Which Way Is Up? Reviews:

It's been about 30 years since I almost watched the entirety of this film (the only reason I couldn't was because I was 13 at the time and my mom wouldn't allow me watch the rest when she caught me watching a sex scene!) so actually that I have indeed done so on Netflix Streaming, I'm sooo glad I did! Richard Pryor gotta of had the time of his life making this film with director Michael Schultz especially when-in the only time in his career-he portrayed three characters: Leading user Leroy Jones, his father Rufus, and reverend Lenox Thomas. The storyline deals with unions, promotions, adultery, sexual problems, and trying to search a balance of it all. Leroy has his hands full dealing with wife Margaret Avery as Annie Mae, Lonette McKee as social activist Vanetta, and Marilyn Coleman as Sister Sarah, wife of the reverend. Pryor's scenes with Ms. McKee are the most romantic, while his sequences with Ms. Avery and Ms. Coleman are the most comic. But they all have some poignancy about them that makes one care for them. Pryor himself is at his greatest with his takes on every hero and the method Leroy changes his demeanor for whatever occasion. In another words, I found Which Method Is Up? quite hilarious so yeah, that's a high recommendation.


Pyror was genius! Seeing it again after 30+ years you have to really respect what was important to produce this film in 1970's climate! Also satisfied to see Bebe Drake, Margaret Avery, Marilyn Coleman, and of course Vonnetta McKee. Margaret and Vonnetta went on to have their own successes and I've everytime been proud of them but Bebe and Marilyn have turned out to be hero actresses for black womanhood! I love them! They may not have the same name recognition as some of the others but they have truly endured through time! They are in so many various roles and bring something various to them all. They were outstanding in WWIU but I look forward to seeing them wherever they turn up!


Between 1975 and 1978,Richard Pryor was at the top of his constructive minigame and this 1977 movie was one of his greatest and one of his most underrated.In this film,Pryor assumes three roles(a fruit picker turned corporate flunky,his randy father and a shady preacher).A gotta see for any pryor fan.I recently saw this movie again on BET Films and I laughed just as difficult as I did on the first viewing in 1977.Check it out.
