Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 09/26/1980
"...Stylish, lighter-than-air....Beautifully played by [Matthau and Jackson]..."
Empire - 06/01/2008
"Director Ronald Neame's aim with HOPSCOTCH was to create a spy movie where no-one was so much as scratched, which he achieved by turning Brian Garfield's earnest novel into a light comedy."
Sight and Sound - 07/01/2008
"With its cosy confrontations and bureaucratic bunglers, it's the caper mirror-image of the 1970s conspiracy thriller..."
