Car Wash is perhaps remembered more for its disco soundtrack (including Rose Royce’s massive hit with the title track) than for its quality as a film. This is unfair, as Joel Schumacher’s script, taking a stylistic cue from films such as Robert Altman’s Nashville (1975), becomes on screen an amiable, rambling, and very enjoyable comedy. It takes place over a single summer day at the Dee-Luxe Car Wash as it enjoys the patronage of an eccentric stream of briefly-appearing customers including Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Bill Duke, the Pointer Sisters, Brooke Adams, Antonio Fargas, and Danny DeVito. Less than dedicated, the staff focus on their own concerns, which include imminent auditions and winning concert tickets on a radio phone-in show. For those willing to go with its flow, Car Wash makes for a fun and carefree viewing experience.
