Movie Info

Walter Matthau plays a CIA agent who's been confined by office politics to a desk job. The disgruntled Matthau quits the service and heads to Europe, where he links up with former lover (an fellow ex-agent) Glenda Jackson. All goes smoothly until Matthau acts on the advice of yet another retired agent, Russian Herbert Lom, who suggests that Matthau write a tell-all autobiography. Spitefully, Matthau sends out copies of his first chapter to the heads of the CIA agencies throughout the world--and

a light, breezy riff on spy movie conventions

Ronald Neame's cheeky spy comedy Hopscotch isn't quite an awful movie, but it's so thoroughly and relentlessly mediocre...

Audience Reviews for Hopscotch

Half boring, and half funny. This movie isn't really worth watching unless you're a fan of Landau. The story is kind of silly, but it's okay.

Okay caper suffers from miscasting of Matthau in the lead, his action are just too slow for him to be convincing as a man of stealth. Glenda is wasted in a nothing part.

Its all very silly, but still entertaining. I can't help but enjoy something that makes our intelligence organizations look like a bunch of bumbling idiots. Matthau is great, as is the score which consists of random Mozart, Puccini, and Rossini selections.

Though it's aged a bit awkwardly in an era where espionage films are expected to deliver thrills, Hopscotch remains an amusing comedy bolstered considerably by the presence of Walter Matthau.
