      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      A film whose title offers words to live by as well as a warning, See No Evil, Hear No Evil proves that even a brilliant comedy duo can team up for an unfunny dud.

      Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune This dubious concept might have worked if someone had written something funny for either comic actor to say. Rated: 1/4 Mar 27, 2019 Full Review Kevin Thomas Los Angeles Times "No Evil, Hear No Evil" leaves us hoping we haven't seen the of Wally and Dave. Mar 27, 2019 Full Review Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader This tasteless, formulaic, mainly unfunny, but otherwise harmless romp was scripted by five people and is served up like meat and potatoes by hack director Arthur Hiller. Mar 27, 2019 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) It's a grand shame. Pryor and Wilder vigorously driving in first place, deserved a much better vehicle. [Full review in Spanish] Jul 12, 2022 Full Review Dennis King Tulsa World And while it's not lightning this movie captures, it does generate more than the regular output of high-concept wattage usually expected from such calculated, commercial comedies. Rated: 3/5 Mar 28, 2019 Full Review Roger Hurlburt South Florida Sun-Sentinel The film is great entertainment. Mar 27, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
