See No Evil, Hear No Evil

Critics Consensus

A film whose title offers words to live by as well as a warning, See No Evil, Hear No Evil proves that even a brilliant comedy duo can team up for an unfunny dud.

Movie Info

Wally Karue (Richard Pryor) is a blind man looking for a job. Dave Lyons (Gene Wilder) is a deaf man who runs a newsstand. When Dave hires Wally, he never imagines they'll have to work together to survive. After a murder occurs at their newsstand, they figure out who the killer is with their collective senses -- but the investigating detective (Alan North) pegs them as the main suspects. When the real killer (Joan Severance) returns to cover her tracks, the two must really cooperate to live.

Audience Reviews for See No Evil, Hear No Evil

  • Mar 03, 2013
    Pretty funny in places, The story was good and I don't think its been done before, Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder both play their parts well which is why the film is as good as it is.

    "Fuzzy Wuzzy was a woman?" Arguably the best of the Pryor/Wilder comedies, See No Evil, Hear No Evil is outlandishly funny. When a deaf man and a blind man are arrested for a crime that they didn't comment, they must team up and find the real criminals in order to prove their innocence. The comedy stylings are hilarious, and Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder are in top form; seamlessly playing off each other. Incredibly fun and entertaining, See No Evil, Hear No Evil delivers a ton of laughs.

    In one of the most underrated crime comides Pryor an Wilder team up for another great comedy. I laughed just as much as I did in Stir Crazy and they had no holes in the movie and it genuinely felt like it was a blind man and a deaf man. Don't listen to the critics on this one, this was a great movie
