Goofs

When Dave (the seeing but deaf one) and Wally (the blind but hearing one) are escaping from police custody, they try a locked door and Dave steps away to look around. With his back turned to Wally, Wally frantically yells for Dave by name, and Dave reacts by turning around and going back to Wally and reassuring Wally that he (Dave) is right there. See more »

Quotes

[Dave doesn't hold up any fingers]
Dave: How many fingers am I holding up in front of your eyes right now?
Wally: Three!
Dave: That's good. That's pretty good, considering that he's blind.

Alternate Versions

On the UK DVD print in the scene where Gene Wilder pretends he is pointing a gun at Joan Severance when she walks out of the shower, the camera seemingly zooms in to a head & shoulders close-up of her. This has obviously been edited for DVD purposes because on the original VHS edition her breasts are clearly seen in the shot. As it was clearly one of the standout scenes in the whole movie it was very apparently missing when the DVD was released. See more »

When two become one
15 September 2001 | by PetruchioSee all my reviews

"See no evil, Hear no evil"; a perfect title for an hilarious script that was brilliantly portrayed by Gene Wilder (Dave) and Richard Pryer (Wally). The tale of two "handicapped" (as Dave remarks at the end of the film, "I'm not handicapped, I have you") individuals who come together to be ones eyes. The hilarious duo get caught in a crime they did not commit and do everything in thier power to rid them of the accusation.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this movie tremendously. I remember watching it when it first came out in 1989 and thinking, "wow...what a funny flick". Being only 11 at the time, I didn't really understand the hilarity of all the jokes that was in it. The reason why I watch it again now... 13 years later is because of one Kevin Spacey (Who plays Kirgo, the crook). I'm in the process of collecting all of his movies... and this one just happens to be one in that list. I'm glad that it is. I find the script to be wonderfull, the acting brilliant and the time spent watching it a definate fun time. Great movie!!
