Now everyone believes that he's the killer. A mysterious group that's after the package is now after him. His only ally is Kate Hellman, who has secrets of her own. To clear his name they have to find out what was in the package, who wants it and why. Written by eayala8. Imagine Sidney Poitier doing a North by Northwest type movie. That is pretty much what Hanky Panky is. Sidney Poitier is no Alfred Hitchcock, though.
Gene Wilder alias Michael Jordan saves this movie from being very mediocre. One has to go back to the movie is actually situated in where things like national security and cold war had other dimensions than today.
So take a little bit of murder mystery, a little bit of spy movie, add a neurotic character Wilder and his big-staring-eyes sidekick Gilda Radner , take a few villains a not quite convincing Richard Widmark , smashing bottles, men in dresses yes, Wilder, too , stupid policemen, grim-looking NSA people and presto, racing here, racing there, driving, flying, smashing, that's the movie. Oh, did I forget to mention the really beautiful scenery of the Grand Canyon when flying within the Canyon was still allowed?
This flight is really a wild ride and there are some low-level laughs in the cabin: how much intestinal gas can a fat pilot stand before he suddenly dies of what? If you're in for computer history, observe the excessive use of data tape and the by then state-of-the-art 3D-graphics.
And the DVD is too expensive for not featuring any special features except of a full screen trailer. But if you own the DVD, watch that trailer, but don't fall asleep: would one advertise a screwball comedy like this in such a lame way, today?
