This TV Movie/Series sequel was filmed and aired about a year after the original production ended on "Crazy Like a Fox", intended as a pilot in an attempt to revive interest in the series. Although ratings for the Sunday Night Movie airing were good, they were not good enough for CBS (or ether of the other networks) to reorder the series. See more »
Still Crazy Like A Fox has TV movie written all over it from the opening shot. Strangely this works in its favour as you never feel disappointed because you weren't expecting much. Monty Python fans will be interested to see a tragically miscast Graham Chapman as the police inspector. The sight of him trying to play tough cop when interrogating Warden (Harry Fox Sr) is the only thing in the film more ridiculous than the plot. Yet, despite the cliché overload, the film sneaks up on you and before you know it the hammy stereotyped acting and silly story start to be quite entertaining and two hours later you find that you've watched the whole film instead of getting up and doing something more useful. A guilty pleasure then.
