The film clumsily and sluggishly mixes humor and suspense and fails at both.

Ocasionalmente divertido, traz Chase tentando se afirmar como galã de ação e Hawn encantadora como em quase todos os seus filmes da época. Porém, é um filme descartável.
| Original Score: 3/5

The comedy/thriller plods on for too long with tasteless and witless physical comedy, though it has a few funny moments.

Director Colin Higgins plays foul with the audience, constructing some of the most dishonest suspense sequences ever filmed.

Mr. Higgins's penchant for mixing visual elegance with coarse gags is equally ill-advised, especially because it makes him work the gags so hard.

Farcical '70s comedy-mystery hybrid has violence, profanity.

Unsatisfactory as a whole, the film is hilarious and tense in bits.
