Richard Pryor stars in this wild, wacky and warmhearted road movie with a difference, which later inspired a TV series. When budget cuts close a children's home in Philadelphia, Vivian Perry (Emmy® Award-winner Cicely Tyson) decides to help eight special-education students by taking them to her aunt's farm outside Seattle. In desperate need of a driver/mechanic for the bus, she teams up with Joe Braxton (Pryor), an equally desperate ex-con who hates women and children. Fueled by Roberta Flack's songs, the action is fast and funny as this delightfully mismatched group battles the bus, the law, the Ku Klux Klan and even each other on their way west. But it all ends happily for the kids, the con and the straitlaced lady.
In this wacky road movie, an ex-con is given a second chance at freedom when he is hired by a straitlaced schoolteacher to drive a group of special education students across the country. Stars Richard Pryor.
One con... eight kids... one outrageous journey! Richard Pryor is a desperate ex-prisoner who is hired to drive a bus of special-ed students cross-country in this fast and funny road movie.
