Trivia

The Swedish title of Another You (1991), the next film of Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder, was "Se Upp Igen Blindstyre!" which is English for "Look Out Again, Blind Fool!". This suggested that it was a sequel to See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989) which translates into Swedish as "Hör Upp, Blindstyre!", which in turn translates into English as the similar phrase, "Listen Up, Blind Fool!". However, the two movies actually have no story connection at all. See more »

The Best Gene Wilder/Richard Pryor Movie!
13 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this movie! This is the best movie Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor were in together. (My second favorite is Stir Crazy.) How genius? A blind guy and a deaf guy running from the police and two murders and are wanted for a murder they never committed. Its just so simple yet so clever! I'm a big fan of both Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor as well as Kevin Spacey and John Capodice. My favorite scene in the movie is when Wally is trying to drive the police car and the police and the killers are after him. That was great! A blind man driving, hitting everything and driving in places he shouldn't have bee driving. Woo! Next time you want to see a Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor movie watch See No Evil, Hear No Evil.
