Variety - 03/31/1982
"...The film is a marvelous showcase for Pryor's special blend of seriocomedic turns....Pryor's performance is really worth seeing..."

Product Description:

Pryor effectively mixes poignant drama & slapstick comedy in this story of a P.O.W. who returns home to find his old life shattered. He takes revenge on society by beginning an ill-fated life of crime.

Plot Synopsis:

POW Eddie Keller returns to the US to discover that everything he once had is gone: his wife's dumped him for someone new, his daughter considers him a stranger, his mother's seriously ill, and his business is kaput. The only good news in his life is Toni, a prostitute who really cares for him; but all her entreaties cannot prevent Eddie from turning to a life of crime. Before too long, he has to make a choice: which more important -- morality or hard, cold cash'
