Critic Reviews for Foul Play
Mr. Higgins's penchant for mixing visual elegance with coarse gags is equally ill-advised, especially because it makes him work the gags so hard.
Director Colin Higgins plays foul with the audience, constructing some of the most dishonest suspense sequences ever filmed.
The comedy/thriller plods on for too long with tasteless and witless physical comedy, though it has a few funny moments.
The film clumsily and sluggishly mixes humor and suspense and fails at both.
Ocasionalmente divertido, traz Chase tentando se afirmar como galã de ação e Hawn encantadora como em quase todos os seus filmes da época. Porém, é um filme descartável.
Chevy when he was funny, Goldie when she was starting her heyday, and Dudley too. What a deal.
Charming and goofy Hitchcock homage with great performances by Hawn and Chase.
Look out for the elf!
Truly enjoyable thrill comedy in the Hitchcock mode.
This is a finely tuned and fast-paced offering which is chock-full of black comic twists and perfect casting.
Audience Reviews for Foul Play
I wasn't expecting big things from this film, but having Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase starring in this, I had at least expected an easy watching comedy, but it had very little entertainment value.More
A funny, quirky, cool comedy with a good cast and an interesting story. I saw this a while ago, but I remember it was really good. I should watch this again sometime.More
