Hopscotch

"OK"

Hopscotch Review


Often touted as one of the great cat-and-mouse games in movie history, Hopscotch's antics just don't stand up to some of its more expertly crafted contemporaries. Walter Matthau is unforgettable as an ex-CIA agent who's so bored he decides to write a tell-all memoir about his experiences as a spy. This sits poorly with his former bosses, who immediately plot to have him killed. Naturally, he outsmarts them at every turn, but the depth of "clever" twists never rises above identity changes and leaving tape recorders in hotel rooms he's just left. Overrated, unfortunately.
