The Toy

A mediocre remake of a French comedy, this stars Richard Pryor as a fun-loving individual, who becomes a human plaything for a spoiled rich kid (Scott Schwartz). He also has to deal with his past meddling with the boy's zillionaire father (Jackie Gleason). Of course, there is always time for a little havoc.

It does have some humorous moments, but mostly it's full of useless "you-can't-buy-friendship" lectures. Not only is it not terribly funny, it's a throwback for Pryor to the days of minstrel shows. Gleason is probably the only spark of life here. But not even a spark could breath life into this stale movie.

My Rating = Two Stars
