Review: See No Evil, Hear No Evil BD + Screen Caps - Movieman's Guide to  the Movies

This has to be one of the funniest films ever made. Two of the best comic actors in recent history.Who has there been since? next to this film I would have to put stire crazy but see no evil just eclipses it with the perfect timing of the jokes and the best scene of all fuzzy wuzzy was a what?{HAS TO BE SEEN} – dereksays booyaa (IMDB – 10/10)

Most old humour like this does not get me but the situation of a blind man and a deaf man makes for a perfect duo. Yes, See No Evil, Hear No Evil sounds like a rump of satire over the top although from my experience done just right. The combination of the two stars Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder put 110 percent into the well-written performances. With a simple 18 million back behind it, it nearly tripled in profits at the box office.

Consuming this myself when DVD’s were a thing, it turned out way better than expected. Both lacking in their own sense witness a murder but one was listening with the other looking. There they pretty much take on a crew of bad guys luckily getting from one scene to the next. But within their struggle is the most wholesome thing about the whole thing. If you want a fun comedy of a different era, this is one choice worth considering.

For me to write about it now there is still heaps of memorability of it not mentioned here. Old fashioned in the best way possible, I totally recommend it to put some smiles on your dile. It does a lot of stuff at the same time as being dated to a specific degree. Overall, it is in the sevens which are pretty good for me and for the time period of the late eighties.

7.2/10
