and said "action". This movie is filled with this kind of obvious yet still hysterical stuff. If you haven't seen it do yourself a favor and watch it soon.
