Stir Crazy is a comedy about two New Yorkers who try to find a new life in the desert Southwest and ultimately end up in jail. Skip Donahue (Gene Wilder) and Harry Monroe (Richard Pryor) are trying to make it in the entertainment business in New York City. After years of failing, both decide to make a break for Hollywood. On their trip there, they take a part-time job dressing up as birds in a promotion for a bank. Two criminals end up stealing their outfits and robbing the bank, framing Skip and Harry for the crime. They are quickly sentenced to prison, where Skip's latent ability to ride horses gives them a reprieve from the brutal treatment of the guards. While their lawyer works desperately to get their convictions overturned, Skip and Harry conspire with their fellow prisoners to escape at the annual prison rodeo. Will they succeed in their crazy scheme or are both men destined to spend the rest of their days behind bars?moreless
