Everybody is cleaning up and getting down in the comedy Car Wash - the first "disco slacker" movie from the decade that brought you the tube top, the polyester suit and lots of good times. It's just a typical day in the lives of the employees, customers and passersby of a Los Angeles car wash - but what a day! There's a would-be robbery... an assembly line of the weirdest, baddest, shadiest characters you've ever met... and lots of booty-bumping music to pass the hours until quitting time. Featuring outrageously hilarious performances by George Carlin, "Professor" Irwin Corey, The Pointer Sisters, and Richard Pryor as Daddy Rich, a flamboyant Reverend who preaches the goodness of the dollar, Car Wash is a timeless classic celebrating an era devoted to living life in the fast lane.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A cheerful, somewhat vulgar, very cleverly executed comedy...
Fresh: Uses gritty humor to polish clean the souls of a lot of likeable street people.
Fresh: The screenplay and the direction juggle the characters so adroitly, this is almost a wash-and-wax M*A*S*H.
Fresh: Critics seemed to like this less than audiences; personally, I had a ball.
Working at the Car Wash
This is classic. This is the best day in, day out movie ever.
