Product Details


Product Description

It was murder! The blind guy couldn't see it. The deaf guy couldn't hear it. But now they're both wanted for it in the drop-dead comedy, SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL, that reunites the outrageous comedy duo Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder (Silver Streak, Stir Crazy). Meet Wally and Dave. Wally is blind, Dave is deaf. When a man is murdered outside the newsstand where they work, the police collar these two unlikely buddies as their main suspects. A hilarious chase ensues as Wally and Dave hightail it from the New York Police Department to snag the real bad guys- the wickedly beautiful Eve (Joan Severance, Black Scorpion) and her cold-blooded cohort, Kirgo (Kevin Spacey, American Beauty). From director Arthur Hiller (Silver Streak) comes this zany comedy caper you won't want to miss.

3.0 out of 5 stars Harmless May 23 2004
Format:DVD
* Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder have to be regarded as one of the
classic comedy teams of sorts. I was a fan of Pryor's ever since I
had the enforced opportunity -- while sweating in a barracks bay in
the middle of Texas during 1974 -- of virtually memorizing every word
of Pryor's album THAT N****R'S CRAZY while other members of my platoon
played it several times a night for a period of months. (Actually,
except for the monotony, I didn't mind: Pryor's skewering of
hopelessly square white people was not without justice, and was
balanced by a no-less-unjust and much more brutal skewering of his
brethren -- but I digress.) And though I am not a big Gene Wilder
fan, somehow he makes a perfect foil to Pryor.
In SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL Pryor plays Wally, an excitable blind
man, who becomes extricated with Dave, a cranky deaf man played by
Wilder. Through a series of coincidences, the two are implicated in a
murder, and must cooperate to clear themselves and bring the real
killers to justice.
Now, anybody who has ever studied the least amount of statistics
(which roughly describes the level of my knowledge on that score)
knows that the distribution of almost anything follows what is called
a "normal" curve: there's a few things on the low end, there's a few
things on the high end, and there's a big bulge in the middle. This
movie falls clearly into the bulge. What can I say about a movie that
I can't have the pleasure of getting excited about or the satisfaction
of taking an axe to? Not that much.

1.0 out of 5 stars A relentlessly predictable, unfunny comedy May 12 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I absolutely hated it! Not one chuckle could be heard out of me while painfully viewing this idiotic, cliche-ridden, and predictable exploitation picture. A blind man and a deaf man meet in a drug store, a murder occurs which the deaf of course doesn't hear, the bumbling duo is accussed of the murder and from then on you can see every single joke coming (the blind man driving a car, the deaf man not hearing some important details in the case, typically low-grade violence and clues to the murder which the team don't really understand since, needless to repeat, they are handicapped). Plus it carries its one joke for a ridiculous near two hours. Blind and deaf people are nothing like the idiots portrayed here. They are smart and important in their own way. I know if any person with these disabilties saw this junk, they'd be downright offended. At least the blind would be at an advantage since they wouldn't be able to see it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pryor and Wilder at their best Oct. 19 2000
By jao
Format:VHS Tape
In "See No Evil, Hear No Evil" Richard Pryor is a blind man and Gene Wilder is a deaf man. They both inadvertently team up when they are suspected as being the murderers of a man that is killed while at Wilder's store. They have to find a way to keep away from the cops while they try to find and capture the real killers.
"See No Evil, Hear No Evil" has some comedy sequences you'll never forget once you see them. The parts I remember the most are when the police woman is trying to get a head shot of Gene Wilder and it just doesn't work out for her,and the parts where Gene Wilder keeps saying times such as 1 o'clock, telling Pryor where to punch because he can't see who he's supposed to be hitting are funny too. The whole movie is hilarious, and I recommend anybody who likes comedy movies to get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Dynamic Duo Oct. 1 2003
Format:DVD
This is, without a doubt, one of the funniest films I've ever seen. It walks the line between clever and juvenile as far as humor goes, but what a flick! Pryor and Wilder's chemistry is fantastic, as usual. These two have got to be the best comedy duo ever. They're both hilarious on their own. Sure, it might be a little un-pc to get laughs from handicapped characters, but I really don't think the film exploits that angle all too much. Most of the humor basically comes from alot of incidents of miscommunication. Richard Pryor's performance of the blind man is scarily realistic and well done. Wilder's once again the sarcastic wise guy he does so well. Most people have seen this before, but if you haven't, you shouldn't wait another minute. If you have seen it, see it again. Why not?

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Wilder and Pryor's best! Sept. 29 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this movie when it was in the theater in 1989. I liked it so much that I had to buy it on VHS. Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor star as two innocent guys-one deaf, one blind, and both are on the run for a murder they didn't commit! Add the wonderful talents of Joan Severance and Kevin Spacey, and you have the makings of one well scripted and very funny movie! Oh, and let's not forget Alan North as the police chief. The film's plot makes for a cops and robbers type of suspense. Of all of Gene Wilder's and Richard Pryor's works, "See No Evil, Hear No Evil" is as equally funny as "Silver Streak", which makes it a must buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely funny... March 9 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Some very funny bits in this one, especially when Pryor and Wilder play the Doctors - "Im from Sveeden, and your a sveety" - I don't know if it ranks as "Stir Crazy" funny but definitely worth the watch. Look for Kevin Spacey as the hitman, many may have forgotten his performance in this. For interest to Joan Severance fans: She appears topless in a hilarious scene. The catch is there are two versions: The one I rented doesent show her completely but I saw a version on Encore which showed everything. Besides that, this is a cant miss for Pryor/Wilder fans.
