Critic Reviews for Hickey & Boggs

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

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

Top Critic

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.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

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.

Fantastica Daily

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.

Gave it a spin off the TiVo and a cable recording after reading a friend's blog reviews of it, and I have to say that I was pretty impressed. Cosby and Culp manage a nicely bleak feeling from start to finish.

Well worth a rental.


A real surprise and a real treat, especially to see Cosby play it straight. Very well told story that played out very quickly with quick cuts and quick lines. If you are into film noir, this isn't too bad and one of the better modern ones.
