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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

There for awhile Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor put out a series of movies. Gene and Richard were great friends and the movies they made together were funny as hell. This one, See No Evil, Hear No Evil, was a good one. But it was the movie, Stir Crazy, that launched their successful stint together as a comedy team. I feel that these two talented people made a huge gain in RELIEVING some of the racial relations between peoples of different ethnicity. I have been around long enough to have seen times when racial peace was making huge strides. It's a shame that once again racism is rearing its ugly face again in our country. Humor was always (to me) the best way to relieve the tensions between all people's. The way Richard Pryor could tell it like it is, but at the same time have us laughing about it was truly amazing. Both of these gentlemen deserve some kind of humanitarian award for their example.
