The Toy

Looking for a job in Baton Rouge, unemployed journalist Jack Brown, played by Richard Pryor, begins working at a toy store as a janitor after struggling to find work. The owner of a local newspaper hires Jack to watch his son for a week. Although the two initially do not get along, Jack eventually teaches the boy about friendship.
