Foul Play

I’ve been thinking of going back and watching some of the top grossers of the 80s, year by year, and as I was coming up with titles for 1980, a couple of friends suggested I go back to this movie, which came out in 1978. It was pretty fun to watch, and wow, what a nostalgic trip to see all of those character actors of that era that used to be so familiar, but that I haven’t thought about (or seen) in ages. And yeah, Goldie Hawn sure was cute back then. The funniest scene has to be the two old ladies playing Scrabble, and you gotta give them props for using real Japanese actors to play Japanese tourists in one of the sequences, something you didn’t really get much of in Hollywood, especially back then. Kojak! Bang, bang!
