Over the years when nothing else is on I watch Bustin' Loose from time to time, it is such a good feel good movie. Neat story which has Richard Pryor as con man Joe Braxton who is maneuvered into taking a group of disturbed kids from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania along with their teacher Cicely Tyson to a farm in Washington state owned by the aunt and uncle of Cicely Tyson. This movie is a great journey of respect and friendship it shows just how that no matter how different people are they can become friends and learn to care and respect one another. This is not typical Richard Pryor you don't find much strong language but Pryor is plenty enough his comical and funny self to make this film a winner. So if you haven't seen this give it a watch it shows from time to time on cable. Probably one of the better movies of Richard Pryor.

After violating his probation, ex-con Joe Braxton is given a second chance at freedom: schoolteacher Vivian Perry hires him to repair an old school bus and use it to drive a group of special-education kids from Philadelphia, where their home, The Clarmont Center for Children, is being shut down, to their new home at Ms. Perry's Washington Farm. The kids have severe mental problems and Joe is not looking forward to the trip, but he starts to bond with them and Vivian and offers his support and love as he changes his outlook on life. But social worker Donald, who gave Joe his break (and is Vivian's lover), is hot on their trail and wants Joe back in prison. Joe and Vivian must now stop Donald from sending the children back to Philadelphia, where they'll have no future.
