Uproariously funny and assuredly un-PC. I can imagine honkies disliking this film; I, however, was delighted and amused by it. De Palma should have skipped his lengthy Hitchcock phase and his gangster phase and made more comedies like this. That said, I will still embrace Dressed to Kill over Get to Know Your Rabbit any day of any year.

De Niro is funny here playing the cop. I would rather see him for those few minutes than in "almost" any of his other pictures. The improvisation clicks, I think, but not always. The film falls short at times, can see why the guy before me trashed it. Only I definitely saw a lot of promise as far as the director went.

OMG, what a load of garbage! This 1970 film by Brian De Palma shows none of the promise that he'd become famous for as the decade progressed. Instead it's a mostly improvised mess with every scene getting worse than the one that preceded it. This is a dreg of a movie made during the revolution that was happening in Hollywood by the likes of Dennis Hopper, Bogdonavich, Schlesinger, etc I wanted to see it because of the young Robert De Niro but he cant save it. I turned it off after 30 minutes.
