Review

A star rating of 1 out of 5.

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.
