Not for kids, but Richard Pryor movies never are

The movie isn’t suitable for children , but if you know Richard Pryor , his movies aren’t made for kids. The movie is funny , and childish it’s a must see. Don’t expect it to be like nutty professor or daddy day care

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much swearing
age 9+

Classic Movie that's FUN and delivers an important message about the importance of friendship
