This is one of my all time favorite films. A classic in every way, with a wonderful cast, "Foul Play" is truly hilarious (and even scary in parts) with so many memorable lines they have stuck with me for a lifetime. Foul Play stars Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase and features a hilarious turn by Dudley Moore. It also has some memorable supporting parts by Burgess Meredith, Brian Dennehy, Racehl Roberts and Billy Barty. It was directed by Collin Higgins (who wrote Harold and Maude). This is one of my favorite films of all time; they used to play it on T. V. every year on my birthday, but aside from that; it is such a rip roaring classic! There are so many laugh out loud moments from this movie that I have never forgotten--it's also got some great shots of San Francisco and Marin. This movie never fails to make me laugh. "Foul Play" is a must see treat from the 70's!
