From Amazon.co.uk

See No Evil, Hear No Evil is a comedy thriller about disability that teeters perpetually on the brink of execrable taste, but more often ends up being bland. Brash blind Wally (Richard Pryor) and mild-mannered, cute deaf Dave (Gene Wilder) form a working partnership based partly on mutual regard and partly on desperation. A man is killed at the counter of their cigar store and neither of them can quite account for their actions or identify the killer, Eve (Joan Severance). They find themselves arrested and subsequently on the run. Eve and her henchman--a surprisingly sinister Kevin Spacey--pursue them remorselessly, searching for a gold coin that is more and less than it appears. Mild sexual chemistry between Wilder and the villainess is perhaps one of the few elements here not entirely watered down from late-period Hitchcock. Playing disability for slapstick is perhaps not the most enlightened way to increase sympathy for the disabled: this is a crass film whose good intentions are more than usually fragile.

On the DVD: the disc includes a rather smug featurette and filmographies of the two stars. --Roz Kaveney

I wish Pryor and Wilder would make more movies togther in the 90's! they were such a pair! ashame Pryor got ill and sadly died last year :(

If you like this, you must get Stir Crazy :) theres also Silver Streak which should have had pryor in it more and another you which is ok

anyway, you won't be disappointed, comics that know how it is done right! forget those silly teen films like american pie!! this is the real deal

Richard Pryor plays a blind man, Gene Wilder plays a deaf man. That's the films concept. And on the strength of Silver Streak, and Stir Crazy, the studio took a gamble on offending a lot of people.

Somewhere in the film there is a story about a murder and the two witnessing it, but then they become suspects in the murder, and the cops are after them, and a pre fame Keving Spacey is after them too (you can tell he's pre fame, because he has his unsightly growth).

Throw in a beauty of an eighties soundtrack, and a joke about being blind or deaf every five minutes, then serve with a huge slice of cheese.....

From what you've just read, you'd expect me to despise the film, but it was released when I was twelve, and it was silly and profane enough to demand repeat viewings, so its a bit of a guilty pleasure for me.

What is unique is that the film could never be remade, because Hollywood is way to PC to even chance a film like this, look at Mr. Magoo, the risible Nielsen film, and read the disclaimer that film carried. 16 years ago, they were worrying about upsetting people with a kids movie.

Pryor and Wilder still have that wonderful chemistry together, and every scene they share is comedy gold, but it's the rest of the film that really lets it down. It's just too perfunctory and bland to keep up with the leads, so come the end, it's as if everyone else has given up and just let the two take over.

The comedy is stupid and very derogatory, but at the end of the day, it's the cinematic equivalent of watching an old lady fall over.

You know you shouldn't laugh, but you do anyway.

I remember flicking through the channels to see what was on and my Auntie pointed out this film called See no evil Hear no evil, she said it was so funny that we just had to watch it. I wasnt to sure about it but said ok and from the first 10 minutes of the film I was in stiches I just couldnt stop laughing. The car chase scene with a blind man driving.... well you can imagine.
In three words "buy it now"
But be prepared to have a sore stomach from laughing so hard

Wilder and Pryor are pushed together again to star in this excellent comedy about a blind man (Pryor) and a deaf man (Wilder) who are framed for a crime they didn't commmit.
What follows is predictable, yet hilarious jokes and non-stop action from the two actors, who bounce brilliantly off each other in their pursuit to find the real bad guys.

Hilarious comedy and by far the best collaboration between these two great actors. As the title indicates the story revolves around two friends, one blind and one deaf, and their adventures in escaping a murder charge.
The film contains some brilliant comedy scenes and my favourtie in particular... Fuzzy Wuzzy was a woman?

This has to be my one of my all time favorite Comedy movies...
I love this film. The movie is based around two guys one Black and Blind (Played to perfection by Richard Pryor) the other, White and Deaf (Played by the equally funny Gene Wilder). Both are accused of killing the bookie of the Blind Guy this leads to a hilarious chase across the county and them trying to uncovering the people who set them up.
I could easily go on and on about this movie but in doing so would ruin it for you. This is one of the only movies that I have seen that I remember laughing untill there where tears in my eyes.
This gets a 10/10 from me and I only hope you love it as much.

Plot is interesting and the duets between Wilder and Pryor are surely over the top....really it's one of the funniest comedies of all time....Pryor is at his best and the scene of the car is simply anthology....the movie also is interesting for the appearance of Kevin Spacey in one of his first roles...he is perfect in the shape of a gentleman English killer....Joan Severance is simply amazing, the scene in which she is forced to slip away her towel by a hard-on Gene Wilder is one of the funniest and sexiest ever seen....ending, the movie is a corn stone of the American comedy
