The critics score on this movie show that they are useless. This is a classic and absolutely funny.

17% from the critics and 72% from the Audience? It's almost as if the self-absorbed pretentious blow-hards were completely out of touch with the consumer. It's a wonder that there are still paid critics in this age of global media. They are about as necessary as coal miners.

Here's a strange one. An almost completely unfunny vehicle for Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor (awful). What it desperately needs is more bad taste. The premise - blind guy hooks up with deaf guy - has great un-PC potential, but the whole thing is so underpowered and implausible that you watch it throughout wondering where the laughs went. Needed early-period Mel Brooks to shake it up.

Great movie, lots of laughs, even though the leads despised each other off camera and top notch tits!

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.

Gold from start to finish. What a double act and their last film together. This is probably just for fans of Wilder and Pryor but it cracks me up. "Fuzzy Wuzzy Was A Woman" timeless.

The 3rd and final buddy movie between Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder. Not as funny as their previous co-workings, but still an entertaining and fun ride. Lots of language and a scene of brief nudity. Seeing Kevin Spacey so young in his career makes it worth watching by itself. Rating: 7/10

Great comedy duo, so funny & natural onscreen chemistry.

Think I'll have to catch their other movies together.

Eve: What do you think you are doing?
Dave: I don't know, I'm blind. But this is what they tought us at Braille school, to just feel around and see what's happening!

Good comedy. This is noting speacial and with the talent involved I feel the film could have been better but it is still a good film

Pure mindless fun. Genius and I havent laughed that much in a while. This movie helps me get over judging a movie by critics' choices.

There is massive comedy appeal in the premise of a deaf man and blind man accused of murder and having to work together to find the real perpetrators. So much potential material here, plus the solid pairing of Richard Pryor and Gene Wilde. The plot fails to develop much further beyond the basic chase and it does sometimes resort to childish slapstick (I guess the temptation of having a blind man walk into a wall is too hard to resist). Thankfully it passes as a good comedy due to effective exploitation of the characters' handicaps with clever dialogue and gags, including a brilliantly tense blind man shoot-out.

So much fun! Always loved this one. Wilder and Pryor ham it up to great effect.

I'm intrigued by the difference of opinion of pro reviewers vs audience. I can only surmise that the pros are conscious of the politically incorrect slant and this becomes an overweening concern. But who cares. The movie is funny, the timing of the two leads is exceptional. I love movies with no laugh track. Laugh tracks a la the boob tube are evil. "Hey laugh because everyone else is laughing!". In a movie, they fly without a net -- either they are funny or they bomb. Wilder and Pryor nail it.

Funny film if you take it for what it is. I can see how this could be seen as offensive to the blind or deaf though.

The jail sequence... it's not perfect but it's still great.

David Lyons (played by Gene Wilder), a deaf man, runs a convenience store. He recently hired Wally Karue (Richard Pryor), a blind man. A murder is committed in front of the store and both are present but due to their impairments, can't identify the murderer. Moreover, they are the police's prime suspects and are arrested for the murder. They manage to escape but now they have the police and the actual murderers after them.

A good comedy, with Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder at the top of their games and at the peak of their partnership. Some great skits, generally revolving around their handicaps, and some great one-liners.

The deaf-guy-and-blind-guy routine works very well and is reasonably consistent. There are a few moments where you figure "he couldn't have heard/seen that" but it is generally quite sound.

The broader plot does bring down the quality a notch or two though, regenerating into farcical chase scenes or cheap stunts and jokes at times.

As mentioned, great work by Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor in the lead roles. Among the supporting cast, Joan Severance is worth watching for many reasons: stunningly beautiful and gives a solid performance as one of the bad guys.

Kevin Spacey demonstrates that even great actors have to start somewhere (this was his fourth feature film): his gets to play a cartoonish bad guy with a silly accent and even sillier moustache and has very little room to show his acting talents. Yet, from such beginnings, great careers are born.

Good entertainment.
