  1. S Campbell's rating of the film Hopscotch

    Matthau and Jackson are having a ball in this great spy caper with added Mozart

  2. Ashley Spendlove's rating of the film Hopscotch

    This one feels dated in both tone and execution, the script is workaday and yet the actors manage to transcend the weakness of the material. Matthau is always a joy, Glenda Jackson (if underused) brings old school spark, Ned Beatty is a perfect jerk and both Herbert Lom and Sam Waterston provide dignity and even pathos. I just wish it had a bit more weight and bite.

  4. captainfez's rating of the film Hopscotch

    I never thought I'd enjoy a Walter Matthau caper movie, yet here we are.

  5. Jenny Coldpussy's rating of the film Hopscotch

    The most impressive part of this film is how well Walter Matthau can pull off the unapologetic ear hair look.

  6. fearraigh's rating of the film Hopscotch

    It probably already looked very dated in 1980 but this Matthau vehicle is a hugely entertaining caper from start to finish. Can't help but like it.

  7. Simonas's rating of the film Hopscotch

    I wouldn't call it a good film, but it was totally worth watching, just for the share weirdness of it's goofy comedy approach to a cold war spy story that also tries to deliver a serious commentary.

  8. Jeremiah Johnson's rating of the film Hopscotch

    This could have inspired the Coen Brothers's Burn after Reading.

  9. Arsenewho's rating of the film Hopscotch

    More comedy than thriller, naive as hell but it does have some picaresque charm thanks to Matthau.

  10. Morten Halskov Jensen's rating of the film Hopscotch

  11. El Biffo's rating of the film Hopscotch

  12. Ezra Winton's rating of the film Hopscotch

    Snappy writing and a different take on the spy genre, if at times a little too over the top.

  13. clarud@hotmail.com's rating of the film Hopscotch

    Witty, but hasn't aged well. Probably created with the only intention of displaying Walter Matthau.

  14. msmichel's rating of the film Hopscotch

    Tired and dated spy comedy that finds ever unlikely leading man Walter Matthau as a seasoned spy who retaliates against the C.I.A. , when he's about to be put out to pasture, by writing a tell all memoir. Supporting cast is completely wasted here especially Glenda Jackson who is demeaned with a supporting girlfriend role. With barely a lick of humour or inspiration this one makes no memorable impression.

  15. James Mackin's rating of the film Hopscotch

    Has some fun spy moments, but not particularly memorable.

  16. lostlevel's rating of the film Hopscotch

    Pretty funny, it makes a nice change to watch something on MUBI that isn't harrowing.

  17. A-H-H-H's rating of the film Hopscotch

    Charming, witty, funny, and a pleasant waste of time.

  18. OcioActivo's rating of the film Hopscotch

    Could this be the Four Lions of its time? Replacing our current terrorism-fueled war with a cold one? Not only do I think so but Hopscotch has the brilliant mindset in its charm and comedy. The great Walter Matthau kills it as the CIA old-hand and nearly child-like rebel against his boss. The ride carries this great performance(s) and brings on a healthy does of MASH-like comedy to something serious.

  19. m00untain's rating of the film Hopscotch

    A clever spy comedy, becoming evermore ridiculous right up until the end. When the spy game was for gentlemen.

  20. Iulian Dumitrascu's rating of the film Hopscotch

    There is no reason to laugh during the first 40 minutes.

  21. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Hopscotch

    Edward Snowden should have taken a clue from Matthau's charming character; would have made him look less like a self-indulgent "hero-queen".

  22. Mark Tallo's rating of the film Hopscotch

  23. Allison Rung's rating of the film Hopscotch

    Totally pleasant caper; good for a Sunday evening.

  24. Jane de Deus's rating of the film Hopscotch

    That Glenda is some kind of lady.
