Just bought it on DVD. I don't remember it at all. Going to watch it tonight.

You'll enjoy it, trust me. It's the perfect blend of suspense and humor, as writer/director Colin Higgins was usually quite good at doing, and Goldie and Chevy have terrific chemistry, as usual.

A wonderful movie, sort of like a funny, popcorn Hitchcock film. And Chris, you are right: Pre-jerk Chevy and Goldie do have terrific chemistry. They are really great together and make a lovely couple. Critic Roger Ebert hilariously noted that the movie uses the cliche of the movie car that is battered up and driven by the beautiful young woman, who is just coming off a bad relationship. It backfires as she drives off into her new life. (Ebert was a brilliant movie critic for noticing little bits like this.) Heck, Colin Higgins even underscores the opening scene with the Barry Manilow song on the soundtrack, "Ready to Take a Chance Again." LOL

Good film. Chase and Hawn are great and Dudley Moore shines as Stanley Tibbets. A wonderful and funny way to start his US career.

Liked it back then. The albino freaked me out. I was just a kid then.

Because I just watched it, it made me want to buy Micki and Maude-with Dudley Moore, so I got that movie in a 4 pack of movies, the other 3 movies were Hanky Panky, Modern Romance, and There's a Girl in My Soup, I have never seen any of those.

Rewatched Foul Play (1978)

Nice San Francisco scenery, cool cast and D1ck Tracy style bad guys.
Fun film which definitely also has it´s flaws.

Foul Play is a fun film, no classic, nothing earth shattering, sort of a very, very low-key Hitchc*ck homage. I will say that Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn have excellent chemistry together.
