"3 & ½ out of 4 stars … a sunny, lively comedy." – Roger Ebert
Everybody is cleaning up and getting down in this classic comedy from the decade that brought you the tube top, the polyester suit and lots of good times!
It's just a typical day in the lives of the employees, customers and passersby of a Los Angeles car wash. There's a would-be robbery... an assembly line of the weirdest, baddest, shadiest characters you've ever met... and lots of '70s music to pass the hours till quitting time. Featuring outrageously hilarious performances by George Carlin, Professor Irwin Corey, the Pointer Sisters, and Richard Pryor as Daddy Rich – a flamboyant Reverend who preaches the goodness of the dollar – Car Wash is a timeless classic celebrating an era devoted to living life in the fast lane.
Why We Love It
“Car Wash is a film that many older fans still love and enjoy nowadays, but Shout Select’s release is bound to gain it some new ones, both young and old. It’s dated, or rather completely soaked in its own era, but the characters and the music are all that really matters. It’s good fun and a welcome title on the Blu-ray format.” – Tim Salmons, The Digital Bits
“…the new extras are very nice, and the original artwork and newer one with reversible covers makes for good eye candy, and the technical specs are very VERY nice for a beat up old 70s comedy. Definitely worth checking out.” – Michael Scott, AV NIRVANA
“The good people at Shout! Factory have provided a number of impressive supplements for a non-blockbuster release…Recommended for fans, who will truly appreciate this Shout! Factory Blu-ray…” – Daniel Lee, High-Def Digest
“Shout Select’s Blu-ray release is colorful and sharp, with solid extras.” – C.D. Workman, Rock Shock Pop
“Car Wash is a breezy, tune-filled comedy that should appeal to fans of the Blaxploitation movement as well as the narrative style of Altman. There are a number of actors and comedians in the diverse cast who went on to become more famous so this makes the movie, at minimum, a curiosity worth checking out. Shout has assembled the best overall package on home video that the film has received to date. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.” – Dr. Stephen Larson, Blu-ray.com
