Fresh: ...the entire film might just be worth a look for the sequence in which Pryor teaches Wilder how to be black.

Fresh: It could have been a lot funnier if Wilder was a more gifted comic.
- Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews, Thursday, June 24, 2010
This is both a thriller and a comedy, but not a spoof exactly. I really like this movie, it has an excellent cast and a great story. I highly recommend it.

Enjoyable train ride. Fun with Gene and Richard. It's a decent balance of comedy, action and romance. Harmless.
