Rating: C -- The comedy/thriller plods on for too long with tasteless and witless physical comedy, though it has a few funny moments. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Somewhere in the cumbersome comedy thriller Colin Higgins has made of Foul Play, lies the ghost of a good, old-fashioned mystery-comedy-romance. Full Review

Three Movie Buffs
Colin Higgins proves himself adept at recreating the style and themes of Hitchcock's films, as well as creating entertaining schemes. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review
El Pais (Spain)
One recognizes the romantic comedy impulse behind the sexual sparrings of Hawn and Chase. It's the execution that leaves everything to be desired. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Incredibly silly but very enjoyable ... Full Review
...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...
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.
