"...FOUL PLAY, an excellent film, revives a relatively dormant film genre....[The film has] charm, humor and excitement....This is easily Hawn's best film to date..."
New York Times - 07/19/1978
"...[Hawn] is enough to make the most hardened villain or moviegoer melt....A slick, attractive, enjoyable movie..."
Sweet, unassuming librarian Gloria Mundy stumbles upon a plot to kill the Pope, who will be visiting soon. When Gloria realizes she's been marked for murder, she goes to detective Tony Carlson for help. Together the twosome set out to unravel the wacky but heinous murder plot. Along the way they encounter a deadly midget, a shadowy albino, a wild and kinky swinger (with an unbelievable bedroom), vanishing cadavers, and much more, culminating in a wild car chase through the steep streets of San Francisco. And as they make their way through all the lunacy, Gloria and Tony might just be falling in love, too... Chase and Hawn are the reason to watch this Hitchcockian update.
