Stir Crazy (1980)

R 12/12/1980 (US) Comedy 1h 51m

Two jailbirds who just want out of the cage.


New Yorkers Skip Donahue and Harry Monroe have no jobs and no prospects, so they decide to flee the city and find work elsewhere, landing jobs wearing woodpecker costumes to promote the opening of a bank. When their feathery costumes are stolen and used in a bank robbery, they no longer have to worry about employment — they're sent to prison.
