Scrolling through my Twitter feeds today, I noticed an article from CNN today about former congressman Ron Paul suggesting that "None of the Above" should be on the 2016 Presidential ballot. Now if you've never seen the 1985 comedy "Brewster's Millions", the term "None of the Above" played a part in the movies plot. In the movie, the main character joins a protest against two candidates running for mayor and suggests "None of the Above" to be on the ballot. It appears and "None of the Above" wins, forcing the city to choose two new candidates for mayor.

It's okay if he's seen Brewster's Millions.

If he's seen The Toy, Moving or Superman III, I would be worried.

Richard Pryor's live shows I think showed him at his funniest, though his brand of humor wasn't for everyone.

Live on the Sunset Strip is still considered the Last Waltz of standup-concert movies.

But it was because Pryor wanted to leave his "angry" humor behind after he cleaned up from drugs that he started taking the "Poor lovable shlub" roles, which--in addition to being the kind of crap Eddie Murphy would take today--was just so out of character for the Pryor we knew.
In one movie, his character tries to flip his boss off with the index finger, and later realizes "I got the wrong one!"...Prompting one critic to ask "Richard Pryor gets a profanity wrong?...In what universe?? "
Bustin' Loose is still the best transitional comedy between the "hip angry" urban-comedy Pryor, and the "poor nice-guy" Pryor when he went mainstream.
