Russell Crowe cannot live forever on the merits of "Gladiator" and therefore he should put a bit of an effort into his career. This second rate, less than a "B" movie is not the vehicle to transport him to the forefront of media adoration, the immature script and over played fight scenes leave nothing to be desired. Frank Cappello not only wrote this junk but also directed it, the producers should be shot!!!!!

When I first heard about this film I was very dubious, Black Adder 1&2 were brilliant and Thin Blue Line extremely funny but Mr.Bean left me disappointed as did Black Adder 3. Other movies in the Rowen Atkinson stable such as Four Weddings and a Funeral and Jonnie English have proven to be talking points if nothing else.
Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised as this superbly clever and very, very funny film unfolded, Maggie Smith can do no wrong for me, she is one of the best actresses of the current era and is not afraid to take on any part.
I will not submit spoilers and so you will have to watch this one, it is well worth it.
See No Evil, Hear No Evil [DVD] [2000] <b>DVD</b> ~ Richard Pryor
If you have a vivid imagination and an incredible sense of humour, then you are halfway to understanding how funny this film is. Made in the heyday of the late Richard Priors' career it is an almost satirical look at the afflictions of the blind and deaf. Fortunately it does not cross the line(I know because I am 75% deaf) and therefore is very funny.
Wally (Richard Prior) and Dave (Gene Wilder) are witness ????? to a murder, Wally didn't see it and Dave didn't hear it but they are both wanted for it. The real killers (no spoilers) and the police are after them so they take the law into their own incapable hands and the results are incredibly funny. Only the team of Prior and Wilder… Read more
