This day-in-the-life cult comedy focuses on a group of friends working at Sully Boyar’s Car Wash in Los Angeles. The team meets dozens of eccentric customers —including a smooth-talking preacher, a wacky cab driver, and an ex-convict—while cracking jokes to a constant soundtrack of disco and funk. The sprawling ensemble cast includes Richard Pryor, Franklin Ajaye, Sully Boyar, Bill Nunn, George Carlin, the Pointer Sisters, and many more.

With hit songs by Rose Royce and a soundtrack by Norman Whitfield, CAR WASH won the Technical Grand Prize and Best Music Award at the Cannes Film Festival as well as a Grammy for Best Album of Original Score.
