Foul Play Academy Award Nomination! 

By Keith Simanton

Not short on murder, mayhem, or any other screwball '70s conventions, Foul Play is a wonderful vehicle for Goldie Hawn. She plays Gloria, a librarian "ready to take a chance again," who ends up the target of an assassination ring. Chevy Chase, fresh off of Saturday Night Live, does the closest thing to real acting he would ever achieve (okay, maybe Fletch) as Tony, the cop assigned to protect Gloria. Dudley Moore made an indelible impression on American audiences as Stanley Tibbets, a surprisingly kinky symphony conductor. But it's the quirky things that make this film: the grandmothers playing Scrabble with expletives, Burgess Meredith's snake Esme, the old Japanese couple in the back of the careening limo. From the opening credits with Barry Manilow crooning the title song, this is a fond trip down memory lane.

Academy Awards

Foul Play received an Academy Awards nomination for Music Best Song (Charles Fox - Music, Norman Gimbel - Lyrics).

"I LOVE this movie! It is so funny Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn are great together. It keeps you in suspense till the end not to mention laughs. I strongly recommend this movie."

--Michelle L

"An amiable,undemanding, good-natured comedy thriller. Goldie Hawn has never looked more attractive."


"I never watched Saturday Night Live as a kid, so I didn't know a lot about Chevy Chase, but I knew who Goldie Hawn was so, with that, I went to see "Foul Play". I remember laughing really hard when Dudley Moore opened up his "sex-dungeon" apartment to Goldie. I remember nearly falling out of my seat laughing. Great movie"
