Disappointing to say the least, considering its star talent in Wilder and Radner.

Wilder and Radner at their side-splitting best

July 4, 2005

Wilder and Radner shoot for an old-fashioned romantic mystery thriller kinda thing; they ended up shooting themselves in the foot.

Audience Reviews for Hanky Panky

Very weak and lifeless comedy/murder/detective film which can't quite decide what it really wants to be overall, Wilder of course is a comic genius and Radner was also at her peak of powers but neither really come across as funny or interesting. The whole film is pretty dull with nothing much happening anywhere, one minute its a 'who done it?' the next its a slapstick farce? could work but here it simply doesn't and its a shame as everyone loves Wilder and wants to see him in good films.

Super Reviewer

An interesting idea, but it isn't as funny as it thinks it is. It's just okay.

Where's Richard Pryor when you need him?
