Movie Info

The stars of the witty TV series I Spy were reunited for this downbeat crime thriller, which takes a much darker and more violent look at the lives of two detectives for hire. Al Hickey (Bill Cosby) and Frank Boggs (Robert Culp) are a pair of private eyes who are approached by an attorney to find his girlfriend, who has gone missing. Their investigation leads them to a large sum of money from a Pittsburgh bank robbery. It seems that the woman in question has married the leader of a leftist

"Hickey and Boggs" is not involved in a story or with characters really worthy of a full theatrical treatment.

Suffers through audience never being entirely certain as to the identity of some of the characters.

This was Culp's only venture into movie directing, and he handles the assignment well, and he and Cosby are both credible in their roles.

Walter Hill wrote this tough, uncompromising story of two down-on-their-luck private eyes. Marks a career high for both stars of TV's I Spy. Another of those overlooked 1970s gems that's ripe for rediscovery.

Not a pretty story, but it should bring a smile to Peckinpah.

Audience Reviews for Hickey & Boggs

Much darker than their "I Spy" pairing, Culp and Cosby play out this police corruption drama to its fullest.
