Gilligan and the Skipper as cops
24 November 2012 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Stories of incompatible duos are a common sight, but "They Went That-A-Way & That-A-Way" is still really funny. It's basically what would happen if Gilligan and the Skipper or Laurel and Hardy were cops. Chuck McCann is the competent but grouchy one while Tim Conway is the friendly but stupid one. Posing as cons in a prison to get info out of an inmate, they cause all sorts of silliness. It gets particularly goofy towards the end when they try to contact the new governor. Not any kind of special movie, but just some plain old fun laughs, mainly since Conway's character always tries too hard to be sociable to the hardened criminals.

Also starring Richard Kiel, Dub Taylor (Michael J. Pollard's father in "Bonnie and Clyde"), Reni Santoni, Lenny Montana (Luca Brasi in "The Godfather") and Grace Zabriskie.
