Stir Crazy

Continuity mistake: Gene Wilder's pencil disappears in the classroom scene. (00:33:30)

Factual error: At the end of the movie, they break out of prison and their lawyer finds them at the hangar. She tells them they are free and they celebrate and get in the car and drive off. Innocent or not, they broke out of prison. I highly doubt red tape would allow an official to say, "Oh well, never mind, we were gonna release them anyway." (01:46:25)

Continuity mistake: When Harry says the word to trigger the bull, the bull runs out to him and has horns. But in another shot later, the bull has no horns.

Trivia: The prison scenes were filmed inside a real prison. The warden of the prison agreed to the use of the prison for the movie if 1/3 of the money was used to improve the prison. Richard Pryor talks about his experiences behind the scenes on his Here And Now DVD.


Skip Donahue: We tried to teach him charades! He didn't get it! He just didn't get it.

Harry Monroe: Yea, that's right! That's right! We bad.

Rory: That's Grossberger. The biggest mass murderer in the history of the southwest? My dear, he killed his entire family and all of his relatives in one weekend and then he killed some more people that reminded him of his family.

Question: Gene Wilder lost his job at the beginning cause he was annoying the customers. But why did Richard Pryor lose his? I can't remember the reason.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Because his employers discovered he had put grass (marijuana) in the salad and got all the dinner guests high. Well, he didn't, the cook did. But he brought it into the house so he was fired.
