The comedy/thriller plods on for too long with tasteless and witless physical comedy, though it has a few funny moments.
| Original Score: C
Writer Colin Higgins makes a good directorial bow.
A funny, successful, and very derivative crime-comedy.
| Original Score: 3/4
The film clumsily and sluggishly mixes humor and suspense and fails at both.
| Original Score: 2/4
Unsatisfactory as a whole, the film is hilarious and tense in bits.
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
Chevy when he was funny, Goldie when she was starting her heyday, and Dudley too. What a deal.
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.
| Original Score: 2/5
Charming and goofy Hitchcock homage with great performances by Hawn and Chase.
| Original Score: 4/5
Look out for the elf!
brainless and silly... not that that's a bad thing
| Original Score: 3.5/5
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.
Director Colin Higgins plays foul with the audience, constructing some of the most dishonest suspense sequences ever filmed.
