A day in the life of the employees at a Los Angeles car wash. Not all of the employees are black, there’s a Mexican American and a Native American also out on the line. The man with the pop bottle is not thought to be a thief, but a madman known as “the pop bottle bomber”. The chase around the car wash with the pop bottle and the scene with the “mummy” in the car are two classic scenes. Richard Pryor as the money-hungry preacher “Daddy Rich” is loosely based on a famous Los Angeles money-hungry preacher from the 1970’s. One of the DJ’s heard in the movie is J.J. Jackson who later went on to be one of the original MTV Vee-Jays in the early 1980’s.
