Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder were some of the funniest guys to ever live, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen See No Evil, Hear No Evil. I heard it was pretty hilarious, so watching it was inevitable for me. I also noticed a young Kevin Spacey in the movie in one of his earliest roles.
The plot is about a pair of handicap guys named Wally and Dave. Wally is blind as a bat, and Dave literally can’t hear a thing. However they do work together, but one day a gentlemen comes in looking for Wally. Dave turns the other direction, and finds the man has died in the floor. The only clue Dave has is a small glimpse of the beautiful woman responsible walking away.
However the police think Dave and Wally were responsible, and the real murderer Eve realizes that the duo is her only hope in finding what she was looking for. So Eve and her partner Kirgo pose as their lawyers to get them free. Dave and Wally realize who they really are and hatch a plan to get the truth back in order.
I knew I would like See No Evil, Hear No Evil, and I loved it. The humor doesn’t hold anything back, and provides a lot of laughs. A lot of movies from the 80’s haven’t aged well, but this isn’t one of them. It’s a shame Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder are no longer with us.
