Hysterically funny spy spoof.
25 January 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I found Salt and Pepper to be a hysterically funny, well paced, beautifully sixties spy spoof. I'm gonna start doing reviews in a different style than I usually do, where I'm just gonna list the things I like and things I disliked. I know I'm not the only one on here that does this.

Things I liked:

-The two leads were hilarious and had great chemistry and interesting characters.

-Very cool jazz score.

-Very witty dialogue and some great lines. There was also some great slapstick gags mixed in there.

-Amusing action sequences. They may have not been the most exciting action scenes in the history of cinema, but they were certainly entertaining and well staged.

-The police inspector character was pretty hilarious.

-The sets and costumes were very awesomely sixties.

Things I disliked:

-Some people may find this movie to be sexist, since the two leads sometimes treat women as sex objects. There was also a couple of mildly racist jokes thrown in. But, the fact that the movie stars an interracial friendship should make up for all that.

Overall, I'd recommend this movie to anybody that enjoys action-comedies, especially ones that came from the sixties.
