Unfortunately this 30+ year old comedy-murder mystery has dated, but Wilder and Pryor are great in first pairing.

Hitchcockian in nature, the film goes down very pleasantly with just the right mix of humor and suspense.

...the entire film might just be worth a look for the sequence in which Pryor teaches Wilder how to be black.

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.
