I know there was a lot of controversy around this film, due to the factwe have a rich white man buying a black man for his son, but I thinkthat people just took this film way too seriously. Richard Pryor is oneof the best comedians of all time, so I definitely became interested inseeing this film af...
This film can be enjoyed by children due to it's obvious subject matter.Butit also has a subtheme about racial and class divisions. Depending on thescene, the film's racial connotations range from depicting the use ofblacksin subservient positions, to blatantly expressing that people can stillsellth...
Everyone wants to talk about the racial overtones. ***NEWS FLASH***White folks do not wake up every morning thinking about how to screwover black folks. The movie was great. I loved it then and I love itnow. I'm pretty sure the people who made this movie decided to make afunny movie with a great com...
I've seen this movie more times than I'd ever admit to, and the thing thatkeeps me watching is Pryor. He shines in just aboutevery scene he's seen, especially when he's paired withtheWonder-Wheel. It's just that the rest of the film isn't on thelevel.That's not to say it's a bad film; it's just not ...
"The Toy" is a remake of the French movie "Le Jouet," but writer CarolSobieskiand director Dick Donner have infused it with a racist theme that isspecificallyAmerican.US Bates (Gleason), a wealthy, powerful Louisiana industrialist purchases,JackBrown, a janitor (Pryor) to perform as an object for hi...
This is simply put, a fun, charming movie about a boy (Scott Schwartz) whodecides to make Richard Pryor his toy for a week while he visits hispowerful father Jackie Gleason. Simple gags, jokes and life lessons arewhat this movie is all about. It should be noted that Schwartz, who alsoplayed "Flick...
Is the toy Gleason or Pryor's best movie, don't make me laugh. But itshouldn't have been trashed the way it was and still is because a bunchof politically correct pseudo-intelectuals in the media resented theracial undertones. The weakest link in this movie is the script. itcould have been so much b...
Just rewatched this Richard Donner movie starring Richard Pryor andJackie Gleason after 30 years on Netflix Streaming just now. In thisone, Pryor plays Jack Brown, an unemployed reporter whose house may beput up for sale unless he gets a job so he finds employment, initiallyas a maid, for Gleason's ...
Richard Pryor stars as a down and out writer who ends up as a human toyfor multi-billionaire Jackie Gleason's son. The combination results incomedy that only a man like Richard Pryor could take and make evenfunnier.Shades of his stand up act stand out when the focus is on Pryor andsome of the situat...
Richard Pryor's early 80s running down the street on fire incident musthave affected him somehow. In his stand up,he jokes about it gettinggreat laughs. It seemed to have done something involving the projectshe chose. The Toy is about the lamest he ever chose,aside from I guessAnother You.A movie wh...
It's nearly a shot-by-shot remake for the French masterpiece (Le Jouet- 1976); so much for saying I think !. (Richard Pryor) filled it withhis own buffoonery, and some funny lines, but he couldn't capture theserious sense of the story, he almost dealt with the movie as a toyitself. He was a golden s...
The Toy (1982) was another Americanized remake of a French hit. RichardPryor also puts another nail in the coffin that once was his career bystarring in another sell-out role. During the seventies, Mr. Pryor wasonce an innovative comic who stretched the boundaries of bad taste.Now, he was starring i...
When I was a kid I actually loved this movie, but now that I'm a man, I'm kinda horrified by "The Toy." A rich white man buys a black man for his spoiled son? Or at least rents a black man for his son. And they take baths together? Yikes! I love Pryor, but I have to assume he tookthis gig for the mo...
As a child I loved this movie, I found it sweet and funny, the thing isas a child you love to see other kids getting away with being naughty,as an adult the goal posts change so I do think that it is for ayounger audience or for those watching for nostalgia. I did not findthe movie racist but I can ...

Indesperation, he applies for a maid's job for wealthy U.S. Bates (JackieGleason). Sydney Morehouse (Ned...
With Richard Pryor and Jackie Gleason as the stars most people wouldsay this has to be a funny film. Well there is a kid and he is kind ofwho the film revolves around so that will in all likelihood make thisone more cute than need be. Still, Pryor and Gleason, two guys knownfor comedy, going to be a...
The comedic might of Pryor and Gleason couldn't save this dog from thetissue-thin plot, weak script, dismal acting, and laughable continuityin editing this mess together. It has a very few memorable moments, butthe well dries up quickly. As a kid I remember this as a Luke-warmvehicle for the two act...
Yes, this is a wrong-headed and awkward little farce, but the stars arefun to watch. The Toy is the story of Richard Pryor desperately needinga job and being hired first as a cleaning LADY, and then as a playmatefor the spoiled son of a tycoon. Director Richard Donner is able toshowcase the tough ec...
Richard Pryor is a very funny man. This was my first experience seeinghim in a movie and I will be looking for more. The movie starts outabout Pryor needing to find a job. He gets hired by a rich CEO to behis kid's toy. Towards the end the plot starts to break away from whatthe movie initially start...
Richard Pryor again plays the bumbling idiot in this comedy with amorality twist. The premise revolves around Richard losing his house,an opportunity to make a lot of money fast being a human toy for a richstore owner and the hilarity that ensues. While the film (and Richard)are indeed funny, it's h...

One: Richard Pryor and Jackie Gleason, two great comics turned into sapsfor a bratty kid. They've both sold themselves out in this one, worse thanPryor's character.Two: Horrible, overly sentimental script that could have been used in aHarold Lloyd movie its so cliched.Three: Choice of a black ac...

Me and my sister used to watch this when we were children and we lovedit. In fact, the last time I saw it I was only 8 years old, but Iremember why I enjoyed the movie. I was too young to understand theadult politics but trust me this is a wonderful film for kids to watch.If I was to watch it now it...
Amazing, how does anyone of genuine comic talent get suckerd into makingaBAD movie? La Jouet (the original version) was pretty much the samestory.It was about how each of us can get caught in this situation. Not aboutrace. The second the US Version did this, it fell flat. I bet if it castanothe...
