It could have been a lot funnier if Wilder was a more gifted comic.
| Original Score: B-
Unfortunately this 30+ year old comedy-murder mystery has dated, but Wilder and Pryor are great in first pairing.
| Original Score: 3/5
Hitchcockian in nature, the film goes down very pleasantly with just the right mix of humor and suspense.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
...the entire film might just be worth a look for the sequence in which Pryor teaches Wilder how to be black.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
All for fun and fun for all ...
| Original Score: 4/5
flashes of genius
A nifty little Hitchcock knockoff, with great chemistry between Wilder and Pryor.
Amusing comedy, but Pryor is not in it enough. Once they're together, it's gold.
The beginning of the perfectly splendid comic duo of Wilder and Pryor. And man, do I ever miss them.
