Trivia

After the box-office success of Stir Crazy (1980), Richard Pryor, Gene Wilder and Director Sidney Poitier were meant to re-team for Hanky Panky (1982). Ultimately, only Poitier and Wilder did. Pryor dropped out for unknown reasons, and his part was re-written for a female lead. That female lead ended up being played by Gilda Radner, the woman who was Gene's third wife. See more »

Goofs

When Wally stops the police car after driving into the sides of beef at the meat market, you can clearly see that it is Wally's stunt double driving through the driver side window. See more »

Dave: You're blind?
Wally: Yes I'm blind, what are you, fucking deaf?
Dave: Yes, I'm fucking deaf!
Wally: You're really deaf?
Dave: I'm really deaf.
Wally: Then how do you know what I'm saying?
