See No Evil, Hear No Evil

Arthur Hiller (1989)

15 Certificate


Our Score
This dreadful comedy stars Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor in their third movie together, and it manages to waste both men's ability and bore and deeply offend most viewers at the same time. Quite a feat. Their characters are deaf and blind respectively, and the movie hinges on a series of appalling jokes and unoriginal situations, wrapped around a makeshift murder plot. As well as being an original comic talent, Richard Pryor has also had the dubious distinction of appearing in a plethora of truly execrable movies, and this is certainly one of them.


A blind man and his deaf friend go on the run to clear themselves of a trumped-up murder charge. However, all kinds of oddball characters are on their trail, determined to get hold of a top-secret microchip that the duo do not realise they have. Comedy, starring Richard Pryor, Gene Wilder, Kevin Spacey, Joan Severance, Alan North and Anthony Zerbe.
