A comedy thriller that comes out a winner
Cute looking Hawn gets mixed up in a big conspiracy and detective Chase is assigned to the case.
This Hitchcockian comedy thriller is a truly wonderful little film. It’s cleverly written, expertly acted by the entire ensemble, suspenseful and outrageously funny when it wants to be. This happens to be one of the few movies that can successfully balance comedy and suspense and come out a winner.
The plot isn’t easily spotted and old Hitchcock’s influence are apparent, but the film feels completely original. Hawn is just wonderful here, Chase in his best ever role but Dudley Moore steals the show as a…well, likable pervert. The Bee Gees song Stayin’ Alive will probably best be remembered here, rather than in Saturday Night Fever. You’ll know when you see it.
“The Girl Who Knew Too Much”
Goldie Hawn gives a delicious comic performance as a San Francisco librarian who’s been living like a hermit, encouraged by a friend to get out there and shake her pom-poms; instead, she becomes indirectly involved with a pack of nefarious criminals who plan to assassinate the Pope (!) on his visit to the Opera House. The picture has some real ringers (Dudley Moore and his apartment full of sex toys, two little old ladies playing Dirty Scrabble), but Hawn is very appealing, especially while sitting in a movie theater with her black-rimmed glasses watching a film-noir about a detective and a Chinese sailor. Chevy Chase, in his debut as a leading man following his departure from “Saturday Night Live”, plays the lovestruck cop on the case and he’s very green; some of his lines fall flat (especially a tasteless bit about a government official wearing make-up), however his love scenes with Goldie are low-keyed and sweet. The bungled car-chase finale is a complete waste, yet the movie is buoyed by a terrific supporting cast, including funny Billy Barty, handsome Brian Dennehy (who gets lost in the action), scene-stealing Burgess Meredith and kinky, salacious Rachel Roberts (as “Delia Darrow”). A fitfully fun time. *** from ****
