Remember as a youngster, i taped this on sky one evening (before all that categorized channel bullshit) and would watch it religiously, to the point where I knew the shit line for line. Great 70s gem

As a teen I saw this on a double bill – with American Graffiti – at the ABC theatre on brodaway Bradford – it was just before Golum & Globus – didnt pay their taxes allegedly – and had the whole abc cinema network shut down – after seeining it i went back and saw it over and over – it was amazing – that music of whitfields & Rose Royce was amazing – when i'm fed up i still pop my dvd on a reflect on things – its one film that chhers me up ! – I have got myself a couple of tickets to see Rose Rose in Leeds Yorkshire UK end of July cannot wait !

rachael ray should play Marsha, jay leno as the car was big boss, ice cube as the supervisor of the car wash movie. jameel white as the fly, Tracey Morgan as hippo, Rupaul as Lindy, Zac Efron as Irwin, Kevin hart as Duane Ryan Reynolds as Kenny Marshas dream crush and Steve Harvey as daddy rich remake must be in new York. don't forget Morgan Freeman plays fan of the daddy rich radio show in new York location. if Ghostbusters was great this will be too
