Editorial Reviews

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 comedyduo 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 thesetwo unlikely buddies as their main suspects. A hilarious chase ensues as Wally and Dave hightail itfrom 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Wilder and Pryor's best! September 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Classic September 10, 2005
Format:DVD
I've seen this film five times since it was first released.

As I grow in age and watch this movie, I feel almost robbed that I wasn't either around, or old enough to appreciate the pure genius that both Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor held.

This film is about a blind man (played wonderfully by Richard Pryor) who's down on his luck and in need of a job. Luckily for him, a deaf newsstand owner (played with all the comic gusto he can muster by Gene Wilder) happens to be hiring.

Pryor owes a bookie big time, and when the bookie comes looking for him at his new place of employment, chaos ensues because he's murdered. Wally (Pryor) doesn't see it, and Dave (Wilder) doesn't hear it. The murderers get away and Dave and Wally are suspected. Their misson: clear their name.

Craziness and hilarity ensue.

Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor are two highly underrated talents before the camera. The adventures that these two poor characters go through is something that a wide audience can enjoy. The use of two ailments such as deafness and blindness is not exploited or made fun of, just used for great comic timing and situations.

If you're a fan of great comedy, and pretty good action that features two comic geniuses, I highly suggest this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest Movie I Have Seen In My Life April 15, 2000
By Heather
Format:VHS Tape
I had to go and rent this movie after I saw Stir Crazy. This one was just as hilarious. I could not stop laughing throughout the entire movie. Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor are great in this movie, just like they are in any movie. My favorite part is when they could not get either one to look at the camera after they got arrested.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Seeing and Hearing September 24, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder team up for their third film SEE NO EVIL,HEAR NO EVIL. They together starred in SILVER STREAK(1976) and STIR CRAZY(1980). Wally Carou(Pryor) is blind. David Lyons(Wilder) is deaf. Wally applies for a position as a sales associate in David's magazine stand. After a customer,Wally's bookie,is threateningly shot to death by a beautiful woman named Eve(Joan Severance),Wally and David witness the customer's dead body and are framed for the murder which they were not responsible for. There are many silly scenes in this film.One where David and Wally fake foreign accents. Also,when eating ice cream on cones in the park,Wally crowns David with his(Wally's) cone and in the last scene,in that same park,David does the same to Wally. It was so funny when David labeled Wally in another scene as a "blind egotistical ---hole who denies he can't see s--t". David and Wally end up framing Eve with the help of Wally's sister Adele(Kirsten Childs). Gene Wilder met his current wife while filming this movie in 1988. He was then married to comedienne Gilda Radner who died of ovarian cancer at age 42 in May 1989,the month this film was theatrically released. Stewart Copeland of the rock band The Police wrote the soundtrack music for this film. There's also a scene where Wally and David "go on a cable ride". Jim Belushi and Charles Grodin did the same in director Arthur Hiller's next film,TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Spokane viewer couldn't have said it better! September 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This film is truly hysterical and why the critics hated it, I'll never know. Great performances by Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor, and Kevin Spacey is a hoot with that mustache and accent. Watch it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic comedy July 28, 2005
Format:DVD
Before '89 we already knew that Richard Prior was one of the greatest comedians who ever lived. And then in '89 he teamed up with Gene Wilder in 'See no Evil, Hear No Evil'. This movie is about two guys, one deaf, one blind, who are framed for a murder they didn't even commit. The acting is amazing, I mean what would you expect from Prior or Wilder, they even act like foreign doctors in one part! If I said anymore I would reveal many spoilers to you, so just get this movie!
