Unsatisfactory as a whole, the film is hilarious and tense in bits.

Chevy when he was funny, Goldie when she was starting her heyday, and Dudley too. What a deal.

This is a finely tuned and fast-paced offering which is chock-full of black comic twists and perfect casting.

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.

Cinema em Cena

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.

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.
